Ultrakam is a Seven Dollar App That Turns Your iPhone into a Movie Grade Camera
Ultrakam is a seven dollar iTunes app. I don’t need to list to you the number, let alone variety, of chocolate I could acquire for that kind of money. But to its credit, Ultrakam lets you shoot video at 24 frames per second.

I understand your rear mounted camera probably lets you take video at 60fps, but this is significant. 24fps is the cinematic standard. Any higher and it starts to look, well, amateur.

Ultrakam doesn’t just lower the frame-rate by 36 in every second, it also ups the resolution to well beyond Full HD. Offering 2K HD recording at an rather handsome 2240 x 1672, Ultrakam converts your footage to a resolution 70% higher than 1920 x 1080.

Bells and whistles include High-Speed-Frame-Rate-Recording to the tune of 120fps. If this sounds excessive, think how useful it’ll be for slow motion. There’s also a time lapse mode which captures one solitary frame every second and later plays it back at full speed. And for the legit videophile, Ultrakam’s high quality H.264 recording creates video files of 3GB per minute.

Although Ultrakam does work with older models, for the best features, you’ll need an iPhone 5S. Ultrakam App costs $6.99 and is available now on iTunes.
