    I shot this today of my car and noticed when I got home it had some crazy light noise or distortion in the video? You will see it on the front fender and tire and as I walk around the car on the hood and grille? Any ideas?

    Are you sure it's not a reflection from something metallic? Were you wearing a watch or any other jewelry? That's what it looked like to me.

    Can you reproduce it? It wasn't visible towards the end of the video. Does it show consistently in different types of environments?

    Ok...I just watched the iPhone 6 Plus video (1st time I watched it guess I wasn't paying attention) It has the noise in it also at different parts so the 2 phone being so close together must of caused interference with each other is the only thing I can come up with.

    It's the sun reflecting off of the hood. Super-tiny, super-bright lights going into tiny lenses sometimes create little flares on the opposite side of the image.

    You can tell because they appear and disappear at the same time the hood-reflections do. At one point there are two reflections of the sun and it makes two flares.

    I suspect they are dancing around like that because the optical image stabilization smooths out the car video but not the flare itself. So you get the reverse: your hand's motion mapped onto the flare.

    EDIT: I took a sample shot with my iPhone 6S in a very obvious way. You can clearly see here what's going on; the extreme light bounces around inside the lens and lets you see everything. Essentially you're getting an image of your own camera. When it's the sun, though, it's so bright it doesn't come out this clear. It just looks like a white dot.
