Brian Pobuda iPhone Video Montage of NYC

It isn't just about traditional camcorders anymore. There is a range of recording devices that now include mobile recording via Smartphones and tablets. I found this video in the citizen journalism section of Vimeo by Brian Pobuda.

It is another example of how it isn't just still photos or video. It can be a creative merger of both document the feeling of being in a color rich dynamic place in time. A catchy tune doesn't hurt either.

From the Apple web site the video tech specs on the iPhone:

  • Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio
  • Video formats supported: H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format
  • 5-megapixel still camera
  • VGA-quality photos and video at up to 30 frames per second with the front camera
  • Tap to focus video or still images
  • LED flash
  • Photo and video geotagging
The creative tools continue to expand. I'm hoping the Android video community kicks into gear soon and very soon.
