About Focos

Developer Description

Focos is a big step into the future of computational photography and light-field camera, bringing DSLR-like photography to your dual-camera iPhone, with beautiful bokeh effects usually achievable only with professional large aperture cameras. With the technology of computational photography, you can make unlimited changes to your photos, focus after the fact, change the aperture repeatedly, and add multiple lights in 3D space, exceeding the limits of any editing tools you’ve known before. The creative potential unleashed by Focos is endless. MAIN FEATURES - Take photos with shallow depth of field, without manually painting or making selections. - True 3D imaging. - Simulate large apertures to create real bokeh effects normally only possible with DSLR cameras and expensive lenses. - Import existing portrait photos and customize the bokeh effect. - Re-focus portrait photos that have already been taken, with a simple tap. - Choose from various simulated aperture diaphragms to generate different bokeh spot effects. - Professional options to simulate lens characteristics, such as creamy, bilinear, swirly, and reflex effects, and more. - Visualise the depth of areas within your portrait photos in a 3D view, and intuitively add depth filters. - Add multiple lights in a 3D space, and adjust the color, brightness and so on for each light. - Intuitive and easy to use, with built-in video tutorials. - An essential tool for iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (dual lens devices). Taking portrait photos is not possible on devices that lack dual cameras. It is therefore recommended that Focos is used on devices with dual cameras. All sample photos in screenshots and video previews were shot on an iPhone 7 Plus. Do you have questions or suggestions? Contact us via support @ focos . me.

App Reviews

  • Great app for next level iPhone photos

    By vichn
    4.5/5 Continuous mode is the bomb. I shoot a lot of pics with it for work and we do a lot of live action shots. Love how I can control what to focus on and blur. It does lag though, a few times I’ve had to force it to shut down just so I don’t miss an opportunity at a shot. A few things I would love on the app is to have the ability to easily switch between pictures when in the editing screen instead of tapping the back arrow then searching for the next image and selecting it. Takes too long. In addition, would love to have folder organization for the pictures already taken or have the pictures from the iPhone Favorite folder distinguished between other images that aren’t favorited. You know how Favorited images in the All Photos folder on iphones have a heart symbol? That’s what I want within the app. Right now it’s cumbersome when having to comb through the portrait images in the app to find the same ones I’ve already favorited on my iphone. Not sure if this is even possible, would love to have multiple focus and blur points in an image that can be fully adjustable. Sometimes there’s weird blurring and focusing on an image that can’t be fixed via the settings so it looks off and edited. All in all, great job with the app. Lifetime unlimited access price is worth it and a steal.
  • Wish It Would Work For Non Dual Camera Phones

    By Sech-nology
    So, I have a iPhone 7 but not the plus, so that’s why I’m giving this a 4 star. The reason why I’m giving it a four star is because of what I’ve seen so far and what this app is capable of and this app just determines photography’s future and makes it much easier and less expensive. But, I hope maybe you can just make a different app for non dual camera phones like this and maybe make it not able to focus more on the main thing of your photo or you can make an update on this app that allows for all non dual cameras and dual camera phones, ( iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and upcoming Apple phones, .etc), and then I will give this app a 5 stars, but I’m not saying this is a bad app looking for lots of money, it seems like a great app but I want this apps abilities to be available on non dual cameras too.
  • Awesome...but instructions?

    By Scorpiol13
    This app is amazing & unique in its ability to set a realistic and changeable depth of focus with specific bokeh fx as well as “special” novelty fx, in addition to lots of other variables that can be tweaked in different ways. I just have no clue what I am doing, especially as I make adjustments in the “effect” screen to “back bokeh” & “front bokeh” in a changeable 3-D image of my photo with perspective/angle that varies by degrees (?). I think it defaulted at 72 degrees? I have a 2 hour free trial of the pro-version, but unfortunately it will take me at least that long to experiment with the options. I wish the tutorials were explained better, because the action is too quick for me to understand what is happening, or what has changed. I will search online for tutorials that also explain each step as it is done. I can’t wait to learn how to effectively use all the options!!!
  • Great app

    By adorablebadass
    Great app if you already have a phone capable of portrait mode. I love the concept and execution. I do wish that it would be able to read depth data from portraits I didn’t take. It wouldnt let me edit any portraits I didn’t take. it says it can’t read the depth data which I’m guessing means there isn’t any so I don’t think it’s necessarily a problem with the app. EDIT/UPDATE: Thanks for your response. I understand how it works, I was just noting it doesn’t work with portraits not native to your device. Several times I tried to use my wife’s iPhone 8 to edit portraits from my iPhone X in Focos. I think when the photos get transferred between devices they lose their depth data, so I was letting people know not to expect to be able to edit portraits taken on devices that aren’t their own. Unless there is some way to transfer the depth data too. And yes it does only list portraits from your albums but it lists all portraits even those it cannot work with, which is frustrating but understandable because that is apparently not something the developer can control. Again, I still think this app is awesome and a great tool for editing portraits.
  • Fantastic App!

    By PeterPañda
    Such an unbelievable app! Great features and really easy to use. Some reviewers complained that they wanted instructions, but it’s basically a common sense application. Tap where you want it to focus and it will automatically blur the surrounding image. If you play around with a bit, it has some pretty neat stuff that it can do. Unfortunately, I can see Apple updating their camera app in the future to make this available for everyone. So download the app now while it was created by a company individually to get them recognized ;) It should also say in the information section that it only works for iPhone 7/8 Plus and X. It’s miss leading for those people.
  • Greatest app I have ever seen

    By Fkzd
    As one of the legions of photographers who hates to lug heavy equipment I always missed the option of shallow depth of field that DSLR lenses allow. Fix your own blur with mask options even in Photoshop never look quite right. 90% of shots taken with this app are outstanding (like all blur algorithms it can't blur hair properly but feh). Too bad it only works with dual cameras. I wish it had the option to edit pix made with other apps but I'm sure within the next few years a universal shallow depth of field will be attainable. Until then, no photographer of any kind should be without this.
  • The future of mobile photography, absolutely

    By DLunnster
    This app has it figured out! Congrats. Near perfect. Does it replace my Fuji x-pro-2 with my 85mm? No, but I don’t expect any smartphone and app to do that. What I want is “credible” mobile apps. This app is more than credible. It is superb. I purchased the “lifetime” license because I want to support this creative developer! Awesome. One nit...If there is any way to allow raw capture in the workflow, that would be superb! My hat is off to the developer here. Truly fantastic idea and implementation. The future starts today. Buy it and see the future of mobile photography.
  • Focos is a perfect app with only one way it could be better:

    By franzen_scott
    This app has to be the most important app on my phone now, being able to see the depth of the map of my photos and adjust the bokeh is so incredible. The only way it could be better is if it let us have the option to save the photo as a new photo, or rewrite on the existing photo. Other than that I can’t wait to use this app more. Definitely one of the best apps I’ve downloaded in a long time. A game changer for photographers that use their iPhone as their main camera.
  • So far so...perfect!

    By Murdock85
    Great app with much more potential than I realized. A must have for dual lenses iPhones This enhances your portrait mode pictures greatly. I am very impressed with this. I purchased the full version, but even the free version has much to offer. This app is like what the portrait mode was missing all along. Question for Dev: I might be missing something, but is there a clear or undo button? Update: Thanks for the response. I look forward to the next update and hope to see further advancements made on this app. Kudos and keep up the great work.
  • Excellent app!

    By Schmoopykitty
    This app does what I thought portrait mode was supposed to do and really optimizes the performance of the dual lens cameras. It would be even better with a couple minor tweaks: 1) the file saving could be a bit quicker, I miss shots while waiting for the save to complete. If we could continue to shoot while it saves that would be great. 2) I wish the switch from edit mode to continuous mode was not located directly next to the shoot button. I am always accidentally hitting it and switching it over to edit mode by accident.
