Drones are gaining more and more popularity and surely will continue to do so. Originally drones were used only in war zones, but as of late anyone can use them all over the world. We used to rent drone in Prague did some air shooting and finally got one for our company because these fancy devices are becoming especially useful in video production. But what makes them so popular? Here are 4 reasons for that.
Surely enough drones are super useful in professional video production, but let’s be honest, drones are so interesting to play with. People are often buying drones just to play with them and have fun. The opportunity to fly an aircraft that can go high up in the sky and moreover film the flight - that’s truly amazing! The joy factor might the key to increasing drones popularity.
The world-famous iPhone has an amazing camera that allows you to film truly high quality video. Even professionals use it - like we do here at One Lab creating our video content in Prague. However, simply clicking the rec button is not enough to use your precious device to its full potential. So let’s look at some tips and tricks that will allow you to shoot magnificent video using only iPhone.
1. Horizontal is the way to go!
This is simply the easiest way to improve the quality of your shooting. Never ever try to shoot vertical video, it just doesn’t look great. All of our modern laptops, your Facebook and Twitter feeds support widescreen. Just make sure you are holding your iPhone horizontally - wherever you go to shoot video in Prague or any other city of Europe.
2. Tripod is your best friend.
It doesn’t matter how calm you are, there is no way you can shoot a video without your hands shaking, especially when you move. It is definitely worth some extra crowns to make sure your shots are stabilized with tripod. There is a large choice of tripods on market, try to obtain some high-quality stuff like GripTight Mount
3. Zoom is your worst friend.
We all know the temptation to zoom in with an iPhone, but it simply makes your shot worse. The reason is that there is no optical lens in your device, so zooming on iPhone is just enlarging the image digitally, which leads to worsen quality of your video. If you want to zoom in, just take a 2 step walk to the subject you are shooting, this rule also work if you decided to use professional camera for shooting commercial video on streets of Prague or in a studio.
