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. 

Filming 4K on the iPhone 6S Plus

So you have an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus. 


With a tripod and a few extra pieces you can start to get creative. Attached to the tripod is TARION Model TR-S120 Track Slider Stabilizer which in turn has the ShoulderPod S1 Smartphone Grip and R1 Pro.

On the Shoulderpod R1 Pro is the Sony QX10 and HTC Re used for a few stills. The below video shows a shot of the church, taken on the iPhone 6S Plus, HTC Re and Sony QX10. Each photo is labelled. Finally the iPhone 6S Plus is used to film in 4K using the slider for effect.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus – A variety of camera footage demonstrating the magic of the 12mp camera!

Apple made a big point at just how good its new 12mp sensor was on the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. I have taken a variety of footage, both video, photos and timelapse and below is a selection of what was possible.

Please allow a few minutess for all the photos to appear if they do not appear straight away. Click on all footage to gain access to the original version.

Timelapse Mode – Impressive as taken on a windy day too which meant iPhone 6S Plus was moving on tripod.

LG G4 – The Review updated plus All 15 Posts – Updated



Since my review of the LG G4, I have included several other posts. All the links are noted below. I have also included a link to the special LG G4 Flickr album set. Once thing I have noticed with the G4 is its overnight battery strength which has been consistent. Generally on a 6 hours period overnight the battery drops from 100% to 98%, just a mere 2%. Its screen on time for a charge is 4 to 4.5 hours.

Anyway here are all the links to all the posts. The action shots are a must view post. Using burst mode I was able to snap some amazing motion shots. Also worth noting is the burst mode shots were 7.9mb in file size over 3 times the size of a burst shot from the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
