I have professional grade equipment from $4000 dollar video cameras to Gimbal devices and more. The device I use the most however is my iPhone. Why my iPhone? First it is with me all the time, I have the latest version and the cameras are amazing so video quality is top notch. It is really amazing what you can do with it.
If you are of creating content for social media and web platforms your phone can do most of it. It comes down to the creativity of the individual. There are three things you have to think about when creating video content.
- Video or image quality
- Audio and sound quality
- Editing and sharing capabilities
Video and images are good on most phones if you know how to use it. Audio and sound is the bigger issue. iPhone can be tricky to hook external microphones up to so the best solution is a Bluetooth microphone. This way you don’t have to worry about cables into the device. Try your local computer store, music shop, or camera store and look into the many options and price points for equipment.
Below I share an app that I use for editing videos on my mobile device. It is basic but does the trick for quick videos on the go. Check out our app of the month section.
The best way to learn what your phone can do is to just get out there and create some content. Create a video and see if you can edit it on your phone and post to your social media platforms.
