You call the shots with multi-camera app for iPhone

The CollabraCam is a very handy app for smart moviemakers looking to shoot multi-camera video – without the cost of expensive equipment, software and loads of cables trailing everywhere.

The app, recently updated to run natively on all of Apple’s iOS devices (including both iPads), will allow mobile moviemakers the option of live-editing workflow from four different devices.

Once the app is downloaded to the devices and connected via a local wireless network, the ‘director’ will be able to choose shots and angles from the four cameras, all in real-time.

The app is currently selling for $4.99 from the app store.

Owners of the original iPad will only be able to ’direct’ a project as their device does not have a camera.

Here’s what the developer’s release notes say: ‘You and your crew will produce exciting, dynamic videos with minimal post-production. As the director you are in charge. Enter a title and optional copyright for automatically generated credits. Wirelessly connect with up to four iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad camera operators who also have CollabraCam over local Wi-Fi. Monitor the live-streaming cameras and choose the best shots to edit your video in real-time. Select a camera to put on standby to prepare for the next shot. Silently direct your camera operators to pan a shot, dolly in for a close-up and more’.

Pretty amazing stuff, if anyone has used this app I would be interested in hearing your comments. See a mini-tutorial below:
