French TV show shot its latest episode on iPhone following power outage

One French TV show had a novel way to keep going after a power outage kept its cameras from working. On n'est pas Couché (We Are Not Asleep) suffered an outage, and while emergency lights turned on, the crew had to resort to using iPhones in order to record the episode. The show was filmed on a combination of iPhone models, but iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s models seem to be most prominent.

You can watch the video the crew captured using iPhones below.

From Pure Médias (translated from French, via 9to5Mac):

Electricity has finally returned after several hours but not enough to restart all engines, lights and technical equipment necessary for the proper filming of the show. Laurent Ruquier therefore continued interviews filmed ... the iPhone to its employees, as seen on this shared image by Nathalie André France 2 on Facebook.

This was apparently the first time that a broadcast program was shot on an iPhone in France, something that has become a frequent occurrence in other countries.
