How Gruber Shot The Talk Show at WWDC

Daring Fireball: How We Shot The Talk Show Remote From WWDC 2020

For video, we shot 4K 30 FPS using iPhone 11 Pros. That’s right, iPhones. Apple seems to have plenty of them so Federighi and Joz each had two — one positioned head-on, and one to the side for a wider-angle view. I just used one.

The video in this interview was great, and I’m not surprised to hear they shot it all on iPhones. While I love having a “real camera” for still photography, there’s no question my iPhone 11 Pro takes better video than any video camera remotely in my price range. You can get better video, sure, but you have to spend an insane amount of money to get it.
