YouTubers Donghoon Jun. and James Thornton @Incite created a new #shot on iPhone 13 video as part of their Everyday Experiments series for Apple. Using the upgraded camera system on the new 6.1-inch base iPhone 13 model, the duo recorded “beautiful and cinematic shots” just like in Hollywood movies using everyday objects.
On its Super Retina XDR (OLED) display with 2532‑by‑1170-pixel resolution at 460 ppi, for the first time, Apple offers iPhone 13 Pro features on the base model like Sensor‑shift optical image stabilization, Cinematic mode for recording videos with shallow depth of field (in 1080p at 30 fps) and more.
iPhone 13 records everyday objects in Hollywood style car chases, magical landscapes, and monster movies clips
YouTubers used remote control cars to create iconic high-speed car chases just like in the movies. They used slow-motion, depth-effect, and other features to re-create the thrill of a car chase. Taking advantage of Sensor‑shift optical image stabilization, they even placed the iPhone 13 on moving cars to capture footage. They showed the footage shot on 4K 60fps can be made more dramatic by editing it on iMovies to adjust speed and apply filters.
Next, they used groceries to shoot miniatures, recording large landscapes on a small scale. The pro tip of shooting miniature, users should put an object close to the lens to make objects in the background appear farther (the foreground element), and shooting the cinematic mode will make the scene even bigger.
Last but not the least, YouTubers create a scene from a monster movie by using cardboard boxes to construct a model of a city and using pets as monsters causing havoc. They used slow-motion to exaggerate movements and filters to create Hollywood-style effects at home.
