Stopped watching after 5 seconds when I realized it's portrait mode, not landscape. As an old guy, I can't understand the appeal of vertical recordings over a nice widescreen you can show on a larger screen.......

Speaking for even OLDER folks, I just can’t understand all the hubbub about color, it distracts WAY too much.

Speaking for even older OLDER folks, when there’s audio in the moving pictures, you can’t hear the piano man.

It's a cool video, but there is no frame of reference in order to have the viewer understand what the iphone 12 improvements in low-light photography are.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like abstract videos like this are sort of meh. Why not go out in the middle of nowhere like Denali National Park or Death Valley? Any good footage one could capture there would have beat this abstract studio stuff.
