1. We currently have a Kickstarter for a brand new Short Film Concept using the iPhone 6 again: kickstarter.com/projects/165580313/romance-in-nyc-shot-entirely-on-the-iphone
    Please share it with your friends and back us if you can!


    My name is Tristan Pope and I am a dance/fashion photographer. I mix Glamour and Fashion with the Strength and Movement of dance. I find the dance world to be invigorating, a refreshing way to show off that perfect clothing line or product, all while pushing the human body to the limit and focusing on strong passion. You can view my work at the link above or tristanpope.com.

    When I first heard about the 240 frames per second on the iPhone 6, I knew I had to get it. I make a series of behind the scenes short videos for my Photography(viewable here: tristanpope.com/portfolio/behind-the-scenes/) Using just the 60 frames per second, I can capture some amazing moments during the photoshoots I do with dancers from all over NYC. Well the idea that I could slow down some of the beautiful and powerful dance moves I have been shooting, I couldn’t pass up on this opportunity.

    On Sunday, when I picked up my iPhone 6, I immediately put out a call to everyone I had worked with before and those who might be able to put a shout out for me as well (thank you Luis Pons). Within hours I had 18 dancers booked for Monday - Thursday. This was going to be a long week.

    I looked through my camera gear and found my old iPhone 4S and 5S tripod adapter… needless to say, the new iPhone 6 didn’t fit, so I ended up tearing it apart and rigging my iPhone 6 with rubber bands and luck. Equipped with my tripod, an Anker battery pack(can charge my iPhone 8 times from 0 before it runs out of juice!), my laptop, duct tape(always carry duct tape), and a protective pouch(no one had any cases in stock) for my iPhone 6 I was ready to begin!

    For slow motion I used Apple’s stock camera app and for timelapse I used Hyperlapse by instagram. The built in image stabilization made it ideal for quick shots without having to worry about keeping my hands still. If only the stock camera app could utilize this same technology to give the iPhone 6 the same stabilization as the 6 +. You may wonder why I didn’t just get the 6 plus… well, I enjoy my skinny jeans and have girlishly small hands, just ask my piano teacher from middle school.(Although they are rather soft…) Regardless the screen was the perfect size for viewing.

  3. All shot on the Apple iPhone 6+

    I spent the first weekend with my new iPhone 6+ trying out the timelapse, slow motion and hyper lapse functions of the phone in the beautiful Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. I’m an owner at a video production company in Portland, OR; and as someone who uses a camera in all sorts of ways about 6 days a week- playing with the iPhone 6+ made me feel like an 6 yr old with a magic toy. The ease of use paired with very powerful in-phone functions is so well knit together that it feels like cheating going from shooting 240 fps to timelapse to stabilized video so easily. I was running around shooting like I just got my first camera.

    Is the iPhone 6+ amazing? YES. Would I bring it to a job shooting for a client? No. It will shoot 240fps, but it degrades and is not what you’d want full size in a polished video. The in-camera stabilizer in the Instagram Hyperlapse app is AMAZING, but it exports final video in 720 not 1080. Timelapse looks great when the conditions are stable, but changing light has the phone struggling to smoothly change exposures following the light. So yes, it’s jaw-dropping awesome what’s packed in this big phone, and we will probably see some amazing footage and videos shot soley on the new iPhones, but I don’t feel a threat to my job security….yet. The quality needed for professional work is not there…. yet. Rather than a threat, I think this will be an asset to the industry to inspire and find those in our populations that should be behind a high-end camera making beautiful work.

    If you’re a professional shooter and feeling a bit burnt out on the demands of always producing content, meeting demands of a client, and fulfilling the taxing demands of high end production- a weekend in a beautiful place with friends and the iPhone 6+ in your pocket (or purse/murse if pockets are not jumbo sized) might be the ticket to re-sparking that joy of shooting. This thing is just so much damn fun.
