Lots of marketers are now turning to their iPhones and Android phones to record videos for their website, blogs, facebook and more.

That’s because they can get very professional results at a fraction of the cost of video cameras and make-shift recording studios.

However you need to use some tricks of the trade if you’re going the smartphone recording route.

Here’s a quick guide to avoiding the 5 biggest smartphone video mistakes;

#1. Don’t use the red record button to start recording because it causes shake and messes up the start of your video (there’s a little-known way you can start recording without touching the screen)

#2. Don’t use the built-in mic to record the audio. It sucks. (There’s a much better option which gives you crystal clear sound with no hisses or crackles)

#3. Don’t record with the phone held upright because it will screw up the formatting. (There’s a special “pro grip” you need to use to get the best results)

#4. Don’t use the default recording feature which comes with your SmartPhone because it’s too limited, messes up the focus and distorts natural colors. (There’s an app you can use instead.)

#5. Don’t use the standard lens because it flattens the depth of field and makes every video look homemade. (There’s a cool add-on lens you need to get for just a few bucks which makes all your videos instantly look more professional).

Find out all the things you should be doing so you can start shooting Hollywood quality videos which bring in more profits to your business here…

    Superb site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this
    article? I’d really love to be a part of online
    community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
