Can You Use A Cinema Lens on a CellPhone? Yes!

Yes you can put a cinema lens on a cellphone if you are like Devin Graham (DevinSupertramp) and get one custom made LOL.

Yesterday I posted a story about the tutorial from Richard Lackey on shooting Cinematic iPhone video, and I know there are plenty of folks using the iPhone (or other smart devices) to shoot video either as the main cam or b-cam. It isn't always the perfect tool, but sometimes it works just as well. Heck, in this episode, Devin and team put this in a MōVI rig as well as fly it up on a drone.

It is all about the story right? (And I think these guys sliding down these roads with bits of tire strapped to their feet as brakes is just crazy!).

Of course, this video was sponsored by a smartphone company but it does show what can be done. (I didn't choose the music and sorry, I think it is a bit much).

Video features the Rad Cows. These guys drove and built the rig racers we filmed for this video. There work is insane, Check it out here: youtu.be/9wYyiD_5SGQ

We're used to filming everything on the Red Weapon camera, a 70K camera setup. One of our most requested videos was to shoot on something more “relatable”.

Most of the phone settings used to shoot this video were at:
FPS: 30
Shutter at 1/60, this would get it close to the 24fps at 1/48 shutter that most hollywood films are shot at, since we were shooting at 30fps.

Super thanks to droneworks who played a major role in helping make this video happen. Creating the rigs we used to film.

Massive thanks to Samsung for giving us an opportunity to grow and push ourselves in a way we haven't explored yet in the realm of creating on a phone with cinema lenses.

Check out the other videos from my friends channels that also shot their videos on cell phones as well!
