I can't be bothered to go buy a camera for filming, so I just use my phone for that. I have an iPhone 7 plus. It can record in 4K at 30 fps, but I opt for the 1080p at 60 fps.

Does anyone else only use their phones for recording?

I own a cheap but fairly well specced action camera that does most of what i ask it to do quite well, and having just got a new phone cos my old one died last week i cant really say what like the quality on my new one is like but i don't think the lens angle would be wide enough for "action sports" stuff and i don't think it does 1080p60 where as my action cam does, and i can choose up to 170 degree field of vision

thats not really a problem with you having the new Iphone 7, it has a wide angle lens on it doesn't it? I'd be wary of having my phone on me while riding as i could see me breaking it.

I use my 6Plus for any filming I do, all my clips are self filmed, and I recently got a super cheap tripod off Amazon for better angles etc.

I've been using my phone, which looks fine when viewed on a phone, but when you see it on a bigger screen it looks terrible. So I just got a gopro hero5 session and the quality is leaps and bounds better.

I'll be giving it a proper test on Friday filming my buddy ride trails and hopefully the battery will last long enough to get enough footage for a short edit

I got this one, holds my 6Plus with a thin case VERY well and still has space for a bigger case, it is stable, and when wrapped around my stem/bars it held on while doing barspins, some flatland spinning on the back wheel, and hopping a little. I'm a fan, it is now in my tools and pads bag for riding.

It also handles Gopros.

Hilarious how terribly bad the Iphone X is shaping up to be , Worse camera specs and lower video ratings than the two year old Samsung galaxy 6.... what a joke.

Both rear cameras on the X are 12 mp, just like on the S6, S7, and S8. That said, megapixel count is literally the least important camera specification. All it tells is resolution. Not clarity. Not sharpness. Resolution. Specs on paper rarely accurately show real world performance.

Eh, I still have a headphone jack. smile

As long as it can decently document footage, I'm happy.

Apple are well known for having good lenses. As are Sony. My phone has better picture and video quality than my gopro, that thing was a waste of money.
But for anyone looking to get a new phone and they want to film on it, look at the Sony's
