As I've talked about before, sometimes the best camera is the camera that you have with you. On a trip to Switzerland's Jungfrau region earlier this year, Seoul-based film team Roomia proved just that by capturing all their footage on an iPhone 7. By using the FilmicPro app to control the iPhone, they were able to get some pretty great shots with nice exposure and balance. Not sure if any stabilization was used but this footage makes me want to grab a phone gimbal and travel the world immediately. The color grade used in this was applied in Final Cut and brings about an almost vintage feel. The way the colors invoke springtime makes me want to book a trip to the Swiss Alps right now. The blues of the Alpine sky really pop against the cable cars as they fly by overhead. The quick transitions, which are used sparingly and to good effect, really set the mood for an afternoon of skiing. A few years ago we flew over the Alps and looking down on the magnificent peaks really kindled a longing for mountains in me, just like this video did.
The Top of Europe
You can find out more about Switzerland's Jungfrau at the Swiss Tourism Board website here. Below is another video from Roomia on their Swiss trip and shot on an iPhone 7. it's amazing what we carry with us every day can achieve. Now get out there and start shooting.
For more than 100 years, the Jungfrau railway has been making its journey to Europe’s highest-altitude railway station at 3454 metres a.s.l. – right at the heart of the UNESCO heritage site “Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch”. All through the year, the cog railway runs steeply up through a tunnel to the Jungfraujoch from Kleine Scheidegg. -MySwitzerland
