“Shot on iPhone 12 – Everyday Experiments. Get creative at home “
The title of the video already gives an idea of the wide range of recordings Apple chose for the more than four-minute long video. The idea behind the clip is to use everyday objects for video recordings that are well worth seeing. Apple demonstrates the slow motion function of the iPhone 12 with balloons that are filled with water. Instead of normal balloons, reinforced variants are used in the video, the rubber of which is thicker. Because of their greater robustness, the water balloons can be thrown onto surfaces without any problems without the rubber tearing.
The result is considerable movement effects on the balloon surface. In order to underline the color quality of the slow-mo images, not only are the balloons colorful, but also the surfaces on which they fall. Apple’s clip also shows how users can edit the videos in the iOS 14 Photos app. There are also notes for the iOS version of iMovie, with which even more effects such as green screen mode can be used. So it is possible to combine several balloon recordings.
Dolby Vision and Nightmode
For the next experiment, users need colored water, baby oil, and a colorful background. The best effects are achieved when the iPhone is attached directly to the container that contains the water and oil. For optimized contrasts and colors, Apple relies on Dolby Vision for liquid images.
The end of the clip is about the possibilities that night mode offers with its long exposure times for photos. For example, glow sticks can be used to create many effects.
