Apple Shares New 'Full Circle' Experimental Video Shot on 32 iPhone XRs

Apple today shared a new experimental Shot on iPhone XR video that features footage captured using 32 ‌iPhone‌ XR devices mounted on a bullet time rig.

The video depicts various materials, including fire, colored water, dry ice bubbles, and colored slime, in a rotating rig that provides a 360 degree view.


The video is accompanied by a behind the scenes look at how it was made, complete with a demonstration of the crazy camera rig that Apple constructed from 32 ‌iPhone‌ XRs on bullet time mounts.


The video, in addition to using a custom ‌iPhone‌ XR camera rig with multiple devices, also uses specific ‌iPhone‌ camera techniques like slo-mo, which can capture slow motion video at 240 frames per second.

This is the second experimental video Apple has made with the 2018 iPhones. Back in September, ahead of when the new iPhones were released, Apple shared an experimental Shot on iPhone XS video using materials like clay and ink to demo slo-mo, 4K, and time lapse.

The behind the scenes video was far more intriguing than the final product.
