No doubt Apple iPhone is itself a pro when it comes to mobile phone photography and it does capture some of the best shots and videos even in auto mode. But to bring out the best in iPhone’s camera, you need to be aware of certain tactics. It becomes even more important when you are into iPhone filmmaking.
Below are a few tips that can make your video shot on iPhone stand out from the crowd:
The App Matters
You need to be very particular with what you want and how you want it to be done. There are a number of third-party camera apps that provide much more manual control over the different aspects of video recording. The difference with manual controls of a great app can be of day and night. We recommend using FiLMiC Pro that literally makes your video look like a pro.
Keeping your iPhone Steady is the Key
No one likes to watch a shaky video and you wouldn’t like to make one either. It is always better to invest in a monopod, tripod, or a steadicam to keep your iPhone stable while filming. If you are always on a move for shooting then a monopod would be a better option, while a tripod would provide better stability.
Listen the Sound
While the iPhone’s camera maybe one of the best for shooting videos on a smartphone, the microphone is just the opposite. Even if you have shot a high-quality video, its poor audio can simply mar the whole experience for the viewers. The RØDE VideoMic GO is a great product that will not only fit your tight budget but is also compatible with the FiLMiC Pro app for iPhone.
Time lapse and slow motion footage now don’t require heavy camera equipment worth thousands of dollars, that little iPhone in your pocket can do it all. Especially the recent ones, that come loaded with many camera features that can further enhance your footage. Action shots would look incredible with the iPhone’s capability to shoot slowmo videos at 240 fps!
