Ducati Motorcycle commercial shot exclusively by iPhone 4 cameras in HD

By: Don Lynn | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jun 30, 2010 3:11 am

Obviously, the iPhone 4 is everywhere. While the reception and screen may be taking a beating, the 720p HD capable camera has been something that not too many have talked about. That may change with this Ducati commercial, shot entirely from iPhone 4 cameras during the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb.

 

 

 

The video, with iPhone 4 devices implemented on the bikes for the onboard shots as well as with several "camerapeople," only needed some stabilization work during post production to improve the quality a bit. The crew shot interviews as well as all 156 turns of the race, well known in the racing industry as a twisting mountainous climb that usually employs helicopters for most of the camerawork. Check it out in HD to appreciate the level of quality from a cameraphone.

The iPhone has been an AT&T exclusive device since its inception in 2007, but that seems to be coming to an end sooner rather than later if all of the rumblings are true.
