    Tristan Pope Photography, my company, took to the skies over NYC with the iPhone 6S + to get some of the first 4K aerial footage via an amazing company called #FlyNyon. They fly open door helicopters directly over some of the most amazing sights NYC has to offer, deemed as “the Ultimate Photo Experience”. And it truly is! See what it is like to #FlyNyon and how our different gear holds up against the extreme conditions! Will the screen break? lol

    All aerial shots are in Native 4k on the iPhone 6S+
    All Behind the Scenes are in 1080p on the iPhone 6+
    Footage rendered at 4K
    No color correction was applied so you can see what the 4K on the iPhone 6S+ can do over NYC!

    Check out our adventure!
    Miss the prep and behind the scenes of part 1? Check it out here:




    Equipment used:
    iPhone 6S +
    iPhone 6 +
    BeastGrip
    Moment Lens
    Blackwing handle
    Reticam Mount
    Z1-Smooth Stabilizer
    Zoom iQ5 Lightning Adapter Mic
    **** tons of Gaff tape
    and a lot of tethers!

    P.S. There WILL be shake in some shots. We kept them in cause, they were pretty, and we figured, ya know what we were in a DAMN HELICOPTER. :)

    I am grateful you did not drop an iPhone out of the sky into Manhattan. However, that is what I came to see.

    Wow this is amazing. There must be an incredible amount of work going into this. Be sure to post your videos. We may need to start a thread just for posting these videos :)

    Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that in the first video at 0:59 and 1:17, you can see the iPhones image stabilizer or autofocus kicking and the video "shakes" back and forth on the z-axis slightly distorting the video making it look a bit wavy for a few moments......

    What you are seeing is actually the wind sheer from helicopter. We were hitting 150 mph gusts and when it hits no stabilizer hand held is going to be ok. The wind got between the stabilizer and phone causing the shake. Had we not used the stabilizer at all the entire thing would have looked like that. You should see the footage from the 6plus we did hand held. Crazy bad. :)

    But good observation we thought it too at first.
