One of our favorite iPhone photo apps now works on Apple Watch

If you’re a mobile photographer then you might already be using FiLMiC Firstlight – a camera app from the makers of the FiLMiC Pro video app. If not, there’s never been a better time to start, as it’s just got even better – especially if you have an Apple Watch.

That’s because version 1.3 of FiLMiC Firstlight has now launched, and the headline feature is support for the Apple Watch. This is through a companion app that lets you take photos directly from your wrist.

So in other words it’s a remote shutter control, meaning you can line a shot up on your phone and then use your Apple Watch to snap the picture, which you might want to do if for example you intend to be in the shot and some distance away from your phone, or if you just don’t want to risk camera shake from tapping the phone.

As well as that, the version 1.3 update brings new features to both the iOS and Android versions of the Firstlight app. These include a new film simulation category called Pioneers, which adds four new film simulations to the app, based on various early color film formulations.
