Shoot video, 4K & slow mo­tion

Mac Format - - MACOS SKILLS -

Every iPhone model cur­rently on sale al­lows you to record both 4K and slow mo­tion videos.

There are some no­table nu­ances be­tween the mod­els, though, that you should be aware of. The iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7 and 7 Plus all let you record 4K videos at 30fps (frames per sec­ond). How­ever, if you want silky smooth 60fps 4K videos, you’ll need to plump for the iPhone 8 or higher.

Slow it down

There are sim­i­lar dif­fer­ences when it comes to slo-mo. The SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7 and 7 Plus can record 120fps slow mo­tion videos at 1080p res­o­lu­tion, but if you want to slow things down to 240fps, you’ll have to drop the res­o­lu­tion down to 720p. There are no such wor­ries with the 8, 8 Plus and X, which can record 240fps slow mo­tion videos at the full 1080p res­o­lu­tion.

There are other things to con­sider aside from 4K and slow mo­tion ca­pa­bil­ity. From the 7 on­wards, the power of the cam­era’s zoom has been im­proved to al­low for bet­ter dig­i­tal zoom and, in the Plus model, op­ti­cal zoom for the first time. The rear cam­eras on the X also fea­ture bet­ter video sta­bil­i­sa­tion, and an im­proved f/2.4 aper­ture on the tele­photo lens.
