Are you wanting to instantly sharpen the videos taken with your iPhone using its default settings? Here is how you can produce sharper videos instantly!

Your iPhone video settings don’t offer the highest settings, yet could still benefit from being sharper and more detailed.

Short Video Showing the Difference in Quality I created two 10-second videos which are virtually the same video, though viewing on a desktop computer makes the distinction easier to detect. You should be able to easily notice that the 4k 60fps video is sharper, more detailed, and smoother overall.

Bonus Tip for Composition
Whoever said nothing comes for free is wrong; here is another tip which won’t cost anything and may help improve your composition! I don’t believe this has anything to do with what was previously covered here; rather, today I am feeling generous!

Do grids help you compose images and videos more easily? If that is the case, when setting your Camera Camera Settings enable grid mode.
