iPhone HD Videography Tips

– Slo-mo: iPhone 5s lets you capture video at 120 frames per second in 720p, and when you’re done, you can select the portion you want to slow down and play clips back at quarter speed. Slow-motion video cranks up the drama and, sometimes, the humour.

– Live video zoom: Zoom in on your subject —up to 3x — as you’re recording with live video zoom – so you can put the emphasis right where you want it.

– True Tone flash: The same True Tone flash that helps you capture vibrant colours for your photos can also be used while you’re recording videos. True Tone flash on iPhone 5s, which determines just the right balance of ambient light versus flash for more natural-looking skin tones. The result is a beautiful shot with more true-to-life colours.

– Find natural lighting and eliminate shadows, set the Auto Focus and Auto Exposure on your iPhone by pressing and holding anywhere you want on the video.

– Take control of the camera to get a stable shot, use both hands on your iPhone to cancel out jittery hands.
