Despite these circumstances, the result looked more than satisfactory. From the photographer's perspective, this function is also for the future Vlogging missions very exciting, where you don't want to use an additional action camera.
Another one exciting feature is the Cinema mode, which is for both Front and main camera can be used. Here too it seemed 4K mode and 24 fps to convince Wiesner in the first test attempts. The photographer noticed a significant improvement, particularly with the front camera, where the background is blurred in cinema mode. Not just the actual recordings in things Sharpness were more than satisfactory, but also the White balance convinced different lighting situations. Also that Wide angle lens created engraved sharp shots, even if people were moving towards the camera.

About the different Shooting situations In order to be able to tackle it best, Stephan Wiesner used various things Smartphone equipment. That was flexible Compact tripod Rollei Monkey Pod 2, which mainly in Vlogging style was used. To do this, the photographer held the tripod in his hand and was able to use an optional one Smartphone holder an external one microphone or at a later hour even a compact one LED light attach over the smartphone.
Also Long exposure Or generally shaking-free shots were no problem for him with the new iPhone 14 Pro. In addition to the action mode too quiet photo shots To achieve this, he resorted to this Carbon tripod Rollei C6i back. He particularly likes that this travel tripod comes with the Smartphone holder II is compatible, into which the device fits perfectly.
