iPhone Video Filming Tips

Matt’s Macintosh video describes equipment that can help you get more professional quality video from an iPhone:

  • Glif: iPhone 4 Tripod Mount & Stand: $20 on Amazon
  • Light kit: he seems to be using continuous lighting. Umbrella + directional light (reflecting off wall?).
  • Video app: FiLmiC Pro [App Store, $1.99]. It’s like Camera+ for video.
  • iMovie, comes with every Mac: use effects such as vignette and levels to bring attention to your subject matter.

What about the Ken Burns panning effect? It can be done real life with a mounted iPhone on rail.

Here’s an example of iPhone 4 video from ObamaPacman, without the additional equipment described by Matt. With the equipment it’ll look even better than this:
