Sound simple? That&rsquo;s because it is.&nbsp;</p> <p>One advantage over Vine, though, is that it autofocuses well. This means that you don&rsquo;t need to keep tapping on the screen to get the camera to focus - Vine, on the other hand, can get seriously frustrating when one six second video takes five attempts to get right.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>:<strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/icheapskate-25-best-free-apps-iphone-and-ipad/feature">iCheapskate - the best free iPhone and iPad apps&nbsp;</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Surf&#039;s up " alt="App of the week: Cinamatic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Whats%20New.jpg?1407201076" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FILTERS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Built into the app are a variety of free filters - seven to be precise - from &lsquo;Darwin&rsquo; which gives an effect like an old school projector filter, to &rsquo;Bennett&rsquo; which creates saturated colors and has a blurred vignette effect.</p> <p>If you don&rsquo;t like those available, you can buy more in the &lsquo;Cinamatic Shop&rsquo; with previews to make sure you like what you are buying.</p> <p>If you want even more filter control, you can pay &pound;1.49 to get the &lsquo;Pro&rsquo; features, which allow you to edit the contrast, saturation, and brightness levels.&nbsp;And if you&rsquo;re prepared to cough up that extra money, you can also add music, edit clips (such as combining multiple clips into one and rearranging the clips you&rsquo;ve shot), as well as importing videos from your camera roll.</p> <p>The option to edit the clip later could be very handy especially if you start filming spur of the moment.

Instead, the app is designed to help you create good-looking videos, which you can then easily upload to Instagram, Vine, or Facebook at the click of a button, once you have finished editing them.&nbsp;</p> <p>The company took three years to create the app, because, as Hipstamatic founder Lucas Buick says, &quot;color grading footage isn&#39;t enough&quot;. This means that the processing engine creates custom effects for each clip, depending on the length and material filmed, which its rivals don&#39;t.</p> <p>The questions is: are loyal Instagrammers going to download a new app over using the recently introduced filter? It&rsquo;s a similar story with Vine.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re using the app for Vine, Cinamatic isn&#39;t going to get round the strict six second rule. If you do try to upload videos that are longer then this, you&#39;re warned that the video will be trimmed to the first &lsquo;6.5&rsquo; seconds. A better option would be to let you choose which six seconds of your clip you want to upload.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/vine/review">Vine review</a>&nbsp;</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Easy sharing " alt="App of the week: Cinamatic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Social%20Networking.jpg?1407201076" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> CINAMATIC Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>With a simple, effective design, Cinamatic offers a free way to record and tweak your smartphone videos which end up looking rather good. &nbsp;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re prepared to pay S$2.58 for the &lsquo;Pro&rsquo; features then this app really stands out from the rest and it&#39;s a quicker way to shoot Vines than the official app itself.

The 21.5in and 27in models were introduced in late 2012 and early 2013 respectively. Some of you might ask about <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-introduces-cheaper-new-entry-level-imac/news">the iMac launched in June</a>, we&#39;d say that&rsquo;s just a cheaper and more basic alternative which some may call a downgrade.</p> <p>So the new iMac, which is listed to be 27in, will most likely just have its quad-core 3.2 GHz Intel i5 with 1 TB of storage and 8 GB of RAM internals tweaked.
