If there’s one technique that video experts recommend when shooting video using a smart phone, it’s to shoot video horizontally. Image orientation is particularly important when uploading to YouTube and other video sites, and if you shoot vertically, your video will contain those black bars on the side that are distracting for viewers. Also, make sure that your video doesn’t suffer from camera shake (unless you’re trying to mimic the Blair Witch Project). Instead, use a portable tripod to give your video increased stability. Our mini tripods are perfect for video shooting from your camera phone. Stop by any of our 4 locations to see our selection.
