Hi guys

I like to film with my iPhone. From why I understand it’s 4k which is pretty good I think. Am I right in thinking that for filming, my iPhone is better than the newest iPhone?

The reason I ask is because I was going to buy the iPad for this but if my iPhone is better no point.

In addition, an correct me if I’m wrong, the 8 isn’t much better for this task compared to my 6s...?

Latest cameras are better than the 6S. I’m not too sure if you got confused between iPad and iPhone on your original post.

Thanks for your reply.

I’m comparing the newest IPad to my iPhone 6s. It seems the 6s is better for video but I’m not sure

Why? Because the viewfinder is better, or because people are small-minded and quick to judge?
maybe im quick to judge, but also because it is better if you use a gimbal, stabiliser or even a selfie-stick when shooting videos, and i have seen more than once things not ending well.

An iPhone is always better than an iPad when it comes to shooting!

Considering the new budget iPad has the iPhone 6 camera sensor which is a downgrade from the sensor you have in your 6s I’d say the iPad is going to have worse video performance/quality.
