'Modern Family' Episode Shot Entirely with iPhones

Nick Bilton, reporting for The New York Times:

Over a series of late October days, camera operators working on an episode of ABC’s “Modern Family” set aside their typical high-definition videocameras and picked up iPhones. The command “Action!” was followed by a tap of that familiar red button on the device’s small video screen.

The result, which will be shown next Wednesday, Feb. 25, is an episode shot almost exclusively on mobile devices, an approximation of the way that many actual modern American families (of a certain class) communicate today.

A bit gimmicky, but a testament to the camera quality Apple has achieved with the iPhone.
