What would be an average file size if recording 1 minute of video on the iPhone 6? Normal speed, no slow motion.

  • For 30fps or 60fps video? Oct 12, 2014 at 2:33
  • Keep in mind that the answers below will vary because of file compression. Some scenes are more compressible than others. For example, a video with a constant background and small foreground subject is highly compressible because most of the picture stays constant between frames. A fast moving video shot on a roller coaster would have little similarity between frames, and would be less compressible (thus, larger).

    Sweet jesus that's high! I guess they aren't using lossy compression?

My iPhone6 22 minute video is 3.1GB. 3100/22 = 140MB per minute. This is 1920 x 1080 (1080p) @ 30 fps.

I checked the Frames Per Second in Settings>Photos & Camera>Record Video in my iPhone6 menu. I saw it was 1920x1080 pixels per frame when I imported the video to my Macbook using a program called Image Capture.
