I’ve been shooting a lot more with my iPhone and I’m pleasantly surprised at just how capable it’s become. With apps like Filmic Pro and Lapse It you can get some great content anytime, anywhere. It’s become so good that anyone could easily produce good looking content with an iPhone. All you really need is a steady hand and a little ingenuity. Originally this was supposed to be titled “Filming With An iPhone in 120fps” but I shot other things I wanted to include for fun. This isn’t meant to be some serious video (although there are some really beautiful iPhone films out there) I just wanted to show that the iPhone can be a capable capture device.
Now yes, I can get much better quality with a dedicated camera but that’s not the point. I just wanted to show that the iPhone’s camera is pretty capable for a smartphone. The shot of me walking with the iPhone on a Monopod was shot on an iPhone 6 using Filmic Pro with it’s cinematic stabilization feature turned on. The person who shot it had no real experience filming anything but I’d say it came out alright.
The vast majority of the footage was shot at 120 fps with the iPhone 5S and conformed to 23.976 or true slow motion and since it was 720p I kept that resolution and downscaled any 1080p or 4K clips that were shot with the iPhone 6S.
