Making a great video used to mean pulling out an expensive video camera and owning your own video editing suite. Now you can do many of the same things once exclusively reserved for a high-end equipment right on your iPhone without a ton of cash or a lot of training.
The iPhone is capable of recording high-definition video suitable for the giant plasma screen in your living room, and there are a number of video editing apps out there to help you polish your video and add opening credits, sound effects and even a soundtrack into the mix — without ever leaving your device.
If you’re more interested in sharing your video than giving it a professional look -– or if you want to share a masterpiece you’ve just created immediately –- most iOS video apps also offer the ability to upload your finished product directly from your phone to popular video hubs such as YouTube and Vimeo, where you can share them with friends, family and the world.
Check out the gallery for some of our favorite iOS video apps for shooting, editing and sharing videos. Included in the mix are some apps that will give your video a finished look as well as a few apps designed to make your high-tech video look like it was recorded on a Hi8 camcorder.
