I discovered playing guitar in direct sunlight enables an iPad/iPhone camera to capture incredibly wild external guitar oscillations on the OUTSIDE of the guitar. it is amazing how simple this is and why no one else has done it before with Apple devices, at least what I can see. This means anyone with an Apple camera (and access to the sun) can make a cool stringed instrument video! The direct sun causes the camera to film at a very fast shutter speed. The “rolling shutter” effect occurs when the camera is perpendicular to the strings. We used an iPad 2 and iPhone 4. There a lot of videos of inside the guitar, but this is OUTSIDE the guitar. You can film a cool video of the guitarist playing the guitar with oscillating strings. Why is this new? My theory why no one has posted anything like this with an Apple camera before is: 1. Guitarists do not like to perform in the sun. 2. It is unusual hold a camera vertical to film a guitarist. Plus the effect is more obvious on a super large baritone 12-string guitar when plucked with fingerpicks. Hope you enjoy the video! Watch in full-screen HD to see the oscillations! Cheers, Mike Salovich mikesalovich.com Note The guitar is an extra large baritone 12-string made by Brian Applegate. The music is my composition “Prairie Ambience.” You can download it at… itunes.apple.com Please check out my other guitar videos (more coming!) on the worldbeatguitar channel.
