As with any iPhone release there is a slew of advertising and blogging about the strengths and weaknesses of the latest model. Typically the apple cultists praise everything about the new phone and covet it enough to shell out big bucks for the latest model. Then you get the Galaxy Samsung Whatever Whatever users who claim that their tech is superior because X, Y, and Z. Well it seem that the iPhone 6 is taking high quality film making to the masses without much ado.
Phone 6 offers is what Apple’s Phil Schiller called “technology used by high-end DSLRs” during yesterday’s product announcement. Coupled with the ability to grab 1080p high-definition clips at 60 frames per second, take 240-fps slow-motion shots, provide cinematic video stabilization, and offer up to 128 gigabytes of storage, there’s more than enough oomph in the iPhone 6 for a few takes. It’s the kind of power that could, like other developments in filmmaking technology, give rise to a whole new style of moviemaking.
Not that the world has any shortage of amateur filmmakers and the void needs to be filled. However, if you're going to do something, you might as well do it right. Hell, there's even an iPhone Film Festival so if you're going to start shooting, shoot for the stars.
