The difference is in the edit and post processing. Most people don't even want to bother with post processing still photos other than applying filters, let alone videos plus the editing.

Sure the actor is skilled, but there is zero creativity in the use of the iPhone. Its not about the camera, its about who's behind it. You all boasted Jon M. Chu, but I have to say I am not impressed with his shaky hands and non creative shots. My 11 year old could have shot this, hey go walk in a circle around a guy dancing, now flicker the lights, now shoot the street, ok hit publish.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be impressed by technology-wise. The camerawork and editing is great, but the image quality is abysmal. The in-camera post-processing looks like a Huawei selfie filter.

The shots without slo-mo are shot in 4K. The XS can't shoot 120FPS or 240FPS in 4K, only 1080P. The 1080p footage was upscaled to 4K so the different clips could be in the same video.

LOL the number of haters and ignorant comments are astonishing.
These people simply dont understand what’s being captured here and the environments.
1) this is shot in 2 different conditions. Low light scene with artificial light source and extremely lowlight/dark surroundings.
2) TAKE NOTE THIS IS VIDEO, NOT STILL IMAGES. Most flagship cameras still have major weakness when it comes to video as the smartphones cant apply HDR mode to videos to the extent they can apply to still images. So, under this condition, most smartphones will struggle. Iphone Xs did a great job for below reasons.
3) under artificial light sources. Very minimal noise, unless viewed on a big screen, its not very noticeable. Which is impressive. The details and sharpness are good. The color is accurate, slightly on the warm side.
4) fonts lit by artificial light source on the signboards. Iphone Xs handle lightsources very well this time (comparable to pixel 2xl), the fonts are still readable and the lightsources are not overblown.
5) Dynamic range. Well lighted and dark areas are well balanced and represented. Not much overexposures happening, although some minor scenes in far the background are noticeably overblown but thats only when we carefully look at further in the back. Dark areas are not forcibly brightened, avoiding unnecessary noice and well represent dark areas as dark (not purple-ish or orange-ish).
6) Video stabilization looks good, not excellent, but better than most flagship smartphone cameras. But I believe this is recorded by handheld, no gimbal or stabiliser. its a little bit shaky but still pretty smooth.
Definitely one of the best (top 2 or 3) of the smartphone cameras for video in the market currently.

Definitely a solid camera, but if this video was supposed to wow you with the fact that it was shot on a phone and not a $1k DSLR or Mirrorless it doesn't do that. Though I am impressed with the stabilization displayed if this was truly handheld as stated in the article.
Sp00mster - پیش 3 ماه
The fact that this doesn't impress you is a bit crazy. Smartphone have been challenging DSLR's for a handful of years now in broad daylight. This is in low light and not even good low light and it pulls off a usable image. Very impressive to me
TheDeviltech - پیش 3 ماه
1k DSLR realy they normally shot on something like a red which cost 50k
Demise - پیش 3 ماه
So it looks bad to you?
Songsource - پیش 3 ماه
Sypno Tech actually, it does. It wouldnt be impressive if its a still image, but its a video. Most smartphone cameras still struggle with lowlight videos and the iphone Xs actually handled that very well. This is because in video mode other cameras cant apply HDR and would result in brighter yet blown out, yellowish/purpleish, and noisy recording. The iphone Xs handled that very well.

I watched it in1440p in new macbook pro. Unluckily, when the light decreased, I can see noise of the video. The reason why it is not impressive is that the director did not use other device to improve the quality of the video, including different professional lens. Actually, this video can be shot in the day when the light is good, but the director chose night. I think this is not an Apple ad. This is real new iphone xs camera.

+Science butReversed I hated that the pixel copied apple no headphone jack btw many of us do and complain that Google others copying apple too much. We also want so card reader. The ip68 thing not worth trading sd card and hpj for. Good ideas fine but they also copied their bad ideas making us angry. Just being objective. I don't hate apple per say itself. But too over priced per performance. I'm a bang per Buck guy. And apple usb-c hello?! Standardize it already. Efficiency per dollar. Provided specs are met.

+Kong can you just leave a normal comment too accept that a phone can do this already? All this video did was showing that a phone can do this,no need too put arguments on how you hate the phone just becouse you dont like apple,besides it's not like the pixel coppied the iPhone's design and removing the headphone jack.
Kong - پیش 3 ماه
all apple really did was copy pixel method for processing the camera photos with their processor. That isn't really innovative or impressive But many forgot or didn't know that. their iphone x design also isn't new essential ph-1 had the same design but even better imo with little notch but a chin. not much difference iphone is living off the Apple brand too much. 1000+ for something that isn't new and takes almost no new engineering or designing. in the meantime xiao mi poco phone is 300? and almost as good as a 750 phone? um wtf. like seriously.

Zai Fuchigami
Zai Fuchigami - پیش 3 ماه
No color correction. The noise is just because the iPhone's sensor is tiny and handle low light situations. High end DSLRs or mirrorless cameras handle low light much much better mostly due to the larger sensor but also the faster lenses that are available. Don't embarrass yourself.
