What it is: Director Steven Soderbergh plans to use the iPhone’s camera exclusively for making his next movies.
At one time, digital cameras could only capture poor images. That’s why companies like Kodak felt they had nothing to worry bout since film captured such better images. Then digital cameras gradually improved until professionals started to use digital cameras for their convenience as well as their picture quality and resolution.
Today, very few people use film. Even professionals use dedicated digital cameras, but director Steven Soderbergh plans to go one step further. Instead of using dedicated video cameras, he plans to shoot movies only use the camera in the iPhone.
Amazingly, the iPhone’s camera has gotten so good that its small size and convenience makes it much easier to use than expensive, bulky dedicated cameras. With image quality being equal to what dedicated digital cameras could capture just a few years ago, the iPhone camera is all professional photographers and film makers really need any more.
At one time, the idea of editing a picture on a smartphone was laughable. Now film makers are able to not only capture entire movies on an iPhone, but they can also edit video on an iPhone as well. That’s because the power of the iPhone is equal to what PCs offered just a few years ago. With processing power and camera quality being equal to dedicated film making equipment from the past, it’s no wonder more and more film makers are relying solely on the iPhone camera for professional work.
Expect to see more professionals dumping dedicated equipment in favor of the small size and convenience of the iPhone. If the iPhone can make such a drastic change in the world in a little more than a decade, imagine what the next decade might bring with smart speakers, self-driving cars, and tablets just as powerful as laptop computers of today.
The computing world is changing faster than ever so if you’re not embracing technology, you’re falling behind. Young people understand this and easily adapt to changing technology. Older people are most resistant and more likely to suffer the consequences as a result. So whatever your age, don’t think like an old person still clinging to the past. The future is bright and wonderful. Just look at it through an iPhone camera if you don’t believe.
