Rian Johnson Shot on the iPhone 11: Watch His Footage and Read His Review

Rian Johnson Shot on the iPhone 11
The established filmmaker takes Apple's latest for a test drive in Paris

Cult of Mac reported that Rian Johnson had shot some footage in Paris, and we're happy to share it here as a taste of what video looking like coming off the iPhone 11 pro. Granted it's a quick series of shots from around Paris (always a great subject...) and his 'review' is a tweet. But hey! It's something!

No word yet on if Johnson's stand-alone Star Wars movies will be shot on the iPhone or not. We're sure fans would LOVE that. 

In any case, it's exciting to see what people can do with this phone and its many lenses. We'll keep you posted as we see more footage from more folks who get their hands on it.

Still looks like a phone not a real cinema camera. Need real lenses with depth of field to make it look cinematic.

And better codecs. You can see a lot of compression. Especially in the dark.

I mean, it looks like pretty much any vlog/travel video.

If you showed this to anyone, they'd have no idea it was shot on an iPhone and not any DSLR.

I guess that's good for vloggers, but this is not replacing a real camera for video work.

Look at the auto-HDR failure @43"
Despite the "Pro" name, this has nothing to do with "professional" in this field. sorry apple. not falling for your naming-shenanigans.
