iPhone 6 and 6+

I saw a blurb where it said these guys can do video at 120fps and 240fps.

I'd like to see some of that footage on a bigger sized screen.

It really is amazing at the advances in tech we've had in recent years. These higher end kinds of features are getting pushed down to the consumer at a fast rate.

I mean, the only other camera I know of that can shoot at those rates is the FS700 and it's abot $8,000.

There may be others, but I'm not aware of them....

** EDIT ** - Just saw it's at 720p, not 1080p

That 240fps frame rate is pretty amazing, especially for a phone, and I noticed that the 6+ also has optical image stabilization. I hope the video quality doesn't disappoint.

Re: iPhone 6 and 6+

But no 4K ... all the other flagship phones have it now. I would argue that in a consumer device 4K is more important that a higher frame rate - memories will be documented in a higher resolution, while slow-motion videos are a specialty tool.

I recently saw a skateboarding clip shot in 120fps (iPhone) and edited with simple timeline adding of clips. Needles to say, watching a 3 minute clip of 120fps played at 30fps made me want to kill myself. And lets not kid ourselves that the slow-motion footage from an iPhone will be used for anything serious.

Re: iPhone 6 and 6+

David, do the new iPhones do 1080/120p? That's pretty amazing aside from the 720/240p? What's good having the 1080/60 then?

Having 4K resolution would be practical only if low light capability was acceptable, which in the current crop of consumer video cameras, is not. With the ultra-tiny 4K sensors in some cell phones, you'd have trouble getting a decent image in bright sunlight, let alone indoors.
I'd much rather have a lower resolution sensor with larger pixels, like the new iPhone 6 & 6+ and get quality video instead of grainy noise with no dynamic range.

Re: iPhone 6 and 6+

The 4K footage from the Samsung phones was not that bad.

Re: iPhone 6 and 6+

I may have been incorrect on the 1080p120fps - it may do 1080p60fps, but then in 720p you have a choice of 120fps or 240 fps. Details will soon be made clear. And, it uses a new codec from Apple, so it will be interesting to see what that is. For hobbyist stuff I do actually mix iPhone 5S 720p120fps with 720p60fps footage from my Canon XF100.

If no one is doing "serious" video on a phone anyway (although there are some pretty impressive exceptions to that statement), I'd much rather experiment with slow motion than with 4K. And I agree that an unbroken shot of 3 minutes of super slow motion is not what I would choose in an edit, even if it was shot on an FS700 :-)

Other phones? To each his own, and I don't care what anyone else uses. But, for those millions of us who would never consider buying any phone but an iPhone (for zillions of non-camera-related reasons), what other phones offer is irrelevant.
