How the iPhone is Changing Modern Videography

first_imgIf you think you need a stabilizer or drone to pull of great footage with an iPhone, then just take a look at this video from Nicolas Vuignier. Using an iPhone 6 attached to a string rig he built himself, Vuignier took to the ski slope to create this Centriphone video. Have you put any thought into shooting a film on an iPhone? Have any experience using one on set? Let us know in the comments below. Last year, a Swiss TV station switched the whole staff to shooting on iPhones with selfie sticks. In September, RYOT news released this piece on a citizen living in the slums of Haiti. It was also shot on the iPhone 6s Plus.RYOT also released a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot, giving a glimpse at the camera cage that allowed them to use SLR lenses with the iPhone. They also used a variety of stabilizers, and even attached the iPhone to a DJI Phantom drone. Apple knows how great the iPhone 6 camera is, which is why they’ve featured many of the best videos shot by regular users. As with the Dark Waves music video, using an underwater case can give you stunning images.The iPhone even captures quality video at high speeds.You can even simply setup an iPhone to capture a quick timelapse.One of the best parts of always having the camera on you is the ability to pull the iPhone out of your pocket when you see something amazing happening around you.But perhaps the most spectacular feature is the iPhone’s slow-motion capability — which has captured so much great material. It’s been nearly 10 years since the iPhone first hit shelves. The drastic improvements to the device’s camera are nothing short of remarkable.Top image via RYOTAs camera manufacturers struggle to bring higher video resolution and dynamic range to their gear, Apple has seemingly been pushing micro-camera technology to extraordinary lengths. And they aren’t alone… Samsung and other manufacturers have been bringing 4K to cell phones for years.Now that you have these insane resolutions in your pocket, it’s easy to see how you can use an iPhone on set. We’ve covered turning old iPhones into wireless microphones, and even commercials shot on the iPhone. The camera has practical uses as a crash cam or additional camera on set, but what about productions using only the iPhone?The film Tangerine made headlines at Sundance, as the film was shot using three iPhone 5s cameras. The independent feature even reached a limited release in theaters. The entire film was produced with the iPhones, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve.Of course, Tangerine is far from the only film to use iPhones. There’s an entire film festival solely dedicated to featuring movies shot on the iPhone.Countless music videos have been shot on iPhones. This beautiful music video for Dark Waves by Robot Koch and Delhia de France was shot on the iPhone 6s Plus.last_img read more

Kohli should bat at No.4 slot

first_imgIndia’s build-up for the ICC World Cup began in an exciting manner at home on Saturday as the seasoned pair of Kedar Jadhav and Mahendra Singh Dhoni stitched together an unbeaten 141-run partnership in Hyderabad against Australia.For those who may have got a bit bored repeatedly watching India and Australia compete on the cricket field, there is plenty at stake in the current series.Having lost both the T20 internationals last week, it was important for the Indian team to regain momentum. For almost weeks in a row, there has been intense speculation on how much tinkering can be done with the team in the last five ODIs before the World Cup.Comments coming from people who matter have been mixed. Someone like skipper Virat Kohli feels these ODIs assume significance and not the Indian Premier League which will follow. In contrast, selection committee chairman MSK Prasad has said something quite the opposite as to how the IPL will matter!Back to the match on Saturday, the bowling department once again had a settled look and did well to restrict the Aussies to 236. With Ravindra Jadeja back in the ODI mix after a long time, he once again showed how valuable his experience could be in England in the World Cup. His 10 overs offered many indicators as to how his left-arm spin could come in handy.With Vijay Shankar not getting to bowl a full quota of 10 overs, there is not much to suggest he will figure in the final 15 for the World Cup.advertisementFor those who had seen Dhoni and Jadhav bat in Australia, Saturday’s match was like a repeat. After four wickets had fallen, it looked pretty open. This is when the duo stuck together and played with purpose.Jadhav was definitely more aggressive and dominated but what was important was he had the right support from Dhoni at the other end. This is not the same Dhoni we knew a few years ago. His aggression has come down, though to expect him to win you matches single-handedly may be a bit unreasonable.But if you are going to talk of pure wicket-keeping skills and experience, Dhoni still has plenty to offer to the Indian team. The other day, Sunil Gavaskar spoke at the India Today Conclave on how Dhoni could be the X factor at the World Cup.Someone like Gavaskar knows more than the average fan and other experts, so what he was suggesting was how Dhoni being close to the thick of action can be a big plus. It’s no secret, Kohli relies heavily on the inputs his previous captain gives. Add the two brains – Dhoni and Kohli – there is a lot which can be planned together now and in the World Cup.To be sure, the process of tinkering and trying options for India has begun. The think-tank is planning to try out all the options available before the World Cup. Jadeja may not have got a look in, but with Hardik Pandya out of action, luck smiled on him.There is still room to make smart changes in the top of the batting order. The way wickets fell on Saturday, it would be good to see Kohli come down and bat at the No.4 position from here on.There are reasons why this move will pay dividends as the team needs someone with Kohli’s experience to guide the team in the event of a collapse at the top. Kohli scored 44 on Saturday and there was pressure after that on Dhoni and Jadhav.At the top, you have two batsmen, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan with rich experience. The No.3 position, currently occupied by Kohli, could do with a change. It may be well worth trying out Ambati Rayudu or Rishabh Pant in the one-drop position.After the series in Australia, coach Ravi Shastri had hinted Kohli could come in at No.4. As one who reads the game well and is part of the think-tank for the World Cup, the next four matches could see more experiments being made.The advantage of Kohli coming one position lower is he can stay on till the end of the innings. He has been in amazing form and from here on, how he preserves himself will be very important. After all, none wants to see the Indian cricketers suffer a burn-out before the World Cup.In life as in sport, heroes have a big role to play in success and defeat and eventually becoming huge role models. Just before the ODIs, the Indian team may have found it hard to concentrate in the T20s, what with Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman held in captivity by Pakistan.advertisementPerhaps, this win on Saturday against Australia was a big salute to the Indian Air Force officer returning home safely.Indeed, this is the final countdown for the Indian cricket team.Also Watch:last_img read more

They started to create more problems with their long balls,” he commented.“I felt Andre Gomes and Gana were getting tired after we played on Wednesday night. Watford had one week to prepare for the game.”“I changed Andre and was preparing to put on Bernard when they scored,” Silva continued.“We reacted [to going behind].”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We had two balls off the bar and one clear chance for Dominic,” the manager said.“We created enough chances to score but were not effective [with our finishing]. Sometimes in these moments, something can happen – but it is only us who can work more to change things.”“When you play away and create the chances we did – and clear chances in some moments – we have to be more effective,” the Everton boss commented.“In one moment they will start to go in and we’ll start to win matches.”“But there is just one way: work more, become more confident and look forward and try to change things,” he added.“It is a good moment to rest the players, then bring them back to prepare for the next match against Cardiff and the derby against Liverpool.”💬 | The boss delivers his post-match verdict: A frustrating afternoon. #EFCawayday— Everton (@Everton) February 9, 2019last_img read more
