Sharing an iPhone video between two iPhones

What's the easiest and/or quickest way to share a video taken on an iPhone, with another iPhone?

Airdrop assuming the two devices are in the same room, are iPhone 5 or later, and run iOS7 or up... If not: depends on lentgh and whether quality is important... iTunes on PC is another option. On the receiving phone install a free videoplayer that can use file import via iTunes. (Goodplayer etc etc etc)... Transfer vid to your PC, start iTunes, connect the other iPhone via usb cable. Go to theapps tab. scroll down until you see the file sharing window. You can add files to the connected device without 'sync'... so, you're not wiping the other iPhone.

Thanks, will try this AirDrop option! Does that use bluetooth?

Thanks, will try this AirDrop option! Does that use bluetooth? Bt and WiFi... It's fast enough and relatively easy on battery - I used it a lot to transfer pics and vids between iPad and iPhone.
