Apple Shares New 'Everyday Experiments' Shot on iPhone 12 Video

Apple today shared a new shot on iPhone video called "Everyday Experiments," which is designed to show off the photographic capabilities of the iPhone 12.


The video showcases water-filled balloons, liquid moving around, popsicles freezing, and more, before going into a tutorial on how to make "beautiful images with stuff you can find around the house."

Apple's tutorial teaches customers how to use water balloons and slo-mo to make slow motion animations and how to make psychedelic liquid formations using oil, water, and food coloring. There's also a tutorial on using glow sticks for night time shots.

‌iPhone 12‌ features showcase camera features that include slo-mo, Dolby Vision HDR recording, and Night Mode Time-Lapse, plus it highlights editing video in iMovie.

Apple has done several of these "Experiments" videos that take advantage of ‌iPhone‌ cameras in unique situations to get interesting photos, but this is the first that's included a tutorial for people to recreate the effects at home.

Very nice, fun video. Those guys are cool. Actually blew my mind that iMovies could do that with the balloons and green screen.

These look incredible.

Love the idea of doing effects ‘in camera’ instead of with software.

Looking forward to trying these creative ideas out with my children.

Wow. Not too hard to reproduce either. I took a couple of still shots with the iPhone mini through the side window of a car moving at about 30 to 40 kmh on a cloudy day. The images were quite usable. Nothing like the blurred mess I got from my 6s. I am impressed.
