“The Blackmagic Camera app for iPhone has been incredibly popular since it was launched last year. We are excited to be able to give customers with Samsung Galaxy or Google Pixel phones the same controls for shooting digital film as our professional cameras,” said Petty.

Blackmagic Camera app released for Android devices

The Verge, citing sources familiar with the matter, reported about the only pitfall of the Blackmagic Camera app for Android devices, stating that the app can “be used on phones running Android 13 or later.”

Moreover, another fact which might fray seekers' nerves, or might as well discourage them, is that the Blackmagic Camera app is exclusively available for Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S24, Google Pixel 7, Pixel 8 lineups.

Pre-existing camera apps in iOS and Android devices are solely aimed at making photography and videography more convenient with the help of user-friendly interfaces and automation, whereas third-party apps, accessible in abundance on the internet, with additional functionalities for professional photographers and videographers, mostly come for a cost.

However, Blackmagic Camera app by Blackmagic Design has been rolled out, although for select mobile phones running on a specific Android operating system update, free of cost.
