iPhone 6 in Disneyland

The Happiest Place on Earth at 240fps

The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been out for a few weeks now. Like many of you we were eagerly awaiting the announcement so we could upgrade to this shiny new toy. One thing I didn’t expect to hear during the Apple keynote was this new slow-motion feature. I thought to myself… “hwhaaaa? 240fps in a iPhone? I’ll believe it when I see it”.

A while ago Erin and I booked our annual fall trip to Disneyland to detox a bit after an amazing/super busy summer. In case you didn’t know we’re kind of crazy when it comes to Disneyland (yes we are those people). So after we received our new iPhones we thought “what better way to test out this thing than in Disneyland?”. So away we went.

Now I could go through a bunch of specs and features about the phone/camera but I’d rather let the film do the talking. Yes it’s only 720p and yes 240fps is a bad idea in low light, but it’s a flipping phone! We were sincerely stunned at the results while shooting and editing this piece. One thing is for sure, this easily replaces any point and shoot video camera for us. Hands down. Take a look at the film below…

It’s pretty amazing that this iPhone, something that is with us wherever we go, allows us to be creative and produce something like this at anytime. To think that millions of people have a device in their pocket that can shoot this kind of footage is mind boggling. It’s exciting to see what technology can do in the right hands and we are so curious and excited to see how this technology will improve in the future.

If you have any questions about how the film was put together, feel free to leave a comment below.
