I'm shooting some doco footage using the iPhone 5. I'm looking for a way to shoot "tape" style. I don't want independant clips when I stop recording. Just want to append clips back to back continuously like pausing and recording does on any video camera.

I'd rather not combine clips at the end. If there's a way to avoid this that would be perfect.

Any suggestions?

If there is, you'd have to find an app that does it and it would effectively be doing the same thing of simply appending the clips automatically for you. In a good NLE, it should just be a matter of dropping a multi-selection of clips on to a timeline to have it assemble them back to back. – AJ Henderson May 5 '13 at 19:27

At this time the iPhone 5 does NOT have that feature. The only thing you can do is download an application such as Qik or other recording in the appstore which they have a feature such pause or zoom.
