When Apple announced their new iPhones, unsurprisingly they also touted the new and upgraded cameras on the devices. For those who are wondering what kind of stuff you might be able to capture using the new iPhones, you might be interested to check out the short film in the video above.
This film was shot by director Jon M Chu, who some of you guys might be familiar with the Step Up movies and more recently, the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians. The film was shot entirely using the iPhone Xs Max, which is Apple’s top of the line iPhone, and nothing else. It was of course edited on a computer, but according to the director, there were no major edits made to correct its color.
This means that whatever you see in the video above is more or less what you might be able to expect from the handset if you were to shoot it yourself. Speaking to WIRED, Chu said, “I had literally zero equipment. I see a lot of samples of iPhone videos, and sometimes they use different lenses or professional lights. I didn’t have any of that.”
He also spoke highly of the focus of the iPhone Xs Max, saying, “I’m moving around a lot, and the focus was adjusting as I was moving, but it was finding the subject really well. There’s a shot at the end where I’m rushing toward the garage—that’s using the built-in stabilizers. It’s pretty smooth.” Apple’s new iPhones are already available for pre-order, although the current shipping estimates means that you can only expect your iPhones to arrive in October.
