Being an aerial photographer pretty much full time and having early access to the iPhone 12 Pro, made this project a no brainer. To an extent, I have overshot San Francisco in many ways, but I knew this would be a good chance to compare my new work to my previous work that was shot with various cameras and older iPhones.
Going back in 2016, my buddy Jaron Schneider and I created an iPhone only aerial film, shooting multiple cities across the United State from a helicopter with the iPhone 6s when 4K was first introduced on iPhone. It was definitely fun to re-watch that and see how far the quality and additional cameras/lenses have made this new iPhone 12 Pro a continued improvement and tool.
I shot this film using the built-in HDR video mode with no 3rd party apps. Everything was shot in 4K 60fps or 4K 24fps. Edited in Adobe Premiere. Although I stuck to my normal workflow and did not export in HDR. Hopefully, I can get that version up soon.
Photos edited in Adobe Lightroom. Minimal adjustments.
