The Beautiful City of Budapest Captured Using Only an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus [VIDEO]



YouTuber Andras Horvath has showcased the beauty of Budapest using only an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The purpose of the video is to highlight the amazing capabilities of Apple’s new flagship smartphone lineup and to fulfil an old plan.

“I wanted to create a video from Budapest for years, because Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It felt so good is the video capability of iPhone 6 to the most beautiful places of the iPhone’s camera and show you through 6, so it finally attained my old plan.”


The video showcases all of the new features in the iPhone 6’s camera, including the new digital video stabilization in the iPhone 6 and optical image stabilization in the iPhone 6 Plus. Even though the 6 Plus has optical image stabilization, which is said to be far superior to digital image stabilization, the two man team that put this video together said that both models of the iPhone were similar when stabilizing footage. They were able to cut two clips together that were shot on two different devices and still achieve no visible difference during final playback.

The footage also showcases the new slow-motion and time-lapse capabilities of Apple’s new smartphones. Be sure to watch the amazing four minute video (below), which was captured using only an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Apple first announced and released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to the public in September. The iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 and the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.


Both new iPhone models feature the 64-bit A8 chip with the M8 motion co-processor. The iPhone 6 starts at $749 for an unlocked version and is available now from Apple’s online and retail stores.

    Ummmm….I REALLY wanted to see a video of Budapest. But this sure doesn’t “showcase the beauty of Budapest”. But yes, it DOES “showcase all of the new features in the iPhone 6’s camera”. So much so, that it made my eyes hurt and I had to stop watching halfway through. Reminds me of how some people literally destroy their photos with all those “cool” filter effects.

    Film editing 101: Never use an effect unless it’s vital to the production.

    They could have actually made a good video, given the shots they had. But they just destroyed it by making the focus on effects so prevalent that I could barely tell what I was looking at.

    I have to agree with you on this one. But I think it has a lot to do with the very poor choice of music. It’s too fast paced and intense to showcase a city that’s slow paced and relaxed. It doesn’t blend at all with the old buildings and scenery. The effects and cut scenes going in sync with the music was well done, but just not the right kind of video to use it on. The whole thing just feels off.

  • Brad

    So, the problem was not the camera? The problem was the camera man, or the editing?

  • ShaBi

    ……like I said, it’s the music. Everything was done well, just wrong choice of music. Just my opinion anyway.

  • Julian

    I thought it was an interesting video and worth stopping to watch for few minutes. It is one style in which to do this type of video, that not all might feel is the “right” way, and I can appreciate the comments about the music and effects. But having been to Budapest a couple of times, it’s nice to reminisce about a nice place to visit and to see the highlights. I think the more interesting thing to casual viewers is the fact this something I can imagine seeing on TV or professionally produced and it’s using IPhones!!! Technology has come so far, hasn’t it… wish I could live another 100 years and see where we’ll be, if we dont’ destroy the earth and each other before then… Thanks for highlighting this video.

  • Disagree. Thought it was well done, showed off some cool architecture in the city. The moving time lapses were pretty cool.

  • Al

    Research the term “to show off”. In this context, it means to display or flaunt. You can’t show off architecture, etc. (the “subject”) with just glimpses. And you especially can’t show off a subject when you are too busy showing off visual effects.

  • Al

    I would agree with that. Camera men playing with in-camera effects WAY too much. Editing was way too choppy and not enough attention on the actual subject matter. And, as ShaBi said, the stock “mystery/action film” sound track was completely inappropriate for the context.

    And…. it was very intense (in a bad way) … it didn’t always flow between related subjects… and I never could finish watching it because it made me feel uneasy, and I got bored looking at nothing but effects, with such brief glimpses at subject matter that I never had time to actually “take in”.

    Loved it. Thought it was well done. Choice of music was interesting and I thought it went well with the type of video he produced.

  • ShaBi

    I didn’t say “inappropriate”, that’s a little out of context. Just “not the right kind” of music to go with.

  • It was the best video ever made!

    Well, no, I was using my own words to sum up the sentiment you clearly expressed with regard to the music. “It’s too fast paced and intense to showcase a city…” …equals… “inappropriate”.
