Today we’re releasing Camo 2. Camo 2 takes all the magic of Camo, improves on it, and brings it to any webcam, built-in camera, connected pro camera or action camera to give them next-gen capabilities. These include beautiful bokeh "portrait" mode, spotlight, natural privacy blur, background replacement, auto-framing face tracking, and cinematic "LUT" filters. Camo 2 also brings support for 4K webcams and dedicated cameras. You can read more about this update on our blog.

- Feature Camo Studio now works with all cameras! You can now use Camo Studio with any camera you can connect to your Mac, including built-in cameras, webcams, DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, action cams, and iPhones connected with Continuity Camera.
- Feature Portrait mode has been overhauled on iOS and is also now available for all cameras. It can also now be used in combination with AR modes.
- Feature Spotlight mode ensures you stand out in your shot, brightening you up against the background.
- Feature Privacy blur lets you hide what’s in shot behind you, removing the need for jarring video-conferencing background removal.
- Feature Replace mode enables you to substitute your background scene with a replacement backdrop or a virtual greenscreen.
- Feature Dynamic face tracking with auto framing, with and without zoom. This is powered by a new physics engine, bringing face tracking which is smooth and cinematic, without the jerkiness or dizzying movements that other face tracking solutions introduce.
- Feature We've added native LUT support to Camo. These are cinematic filters which enable film-like treatments to your video. We've included a pack of 18 thoughtfully created presets.
- Feature To ensure it’s always providing perfectly smooth video Camo Studio now detects any situations where your camera fails to deliver at the requested frame rate, and will show a warning with suggestions on how to fix things.
- Feature We've added a beautiful new vignette overlay to the pack of built in overlays.
- Feature Centre stage controls, Camo Studio can now be used to toggle Centre Stage on the Studio Display, iPhones using Continuity Camera, and supported iPads.

- Improvement We've re-worked our menu bar icon, to make it easier to tell if Camo's video is being used or if there is anything which needs your attention.
- Improvement We've made significant improvements to Camo's performance when using overlays on iPhone.
