The iPhone has had 4K video recording since the iPhone 6s and with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus both having optical image stabilization and better lenses the quality of video that can be recorded is truly stunning.
YouTuber user, Ron8it, has posted what he’s calling the “iPhone 7 Plus Ultimate 4K Experience.” The video consists of various shots taken with the iPhone 7 Plus along with the Procam 4 app and a pre-production Olloclip 30x lens.
Here’s how Ron8it describes it:
I traveled coast to coast in the span of 3 days and only used an iPhone 7 Plus to take every shot. I used the Procam 4 app and a pre-production Olloclip 30x lens attachment. I wasn’t that close to those bears. Also Attached the iPhone 7 Plus to a DJI Phantom 4 with a Hex4 Gimbal. No Color correction used. I just added a letterbox in post.
4K video is not the default option for recording on either the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, likely because of requires storage it needs when compared to 1080P video. That said, the quality of video coming out of a smartphone camera is truly mind blowing. Just a few years ago, I never would have thought we’d see this type of footage coming out of a smartphone. I can only imagine how much better it’s going to get with time.
