Shooting on an iPhone – Pros and Cons

Just done some mind mapping to go through all the advantages and disadvantages of shooting on an iPhone, before I start the production.

To conclude, it seems to be a fair balance between the pros and cons. I think I’ll be able to pull off a decent video using an iPhone. The disadvantage points, to me, don’t seem to be that much of an issue. If anything, I feel I could easily work around them. With the advantage points, they seem to suggest that what I could produce could be something that is visually different.

A new video from Digitalrev with Presenter, Kai Wong. In this video he is reviewing the new iPhone 4S and discusses it’s impact it’s having on consumer compact cameras.

The iPhone 4S is pretty much a perfected iPhone 4. The antenna system has been tweaked to resolve the dreaded atennagate, which plagued many iPhone 4 models. Secondly, the new A5 chip, which powers the iPad 2 is now built into the 4S; therefore users get that extra performance boost when using applications. Lastly, the new camera system now allows users to snap up 8 megapixels photos and shoot full 1080p HD video at 30fps accompanied with a nice image stabilisation feature.

Kai nails the crucial key point about the difference between compact cameras and the iPhone 4/4S camera and that is you can share your photos and videos on a global or personal scale on the iPhone. Compact cameras changed the way we take daily photos, but the iPhone will now follow on from that and push people into the way we use photos and videos as a way of communicating.
