The camera crew also used an Owle Bubo iPhone mount, and the EnCimena35 35mm Lens Adaptor. Ever wonder what happened to the short? Check out Time.com fantastic report on this groundbreaking film. Thanks to HHH reader, Reese Golchin for putting this on our radar.

WEDNESDAY SHOWCASE: iPhone 4S vs Canon 5D Mk II by Robino Films

It’s time for the HHH Wednesday Showcase BONUS ROUND! Robino Films has posted a side by side comparison of the iPhone 4S and the Canon 5D Mark II.  The Canon is a long-time favorite of indie filmmakers, and is often cited as being the camera that started the whole DSLR revolution. Now, I’d NEVER suggest ditching your 5D, but it is pretty damn impressive how well the iPhone 4S compares (under ideal circumstances). That said, if after watching this, you still feel compelled to toss your 5D, please let me know where you plan on tossing it.  I’ll be right

WEDNESDAY SHOWCASE: iPhone 4S footage by Benjamin Dowie

This week, I thought I’d share some fantastic footage shot by Benjamin Dowie on his new iPhone 4S. Sure, the 4S is barely out of its diapers, but clearly filmmakers are already beginning to discover its enormous potential. Benjamin makes excellent use of the new phone’s 1080p, auto stabilization, and portably. He even managed to make the iPhone’s mechanical auto-focus look somewhat artistic! Good stuff! Thanks to the gang at AppAdvice.com for pointing out Benjamin’s video!

iClapperBoard turns your iPad into a Movie Slate… Again!

Looks like Pomfort isn’t the only company getting into the clapboard business! A few days ago, HHH reported on the MamboFrame, a new accessory from Pomfort that brings physical clapping sticks to your iPad’s virtual movie slate. For many, this will be the much-needed missing link between the analog and digital worlds of film logging. It’s a brilliant, simple idea who’s time has come. And apparently, it’s about to come again (dirty sounding, but accurate).

Cut Notes for iPad gets Final Cut Pro Sync!

Digital Rebellion has released a significant update to Cut Notes, their post-production note-taking app for iPad owners. Version 1.1 introduces automatic syncing with Final Cut Pro 7! This is major!  The lack of sych was considered by most to be the previous version’s only significant shortcoming. To use the new feature, both your iPad and Mac must be on the same WiFi network.  Setup is done via your Mac’s built-in midi control software. Clever!

Filmmakers, meet iPhone 4S. iPhone 4S, meet Filmmakers.

Last week, Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S.  Pre-orders for the device began a couple days later, and by all counts, it looks like the newest member of the iPhone family is already a hit. The iPhone 4S comes with a new app called Cards for making bla bla bla bla bla. Whoops! Sorry about that. It’s got an auto-switching antenna that can bla bla bla bla bla.  Damn! Did it again. It also features an amazing new personal assistant bla bla bla bla. Truth be told, all that stuff is swell, but that’s not why you’re reading this post.  I’m guessing that

Movie★Slate 3 and the MamboFrame finally arrive!

Movie★Slate was one of the very first apps we covered on HHH.  Later, we interviewed the developer after the 2.0 release. It’s been a long time favorite of the filmmaking community, and was even featured in a recent iPad commercial, and at the Final Cut Pro X premiere in Las Vegas earlier this year. With the release of Movie★Slate 3, one of our favorite apps has received some nifty new features, and a host of refinements. While the cost of this universal app has increased slightly to $24.99, the upgrade is free for existing users.

DataVideo’s iPhone & iPad Teleprompters

It was a slow year for iDevices at this year’s DV Expo in Pasadena (thought not as slow as last year). Overall, the DV Expo a great show, but it’s been a little light on iOS products.  Only one company snagged my attention.
