... and yeah, I know Mic is going to give me shit about it. But... the thing is... well, watch the video. Icon_smile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXg3C6cUc0o

I captured this, edited and uploaded it to YouTube with my new phone. No other tools or external editors used! This is the first phone that I bought where the camera played a significant part in my purchasing decision (I usually do not consider smart phone cameras important, but I knew about the slo-mo features on the new iPhone). And since the Aussie dollar is dropping in value, and as a result iPhones are not going to get any cheaper next year, I decided to buy now.

Got the footage about 3 minutes after walking out into my yard, brand-new iPhone in hand. Just about the time when I started considering getting the hose out and wetting the dogs so that I could film them shake in slo-mo... (not that I am ruling this out for the future Icon_mrgreen )

Of course you bought an iPhone 6.

Can't help anyone who uses Android. You cannot help someone who does not want to be helped! Icon_wink Icon_lol

What did you think of the video, JB?

Definition of the shortest measurable interval of time: The elapsed time between Rudi's music starting and Dave hitting the <mute> button.

Impressive SILENT movie.

I'm not sure what kind of joke to make... please cast your votes:

1) Predictable comment about Rudi being an Apple fanboi
2) Dirty joke about slow-mo interracial butterfly sex
3) Remark about how Apple products give the user a false sense of artistic ability, leading them to make long/boring videos
4) Superficial compliment of the impressive slo-mo capabilities of the camera, thinly disguising my own subconscious desire to own an iPhone 6.

Same here but it does look like it would be fun to play with for a little while:

Recent poor experiences with my ipad have left me a little bitter, so my opinion is a little biased, but i'd rather go with a GoPro.

I did try and upload a different edit with a different soundtrack (not that that would have helped, it was Johnny Thunder - I'm Alive), but YouTube complained about Copyright, so I re-edited the clip and had to make with that soundtrack.

All of the above were anticipated when I posted the video here. And I only wish I was kidding about that! Icon_mrgreen

The thing is - what other camera, that costs under $1000, can shoot slow-mo like this (240fps) in HD (720P) and retain image stabilisation and the ability to zoom while filming? I don't know of one! The way I figured this - I paid for the camera, Apple threw in the phone for free! Icon_wink
