iMovie App on iPhone 4




For the past two days, right after SEMCON 2010, I was taking our guest speakers to a trip around Boracay and I decided to not bring any camera with me and just use the iPhone 4 instead.

I thought it would be the best time to take the iMovie App installed on the iPhone 4 to the test and see if it could replace a point-and-shoot camera.

Turns out the iMovie app is a pretty kick-ass video editing tool considering it only runs on the iPhone 4. The device was also fast enough exporting the output video clip was fairly quick.

The app comes with about half a dozen movie templates (the one used here is the Travel theme) and background music but you can add your own soundtrack or add photos as well.

Navigating thru iMovie was pretty easy and I didn’t even had to read the manual or tool tips to figure how some of the functions and effects work. I just wish they’d add more templates so all your movie clips don’t end up looking very similar.

The HDR photo effect on the iPhone 4 looks pretty nice as well and the photos looked much better than the original ones. Click on the thumbnails to see bigger version.

I’m now more confident to rely on the iPhone 4 and iMovie when going on trips.

    I remember when I was unlocking an iPhone, then I bricked it, but I still asked money from the owner, hahaha. Dumb folks really fall for everything.

    @tipler – yup, some PnS have built-in editing too. I think even the 60D too.

    @tipler either he’s dumb or an impostor trying to bad mouth the real guy. I’ll go with the former.

    Whatever… Buti nalang na ganito kesa maging snatcher or pokpok sa kanto.
    High School Graduate lang kasi ako, sino naman tatanggap ng company saken.
    Kung kayo may mga magulang, then ako ulila na… Wala akong masabihan ng Ma, Pa.. pahinging pera… Kung makapanira kayo saken dito parang kayo bumubuhay saken. Pakialaman nyo nalang sarili nyo buhay. Hindi yung buhay ko. Subukan kaya nating magpalit ng kinalalagyan.? OO, alam ko illegal ginagawa ko.. bakit? may magagawa ba ako? eh ito lang alam kung ikakabuhay ko… Gaano ba ka illegal ginagawa ko? May pinatay ba akong tao para ganun nalang sya kasama… Ano ba gusto mo gawin ko? Mamalimos…? Wala man akong natapos pero dumidiskarte lang ako para mabuhay… 18 years old pa ako pero kumakayod na para sa sarili ko. Hindi nyo alam pinagdadaanan kung hirap. Kung kayo maginhawa sa kinalalagyan nyo, huwag na kayo makialam ng buhay ng may buhay para may magawa lang. Pero kayo yan eh, wala ako magagawa kung yan ikakasaya nyo. Binigyan ako ng ganitong kaalaman kaya gagamitin ko.

    wow! HDR photos are like DSLR quality! i love it! does it work on ipod touch 4? watcha think?

  17. Fleeb says:

    At this resolution, I can’t see it if it is DSLR quality. Well maybe given the ample lighting, especially under the sun, any camera phone can do the trick. For lower light conditions however…
