Naturally, when music video director Ian Padgham was enlisted to shoot a memorable video for megastar LeAnn Rimes, he chose the very best video camera for the job – an iPhone. Wait. What? Yup! The new stop-motion music video for Gasoline and Matches was shot entirely on an iPhone 5S. Did Padgham use a top-notch camera app like FiLMiC Pro? Nope. He used Vine. Yes, THAT Vine.

Glen also recently published a very nice report on using radio mics (lavs, handhelds, etc.) with an iPhone. iMore took a look at the recent olloclip update. The new version offers an additional macro lens, and more. If you’ve
