I’ve had the opportunity to test Nizo over the weekend, and I think it’s a cool app that makes it easy to shoot and edit videos. It offers nine presets you can use in real time to alter the tones and colors of your video. My favorite is KC1. Each preset also adds a bit of film grain for that old-age cinematic look. Once you’re done shooting, you can edit your video with simple drag and drop. Trim, duplicate, and reorder clips, or move a clip to a different video; add and trim music from your library, or delete a clip by flicking it away. Nizo offers: Auto or Manual modes: ISO, Shutter Angle, WB; 4K video recording at 24 fps or 60 fps; 1080p at 24 fps or 120 fps slow-motion; Toggle wide-angle or telephoto lens; Shoot natural or with a cinematic preset; and 16:9 ratio at 24 fps for motion picture quality. App Store: US$4.99
