Centriphone: an iPhone video experiment by Nicolas Vuignier

When you come across a video of a guy skiing down a mountain you would expect the video to be shot on a GoPro.  Nicolas Vulgnier, however, had a different idea.  Swinging his iPhone 6 around his head on a string as he skiis, Vulgnier shot video like nothing else we've seen here.

Billed as 'an iPhone experiment', Vulgnier shows just the plethora of possibilities with small, portable, broadcast quality cameras in almost everyone's pockets. 

In an interview with CNET Vulgnier explained that he used a custom-made 3-D printed rig. He had an Olloclip wide-angled lens and a 64GB iPhone 6 (space gray, if you're wondering). He used the Apple camera app at 240 fps and slowed it down by 10 percent.

He admitted he'd tried a GoPro first, but the 120 fps wasn't enough to create the right effect.

Don't worry though, he reassures on YouTube: "No iPhones were harmed during the making of this video (I still use it everyday)."
