This was one of my early forays into iPhone video. The image is better than video cameras just a few years before but the problem is audio. The fix is a mic, adaptor.
They are available for XLRs as well. Seems we are moving from a “backpack journalism” era to a “back pocket” one. Be it with a Padcaster or the iphone already in your pocket, you can take video , edit it on the spot an upload it to the web in short order. Gamechanger!
