    G'day!

    I am currently using a very old iPhone 3GS and I am strongly considering upgrading to the iPhone 6. (It's about time!:)) One reason for upgrading is that I want to use the new phone to record HD videos of yoga classes I teach (I'm a yoga instructor) for sale from my website.

    Is a 64GB model sufficient to record 2 hours of video? I own a few HD movies I purchased from iTunes and these seem to top out around 7-8GB (usually less). So I am guessing 64GB would be more than enough to record the video before I import it to my Mac for editing and uploading to my website.

    Most videos I want to record will be much less than 2 hours but I'm using that figure as a safe upper limit.

    Any feedback appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Drew.

    1080p @ 60 fps is going to be about 200 MB per minute.

    45 minutes of HD video takes up about 9 gb of storage. 2 hours of video would use up about 24 gb of space.

    Yep, 64 should suffice.

    Just make sure you have it plugged in when filming or at least a fully charged battery.

    Don't forget to turn on airplane mode. You wouldn't want a call to come in and stop the recording.
