Not only a neat and successful project, but nicely documented and presented as well. Very cool!

Foskito: They forgot to mention the rest of the gear needed to create this video, cranes, gimbals, lighting, cinema lenses, CGI... not the regular “holiday family video” here!

I've got to admit, I'd love to see the rig they used for shooting this. It might actually be hard to see the IPhone nestled inside all the other contraptions needed this type of shooting : )

Whether extra gear was used or not, certainly doesn't detract from the fact that it was shot on an iPhone.

Besides, it seems to me that a major portion of the impact is because of the quality of the shooting and editing, which goes to show what most of us here on DPR have known for quite some time..... that while gear is important (I mean, after all, this is a gearcentric forum), it's the person behind that gear who makes or breaks the image.

Excellent video. We have come very far very quickly, and I am continually amazed at the powerful potential of these small devices that fit in our pockets.

I do love my full frame camera, but I never hesitate to shoot photos or video with my iPhone, because I know I'll get great images.

Imaging Resource has been an extremely valuable site for helping me research new gear, and I'm going to miss their input. Best wishes and thanks for all the wonderful reviews and thoughtful commentary.

Congratulations. That's a super shot. It's one thing to see a scene like this, and quite another to be able to translate it into an image that captures the original "feel", and you nailed it.

That's funny, if you're talking about the white halo around the aircraft, I thought it added tremendously to the image.
