My wife does nonprofit work, and I shoot videos for her various events. This was a service event where a bunch of students packed vegetable seeds to donate to central PA charities. Normally I would shoot on a Panasonic GH4 or a ZV-1 with a tripod and fluid head, but on this particular event, there was supposed to be a guy from the school shooting pics and video, so I didn’t bring my regular gear. He showed up, took a couple of pics, then left, so I ended up shooting with my new iPhone 13 Pro Max, handheld. Since the phone is so new, I accidentally shot most of it at 1920 x 1440 square resolution. That was because I had it in photo mode and was long pressing the volume down button to shoot video. I just cropped the top and bottoms, and in a couple of places I key framed in tilts as I edited. The point being that it would have looked even better in the proper video 4K mode. None-the-less, it still looks very good. I transferred the footage to my iPad Pro using a thumb drive with lightning and USB C connectors. Anyway, here is the video. I am amazed at the quality of this phone’s cameras!

Very nice images. 8-)

Shooting in a taller format to reframe later is one of my life-hacks! I often shoot in 4:3 and adjust later on the timeline.

You might even miss this extra adjustability if you start to shoot wide for the next project!

In fact, when I shoot 360, I find myself choosing to reframe my footage in 4:3 instead of wide. The reason being that I can centre the horizon, keeping the image from looking so distorted. Then when it's on the timeline I can move the horizon level up or down for a nicer composition.

I did make use of the square framing: both to capture stills and to do some keyframed tilts. I uprezzed the 1920x1440 still snapshots to 4 megapixel with Pixelmator Photo, which is a wonderful RAW and regular photo editor for anyone looking for one. The healing function of that app is particularly good.

There were a couple of clips that I used that were actually just the tiny videos that iPhones shoots automatically when you shoot a “Live Photo”. I always thought that this was a silly feature, but they turned out to be handy.

That’s a very very nice smooth video. Well done. The only thing I’d say is I’d feel more into it if it had audio from the scenes, not just music.

There really wasn’t any good audio to capture: just loud gymnasium noise.

I did order a SmallRig iPhone cage though, so that I can mount a directional mic on it in the future when there might be audio worthy of capture.

I have a couple of Rode Video Micros and a pair of Rode Wireless Go mics. The wireless ones are Ok to hide inside a jacket or clipped inside a buttoned shirt. Even discreetly placed near the talent on a surface. The battery time is a good few hours.

The official cable to attach either to a phone is overpriced and you still need a dongle.

I have two InstaMic Pro Plus wireless mics on order. This should avoid having a wireless receiver on the rigged iPhone since it uses a combination of bluetooth and internal recording.

For a mounted mic I am planning on using a Shure MV88+ that I already have. That will avoid the dongle and give me the choice of several pickup patterns.

We’ll see. I imagine it will take some experimentation before I get it right.

:D Not quite what you want but I was inspired to write a separate post on recording audio with the Apple Watch

This is the flash drive:

I used the iPhone stabilization plus a little help from the new LumaFusion stabilization. It was almost there out of the camera. I was surprised at how smooth it came out.
