Nice.
I was curious.
Here is the bill of materials, aside from iPhone XS/XS Max and Zak's obvious talents:
[LIST=1]
* Freefly Movi Cinema Robot smartphone stabilizer, B&H, $299

* FILMic Pro app, v6.8.2, App Store, $14.99 [foundation, +in-app V6 Banner purchases]
* AxisGO XS/XS Max waterproof housing, AquaTek, $199.00

* BeastGrip universal lens adapter and rig system, B&H, $139.99

Not bad.

I've found the XS camera to be consistently great in real world performance, particularly video quality.

It really is the best camera I've ever owned and used. And it's with me all the time capturing memories, both still and video. There's nothing quite like iPhone that performs so consistently perfectly.
