The Five-Part Strategy For Recording Great Videos On An iPhone
Why iPhone Videos Aren’t Perfect
- Sensor Size – When you squeeze a camera into such a small space, you can only get so many pixels packed into one sensor. This means that the image quality can only improve so far and the video size can only get so large.
- Light – This is also in relation to the sensor size. When you have a small sensor, less light is hitting the camera. When less light comes into the camera, your video will appear distorted in low-light. This can cause grain, noise, loss of detail and more.
- Sound – iPhone videos rely on a very small microphone built into the camera. There are some great plug-in microphone options but this would mean planning. You would need to remember to bring a microphone with you. It’s also not very good at picking up sound from a distance. So you can only film certain types of videos under ideal settings.
- Compression – When recording onto an iPhone, videos get compressed due to large file sizes. As video resolution increases, so does the file size. Phones can run out of space when filming longer videos.
