iPhone Cinematic Mode: How to Use it to Shoot Better Videos

The iPhone 13’s Cinematic mode allows you to shoot cinematic footage with a seamless depth-of-field.

iPhone 13 Cinematic Mode

Cinematic mode is a feature found in the camera’s default app. According to HowtoGeek, the core of this mode is to create depth-of-field to images with smooth transitions between distinct scenes.

The Cinematic mode, which employs multiple cameras on the device’s rear, can track subjects as they enter and exit the scene and apply a depth-of-field effect similar to that seen in the Portrait mode.

The feature produces a better depth-of-field effect than a smartphone camera would ordinarily produce.

The aim of a Cinematic mode is to simulate both a focus puller and the crisp bokeh found in wide aperture lenses. But it doesn’t stop there because you may alter your focus pulls in post-production after you’ve shot the movie.

The captured video is limited to 1080p Dolby Vision HDR at 30 frames per second, as opposed to up to 4K Dolby Vision HDR at 60 frames per second in standard mode.

Apple is considering adding support for ProRes video in Cinematic mode to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Max in a future release.

The iPhone 13 also includes a variety of photographic techniques that can be used for effects.

Using the default camera app, you can film in Cinematic mode. Simply open it and swipe to change the modes. According to MacRumors, the mode’s two swipes to the left will be visible while your phone is in Portrait mode.

While photographing in this mode, iPhone 13 users can only use the standard wide lens and the front-facing lens. Users of the iPhone 13 Pro can use both the wide and telephoto lenses on the rear and front-facing cameras.

The absence of an ultra-wide lens hints to how Apple has accomplished excellent subject tracking even when subjects are out of frame.

To alter the aperture (measured in f-stops), simply tap the “f” button while shooting. The lower the f-stop number, the larger the aperture and the shallower the depth of field.

When the lens is fixed on the subject, a narrow depth of field means that more of the backdrop will be out of focus. According to TechCrunch, you may test it yourself to see how it changes the frame.

How to Compress Videos in iPhone 13

Begin by installing Video Compress from the Apple App Store on your iPhone 13. The program is simple to use, which is why it is highly recommended.

After installing the app, launch it and select the cog symbol in the upper-right corner of your screen. You can also select a video from the Export File menu, where you can view the clip.

Examine the original program interface and click the icon. Select the video to be compressed. You can adjust the compression level of your video using the slider.

You can slowly drag it, and the size of the clip is entirely up to you. Wait a few moments until it compresses, and then save it to your camera roll.
