Last year Apple beefed up the video sensor on the iPhone and gave us more control over the focus and exposure.
Then a wonderful new app came out that provided even more control.
Well, hey, you don’t have to hit me over the head more than 30 times before I get the message!
It got me wondering. Could any overworked independent professional use this to get out a good message and make themselves look good at the same time?
This video was the first I made on the subject.
Among other things, you’ll learn exactly which mic adapter to use (when you need a mic), how to keep your camera from getting the wobblies, and the best app for shooting with the iPhone.
Lots of people have found it super-helpful so I’ve decided it deserves an encore presentation. 🙂
About 3 months after I made this, I met Jaeny Baik, who had been an evangelist for this simpler style of shooting for some time, and well, watching this now, you can easily see why we bonded while making our first iPhone video together.
By the way, it isn’t only iPhones. Androids are equally capable devices. Some say they’re even better. The point is, if you aren’t using a camera phone today to shoot video, you’re missing out on a HUGE opportunity.
So watch again (or for the first time) and see why we STRONGLY believe you can use this camera without making any sacrifice in quality.
