Gota say, looks good. I've always said that in the future all that one will need is an iPhone or some sort of phone... and a way to capture audio. Imagine 5 yrs from now with how it's going to be.

Funny, these shots don't ***look*** handheld!

All you need is an iPhone. Oops, and a tripod. Oh, don't forget you'll need to figure out sound too!

;-)

I should try hooking up a mixer to an iPhone, I think I have the adapters sitting around. How to stick it to a tripod?

I have an iPhone 6s Plus. For fun, I made a "tripod mount"… just a 3" angle iron with a 1/4" nut to attach it to the tripod. I used a piece of duct tape to attach the phone to the angle iron. Cost: $0.

Didn't shoot any video that way, but it did a fantastic job of taking panoramas. Looked really comical on my Miller DS-10...

Despite having shot many semi-pro and consumer camcorders and DSLRs, I'm still amazed by the quality of the current iPhones. And most of all the built-in 5.5 inch monitor.

Many thanks for watching and commenting Simon.

This project was actually shot using the Manfrotto 560B fluid monopod, and Shoulderpod S1.

Thanks for watching Seth.

I was trying to keep my tongue-in-cheek in my comments. If I'd read more closely I would have seen your production notes, but I did enjoy the clip.

We're in the beginning or middle of some sort of evolution to smartphones/tablets in personal film-making. I'll be looking at some footage on Monday, the shooter tells me some was shot on a Panasonic HMC-150, and some on iPad; she prefers the look of the iPad! We'll see how I can help her match them in Premiere.

In all seriousness, I'm ready to use any small camera that looks good, but have less patience with shaky handheld footage with crappy indirect sound.

I'm serious about trying a mixer connection to iPhone... I have a little 3.5mm TRRS-male to two 3.5mm TRS-female adapter that I use for mic/phones connections on a Macbook, which ought to work equally well into a phone.

I also note that a very reputable local film workshop organization is offering two courses on iFilmmaking!
