    I took this time-lapse video of a tornado that moved near my campus last Monday. The iPhone 6 time-lapse video quality is superb! (especially considering I kept bumping the camera) Check it out here if you wish:

    Video quality in time lapse is excellent. I've had the opportunity to see several time lapse videos and they all look great

    I can't say with certainty but I think it was about 90 seconds. Video ends when we are put under a tornado warning and I was seeking shelter. Yeah, the warning came a little late. LOL

    Yes it was. The video is brighter than the actual conditions outside.

    Thanks!

    I had many people ask what camera and software I used to make this, and they were all shocked when I said all I used was the iPhone 6 and the camera app.

    Nice video, yeah the time lapse quality is great, better than the slow motion which on mine seems off, not as sharp. Guess apple is compressing a lot seeing it's 240 frames, that's a lot of information.

    I'm super happy at how fast video focuses too, I think the 6s is going to be the ultimate, the s version iPhones always seem to perfect the camera.

    It could be that you have the regular 6. Not sure if that has something tondo with it

    Go to settings - photo & camera and switch on video record 60 fps

    I have the 6+, but never looked in settings for the 60fps, thanks for the heads up, I forgot they added that. When I pan its now much smoother, very nice, got that too real look but I like it:D

    Not sure it will do anything for slo motion, that's already using 240fps, I think it's just that slow motion is 720 not 1080, and most likely heavily compressed.

    I wish we had the option to choose the compression, if any at all. I have 40GB of storage free I would love to use.

    That is beautiful. If I lived high up I would love to time lapse a storm....what the heck, I may try it next time anyway! Thanks! That's a great idea!

    FYI, If I was that close to a tornado I would be in the fetal position under my bed, not filming :D

    I like the jack-o-lantern soap dispenser. :D

    I would love that. Tired of safari reloading webpages.

    LOL! When I decided it was time to go downstairs to seek shelter, I opened the stairwell door and kept filming as it passed by. Probably not my best idea! It was cool though

    Tried quoting you but something went wrong lol
