In the new video on Apple’s YouTube channel, movie makers teach how to use iPhone 12’s Ultra Wide camera, and how to create a crane shot and lighting effects on iPhone 12 Pro models. These three simple, yet impactful techniques are bound to take users’ movie-making experience to a whole new level.

  1. Make objects or people appear much larger than their actual size by filming a forced perspective trick using the Ultra Wide camera. When two people or objects are at a distance, simply position one close to the camera to give create that a giant effect.
  2. Put the iPhone 12 Pro video camera in slow motion mode and drop it from a height onto a soft surface. This trick will give a crane shot effect like that of big Hollywood movies.
  3. Create lighting effects by placing a light on a spinning wheel and film the subject in the dark on an iPhone 12 Pro. As the camera will capture the subject in different shades of light, it will give a transformative effect.

Apple improved the camera system across iPhone 12 series, with Ultra-wide and wide lenses with Dolby Vision support. In addition, the Pro models offer better zoom and come with LiDAR scanners. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has sensor-shift optical image stabilization for an even better photography experience.
