Why the iPhone 4S Video Camera Rocks!

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

A video shot on the iPhone 4S from Benjamin Dowie on Vimeo.

Reason #324 to purchase an iPhone 4S: mind blowing video quality.

Calling all directors! Was becoming the next Steven Spielberg your life long ambition? Here is yet another reason why you must purchase the iPhone 4S.

Just how good is the video camera on the iPhone 4S? If a short video from Benjamin Dowie is any indication, we’re going to chalk it up to “amazing.”

Dowie shot the footage just after getting his iPhone 4S and as he writes on Vimeo, “Couldn’t believe it came out of a phone.” Looking at the footage, we’re inclined to agree.

Dowie gives strong marks to the automatic stabilization, but what really caught our eye was the amazing depth of field. The DoF on my Panasonic GF-1 with a 20mm prime lens just barely outpaces the iPhone 4S — and that’s really saying something.

Of course, in the hands of a pro-shooter, any camera can produce good looking footage. Dowie, who runs Beanpole Productions in Australia, is a pro. Your own footage may not look quite as beautiful.

Still, it’s impressive to see just how much camera optics are improving. Phones have already replaced the day-to-day pocket camera for many users — with the death of the Flip and improvements to video sensors, phones could start to replace low-level video cameras too.

What do you think of this video? Are you considering replacing your video camera with an iPhone 4S? iHospital wants to hear from you in the comments below.

Is there anything this phone can’t do?

Oops - iPhone's a bit sensitive. Anyways, I've been shooting using the 4S 1080p and it's phenomenal. Crystal clear and sharp, good colors, decent focus. It's hard to believe you can shoot full HD on a phone where 10 years ago a 1080p camera would have set you back $25,000 at the very least. More manual control of course, but now post production is so advanced (FCPX!) that it pretty much makes up for in-camera lack of control.

The truth is it's nearly miraculous! Thanks Steve Jobs.
