There’s been a lot of talk lately about the iPhone 4S, both good and bad. A lot of folks had some silly expectations of what the iPhone 4S should be and do, and how it shouldn’t have even been 4S, how it should have been 5. But what Apple has done has made some small but powerful tweaks to a nearly perfect phone that makes it only better, perfect example, the camera.
The video above was shot completely with an iPhone 4S, and the quality is stunning. I wonder how many people would have guessed it was shot on an iPhone if they didn’t have previous knowledge?
The video was made by Benjamin Dowie, who did a wonderful job of capturing a day at the beach, but couldn’t anyone do the same with an iPhone and a bit of knowledge of filmmaking? That’s kind of the magic with this update is that we all have the potential to make beautiful things. The iPhone is good at cashing in on this, democratizing tools and allowing most people to create amazing things, like what Instragram does with photography.
