Videographer goes to Yellowstone with the iPhone 7 Plus in hand, the resulting video is pretty impressive
So, we've all seen these “Shot on iPhone” pictures and videos, which Apple likes to endorse and put on its own website. But what we have here is, as far as we can tell, nothing but a fan project by photographer Harshit Vora, which is why it's an interesting piece of media.

So, Mr. Vora visited Yellowstone earlier this Summer and decided to leave his mirrorless camera behind, taking a gamble with his iPhone 7 Plus. With the super-powerful app Filmic, some color grading, and nice editing, he got a really, really nice video. Want to do the same? Here are some really cool cinematic apps and Filmic alternatives for you!

Now, some shakiness and some hesitation in focus and exposure can be seen in some shots. We suppose this is only indicative of the fact that the phone was held in hand for many of these, and we still find the final result quite impressive. What do you think?

I found editing too intrusive, so much detail is lost so dark where it's not needed. Apart from that footage is just Ok. You Paul have no idea what is impressive videography.

He wouldn't capture anything with S8 because of it's lag and display glare. HTC U11 yes I aprove.

Awwww. Someone still stinging from the S8 being the best rated phone there is (and a better rated camera than the iPhone)

In fact HTC U11 has some frame resampling issues in video unless they fixed that in lasts updates.

It wouldn't be better because then you would suffer from dropped frames and micro blocking. Haven't had a Samsung phone that hasn't suffered from those issues.

You mean macroblocking. Which it doesn't in 1080p. Haven't seen dropped frames in my recordings either.

In 4K it sure does. It has on my S7, Note 5, S7 Edge, Note 7, and on my S8+.

He wants to get Apple's attention. Nothing beats DSLR for obvious reasons.

Hi Everyone,

I am Hars**t who posted this video. First of all it's such an honor for to get recognition like this. I really appreciate feedback listed in comment. It does help a lot in improvising.

Now a days smartphones are really powerful, you can get professional looking results right from mobile. Of course it can never beat DSLR or mirrorless, but point is we already have powerful enough devices in our pocket that anyone can start shooting without making $$$ investment in big cameras.

This was my first time to do cinematography from a mobile, I am planning on shooting more videos so stay tuned, its only going to get better :)

I have used Filmic Pro, Stock camera app, zhiyun smooth q to film this.

I like the iphone and I think the iphone 7 has great photo quality; however, this video does not look "impressive" by any means. its dark in some area, I See some blurred articles. It could be due to the editing though.
