You’ve probably seen monitors on different people’s cameras before. Did you ever wonder why they have them there or what they could be used for?
In this post I’ll be talking about why and how I use a monitor/recorder, as well as talk about different devices.
I recently traveled to Thailand and Shanghai for a bit of filming and location scouting for some projects. When preparing for the trip I realized I needed a travel tripod that I could comfortably walk around with all day and set up for some time-lapse photography.
This was shot with an iphone 6 plus. Incidentally it was also entirely edited on the iPhone 6 Plus using the iPhone version of iMovie.
I am using the time-lapse feature on the stock camera app and some basic settings in iMovie.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how well and easy it was to work in iMovie for iOS.
In my experience this is what Premiere Clip was Trying to be but lacked so much.
It was easy to add fades, retime footage, trim footage and audio. If this ends up having seperate tracks or storylines it could make a lot of editing very interesting. Id love to proxy edit fcpx on this thing.
I will absolutely be using iMovie on iOS in the future. All around awesome.
Music is Andrew Bird.
I’ll be putting together a larger review because I am so impressed with this product.
