Shot & Edited on an iPhone 6S Plus – plus details of apps used to create footage

Below is a one minute 47 second video, filmed and totally edited on the iPhone 6S Plus. 

4 apps in total were used to record and edit this footage. First up the default camera app on the iPhone was used. Before using the camera app, I went into the iPhone’s main settings app, Photos & Camera and changed the video setting to 4K at 30 frames per second. 1 minute of 4K video needs 375mb of memory. 

Whilst walking towards Foggintor Quarry which is located in Princetown, Dartmoor, Devon, UK, I used the following camera modes – photo, burst, video and panarama. The weather conditions were walking with a wind chill of -4°C. 

Below is one of the panarama shots.

When I got home, I viewed all the photo photos. I deleted the unwanted burst shots and the odd dodgy photo. I then used the Photos app and cropped a few shots as required. Then I used an app called Snap Still which takes video and allows you to extract photo stills. With 4K video, each photo extracted is at 8mp. I like Snap Still as it scans your video and highlights the best frames to save. Tap on the highlighted frame(s) and save to your camera roll. Below is a 8mp extracted photo from 4K video.

Finally, I use iMovie on iOS to combine everything together and create the video below. Using iMovie on iOS you can upload directly to YouTube and at the maximum 4K resolution. Currently, this is the only way from an iPhone to upload to YouTube in 4K. 

So now enjoy the spectacular views en route to Foggintor Quarry along with my Labradors , George, Fury and Tiggy.

  1. Nice one Gavin……. This is one of the reasons I have kept my iPhone 6s Plus and the 6 Plus before that, whilst come and gone have been several Android phones.
    It may not take the best shot at times but the whole package brings it all together.

  2. I’ve previously used Google photos app to create similar videos on Android phones, however I’ve not ventured so far on the iPhone but I’ll give this a try
