How to shoot a music video with an iPhone
Modern iPhone cameras are extremely powerful, capable of recording 4K video, as well as shooting slow-motion shots at 240 frames-per-second. This is sufficient for shooting a music video with an iPhone, though there are a few considerations to keep in mind. For one, you may wish to plan fairly stationary shots using a tripod or rent a cheap mobile-friendly gimbal to avoid camera shake. Second, learn how your iPhone handles Depth of Field. The newest iPhones have Cinematic Mode in the Camera app, which is perfect for music videos. Otherwise, some attractive bokeh can be achieved by focusing on a subject close to the camera while the background is fairly far behind it. Finally, from within the Camera app, find the FPS setting—make sure to shoot in 24, not 30 or 60. 24 FPS is the standard for cinematic video and will give your video that movie-like quality you're looking for.
