You’re a gifted content creator, shooting great stills and compelling video with your iPhone. But for complete creative control, some rely on separate camera apps for each discipline.

Moment, the maker of premium quality lens attachment for both, now has an all-in-one program app making switching from stills to video quick and seamless.

A beefed up Pro Camera app hits the App Store today, offering full manual control and with features making it difficult to have a bad shoot.

The iPhone’s camera app allows the user to switch from stills or video with a single touch but offers very little in the way of manually controlling the look in the viewfinder.

Moment’s Pro Camera now includes features like Zebra Stripes, which flash in the viewfinder to show areas of the frame that are either over- or under-exposed. There is also Focus Peaking for shooters and filmmakers who like to manually focus their iPhone, revealing a highlighted edge with the subject is sharp.

In video, Pro Camera gives the shooter tools to adjust color profiles, resolution, frame and bit and a dual channel audiometer.

Android shooters will be able to capture RAW and JPG files, split focus dial in video color, balance and exposure with a live RGB histogram.

The iOS app now switches from free to a $5.99 download in the App Store. For a limited time, Moment is offering 15 percent off in its online shop, which carries shooting gear from more than 20 different brands, to anyone who downloads the Camera Pro app.
