So… can you get awesome 4k footage from a smartphone? Really? Am I going there?


And Devin Graham went there too.

He wanted to know if he could shoot something in 4k using just a smartphone and so he produced this. It is very typical of his youtube content and you'll want to check out the behind-the-scenes video below as well to see how he shot the thing.

So, did it work? Could you tell it was a smartphone? Did it matter what it was shot on? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

  1. It certainly looks the business. I think it’s perfectly acceptable for the delivery platform such as mobile devices. I’d imagine he would be quite happy not to like around huge amounts of gear. Makes sense to me
