Hi Tom, I have an iphone 6 (16GB) and want to upgrade so that I can start shooting film so need a camera with a larger memory. I was thinking about upgrading to the iPhone SE 64 GB and getting all the iPhone accessories. However, I'd also like to use the camera to view Virtual Reality on, so I am veering towards the cheaper Samsung Galaxy S6 to use with Gear VR. It shoots 4K video, slow and have a 16 megapixel screen and it's cheaper (about £340 on eBay). I've never used a Samsung and don't know how compatible they are with Macs and all the good smartphone accessories and applications. Just wondered if you'd used one and what you felt about them to film with? many thanks Rachel

I haven't used one but they are supposed to have very good cameras. But I think you may need to install a helper app to import the video files to your Mac.
