Bentley Ad Shot Using iPhone 5s, Assembled on iPad Air Bentley's newest ad, Intelligent Details, was filmed entirely with Apple's mobile devices.

Shot in New York, a quick behind the scenes look at the black and white film on the $300,000 Bentley Mulsanne reveals that it was filmed with an iPhone 5s, using specialized lenses, mounts, and cases to produce high-quality video on par with far more expensive camera equipment.
