What you need to know
- iPhone 11 Pro has the best video performance of an iPhone yet.
- YouTuber Eric Thayne compared the phone with a RED Scarlet-W 5K Cinema Camera.
- The iPhone does well, but it's no replacement for the RED.
At this point we can all agree that iPhone 11 Pro has some pretty amazing cameras. Both stills and videos shot using an it will look pretty great, especially when uploaded to the internet where compression kills pixels. But YouTuber Eric Thayne wanted to see just how well the iPhone can compete with a RED Scarlet-W 5K Cinema Camera.
That camera costs around $10,000 without all of the required attachments, by the way.
We'd strongly suggest you watch the video all the way through because it's well worth 15 minutes of your time. In it, Thayne explains not only how the two cameras are similar, but also how they are different. Ultimately there are situations where you might not be able to tell the difference between footage shot on either one. But there are others where the iPhone falls short – like depth of field, for example.
Most noticable here is how Thayne sees things differently to non-pro users. It's interesting to see someone who isn't a tech reviewer take a look at something like this, giving their perspective as they go. People who shoot video all day and every day will see where the differences are, yet we might not.
Matt says it best.
Really though, none of this matters. The videos created on an iPhone look great, especially in the places they'll be used – home videos, Instagram stories, etc. But if you're filming that new action flick, you might want to upgrade.
