The most obvious reason is the fact that it’s much more convenient, you always have it with you no matter where you go and it can easily be put into your pocket or purse, but cameras on the other hand, can be an extra weight to carry around every time you go out. Furthermore, you can easily share the video content to another phone via Bluetooth, airdrop, or NFC easily but with cameras, you need to have a cable or card reader and access to a computer, this is unavoidable unless you get a camera with WIFI.You need to have a good high-end camera to take a good quality video, I agree most cameras already have a good visual quality but visuals aren’t the only thing that makes a video great, the audio matters too but unfortunately the microphones of some cameras have a low signal to noise ratio, so you tend to hear a lot of ambient noise along with the audio. If you want to market or send out a message to the general public, then phones would be a much cheaper and better alternative. The background noise issue can be avoided with phones by using lapel microphones or miniature wireless microphone and a good recording application. The built-in tools wouldn’t be good enough, if you are using IOS, you can download PCM Recorder MK 2 and on Android, you can use WavePad Audio Editor.
How to take a quality video through your phone
There are two ways you can approach this, you can either add the audio after your done taking a video or you can just do them both at the same time. Either way, first make sure that your phone is put on Airplane Mode, as the whole take can get ruined if the phone rings in the midst of a video take. Next up you should focus on the position of the mic, it should be close enough to record what you say clearly but not too close that you can hear the breathing noises.Furthermore, you should ensure that the wires are connected properly, place the cable inside your shirt and maybe even taped to your body. The cable should not be too stretched out and at the same time should not be dangling.
Once you’ve checked all this, start videoing and setting up the audio, and test it, if everything is in place then you can take the final shot. This can then be advertised on theatre screens in Australia or any other platforms.If you were going to get the visuals and audio separately then you need to be able to sync them both together using a production slate. Using a high-end camera would be much more expensive than using a camera. A camera would do good for budget videos and give you a good investment in return.Read More
