Expert Take: Shooting like a Pro with your Mobile Phone

Home / Uncategorized / Expert Take: Shooting like a Pro with your Mobile Phone

With the right apps, techniques and a few inexpensive accessories you could turn your iPhone or similar device into a highly capable video capture device.
First thing first: Don’t use your camera app. The default camera app is not good enough to deliver film quality.

FilMic Pro ($4.99) is a brilliant app that shoots at a maximum of 50 Mbps at 1080p with tons of features like lock focus, exposure, white balance, audio metering, external mic support and variable frame rates (24p and 25p for film look).

Android users should opt for lg CameraPro($1.99) that includes variable bitrates, framerates, encoding options etc. but it is no match to FilmMic Pro. For Slow motion action, Use SloPro(free) that capture videos at 60fps, providing a smooth half-speed video.For time-lapse, Use Lapse It, which is a fantastic time-lapse video app for Android. It comes with an amazing tutorial.
