Without further ado, let’s get started!

Stabilizacja

The latest iPhone and GoPro models have a great Stabilizacja obrazu capability. iPhone 13 Pro uses both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Stabilization, whereas GoPro Hero 10 Black uses its advanced Hypersmooth Stabilization that produces super stable footages even in the worst shaky conditions and without gimbals.

However, the image stabilization on iPhone is only good enough to slow down a slight shake of the hand. It isn’t even in the same league as the GoPro, especially when you talk about action videos. The shots were taken by the iPhone look much more unsettled, especially with fast movements. In contrast, the Bądź profesjonalny has a set focus even in extremely shaky situations, thanks to its outstanding HyperSmooth stabilization. So, if you are planning to shoot action videos, GoPro is definitely better than any iPhone.

Design & Durability

Bądź profesjonalny is considerably less bulky and more kompaktowy than an iPhone. Being the default ‘outdoor adventure camera’, GoPro has a rugged exterior and simple & focused feature set making it the perfect companion when dirt and mud are calling!

But, you can not say the same about the latest generation, or in fact any iPhone. If you drop the iPhone 13 Pro on the floor, its screen will most likely be broken. That’s definitely not the case with a GoPro. So again, for any action, sport and adventure shooting, a GoPro is more ideal than an iPhone.

Wodoodporny

The latest Bądź profesjonalny models are waterproof in true sense. You don’t need an additional housing to protect them from water, they’re inherently made to be waterproof (up to 33ft or 10 meters). So, you can dive with a GoPro in the sea and capture perfect quality videos and photos.

Theoretically, even the iPhone (X, 11, 12, 13) is waterproof! But, even Apple’s latest iPhone models are only splash-proof lub waterproof just by a couple of meters of depth (IP68 certification).

So, if you are planning on recoding beach videos or underwater videos, a GoPro will be more indicated. An iPhone is good for recording vlogs at the beach or at the pool. But not it’s not so indicated for snorkeling or diving videos.

Upływ czasu

GoPro and iPhone both have time-lapse video. GoPro offers perfect time-lapse shots while moving, without any noticeable shakes (TimeWrap). But, if you want to take a time-lapse video on your iPhone while moving, the video won’t be as smooth as GoPro’s. If you compare the two, iPhone 13 Pro’s hyper lapses (while moving) look much more unsettled, especially with fast movements. Also, the night-lapse mode works like a charm in the GoPro, which is sadly not available on the iPhone.

Start-up

If you already own an iPhone and use it, most likely you’re already familiar with this process. The iPhone aparat fotograficzny is always just a quick swipe away. With GoPro, once you’re familiar with its few buttons – which one turns the device on and which one takes pictures – you can quickly get good photos and videos in any situation. But, be sure to practice a bit beforehand!

Speed-wise, the iPhone is clearly the winner here. Its camera can be started in fractions of a second via its lock screen. But, GoPro Hero 7 & 8 take about 3 seconds to start up. And, with the GP-2 processor on the Hero 10 Black, GoPro has also upped its game when it comes to processing speed.

Low-light Photography

It is a known fact that GoPros aren’t the greatest cameras when it comes to low-light or night photography and videography. Although the new generation models have improved a bit in this aspect, it’s still not there! An iPhone, on the other hand, can surprise you with its low-light photography. The presence of a flashlight, combined with a wide aperture that captures more light, works for its advantage.

The latest iPhone models – (X, 11, 12, 13)’s primary lenses have a wider aperture as compared to the latest GoPros (Hero 8, 9, 10 Black). Hence, the iPhone performs better than GoPro in low-light conditions.

Extensions & Accessories

Wszystko Bądź profesjonalny users know of the large inventory of GoPro mounts available in the market to shoot from different angles. GoPro Hero 8, 9 & 10 Black are no different, with a lot of extensions to choose from. You can attach a GoPro to your car or your bicycle, also on your head or chest for amazing POV shots while hiking. Unfortunately, you can not say the same about the iPhone, where there are fewer accessories available compared to GoPro’s, such as LEDs, selfie sticks, and a few more.

Expandable Storage

jakiś iPhone doesn’t come with expandable storage. You pretty much have to depend upon the in-built storage of your phone. But, in the case of Bądź profesjonalny, the expandable storage via Micro-SD card comes in handy, especially if you’re looking to shoot 4K Footage.

GoPro vs iPhone – For Vlogging


Bądź profesjonalny

With GoPro’s obiektyw szerokokątny, the nearly endless number of GoPro accessories and mounts to enhance footage quality, and the possibility of underwater filming, GoPros provide a truly amazing vlogging experience. GoPro Mounts and accessories are your best friend as a vlogger because they can help stabilize the camera and ensure that your video looks appealing to the audience. And since GoPros are quite compact, you can use them in public for vlogging without drawing a whole lot of attention to you.

For vlogging, most people look for a camera with a odwróć ekran, because it’s much easier to control your image when you have a flip screen. It makes you aware of how you look or whether you’re on camera or not. Fortunately, the GoPro Hero 9 & 10 feature a front display that lets you see yourself while you’re shooting. It’s a great addition and a breath of fresh air for vloggers.

However, older GoPro models don’t have a flip screen. But, there is a solution if the GoPro that you own doesn’t have such a provision. You can “fake” a odwróć ekran on HERO 4/5/6/7 with this accessory (it’s a mirror, basically):

  • OBRAZ NIE JEST OPÓŹNIONY (Jest to lustro odzwierciedlające obraz z tylnego ekranu)

iPhone

The main benefit of having a smartphone as your camera is that since your phone is always on your hand, you won’t miss any interesting shots because there’s no time for setting the camera. The iPhone 12 or 13 are a great choice for vlogging. It offers a wider shot with the ultra-wide camera lens that lets you shoot a complete landscape portrait. Therefore, it can be said that the latest iPhones (iPhone 12 or 13) can be used as the best substitute for GoPro for your vlogging and short film.

I personally tend to film any casual vlogs and document my day-to-day life with my iPhone camera just because it’s always in my pocket wherever I go, more than my GoPros. Have a look at this perfect Vlogging Equipment for your iPhone:

iPhone vs GoPro: The winner is…


Both GoPro & iPhone cameras are capable of shooting at high resolutions (up to 5K for GoPro & 4K for iPhone), but they don’t necessarily cater to the same user. So, if you are going to use your camera mostly for still photography and for documenting your day-to-day life, then all the latest iPhones (iPhone 12, iPhone 13, etc) are probably more convenient than a GoPro, especially if you already own an iPhone. However, if you need to record sport, action, oraz Podwodny videos, then Bądź profesjonalny would be a better choice because it’s designed for that.

Personally, I use both my iPhone camera and GoPro for travel and vlogging. GoPro is my primary camera as it is much more durable and rugged. I would recommend GoPro over iPhone for documenting all kinds of adventures – more so – if you don’t have the latest model of iPhone! However, if you don’t have the latest GoPro Hero 10 Black, iPhone 13 is a great choice for selfie photos and vlogs as you can see your face on the screen while recording.

Overall, the GoPro is way more versatile as compared to the iPhone, especially for traveling and action… And it goes underwater too!
