Gadgets to Help You Shoot Pro-quality Movies on Your Smartphone

As more directors have shown, you can conjure movie magic with your device

AS DIRECTORS LIKE Steven Soderbergh and Sean Baker have shown, you can conjure movie magic with an iPhone.

1. Apple iPhone X
The dual rear cameras on the X are nearly as capable as professional shooters. You get 4K video at 60 frames per second, excellent slo-mo, optical image stabilization, continuous focus—and did we mention it fits in your pocket? Bonus: The crisp OLED screen doubles as a mini movie theater for playback. Take total command of your video controls with Filmic Pro ($15), a favorite app of iPhone auteurs. $999

2. DJI Osmo 2 Mobile
Stick your phone onto this stabilizing gimbal for smoother handheld footage. Cue up one of its automated modes to shoot a slick panorama or fake the look of a dolly zoom. Filming a scene on the run? An active tracking feature keeps your subject in the frame while you frantically give chase. $129
