No other phone beats the camera quality of an iPhone. Either you are capturing a photo or recording a video, the iPhone has always been the best. If you are recording a video with the iPhone, you can choose to record it in different frame speeds and various qualities. In the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, the company has offered dual and triple cameras also which certainly improves the quality and offers you more features. You can now shoot sharper videos with better colors, and the zooming option also has been improved since you can switch cameras to get closer or farther away from the object even during the recording.
To shoot a high-quality video, along with the advanced features and excellent camera quality, you also need a certain set of recording skills and camera tricks. In this article, we are going to tell you some easy tips which will help you in recording a video quality you will love. Let’s go through these easy but amazing tips.
Holding Your Phone Right
The very first thing you do to shoot a video is holding your phone. You must hold it the right way to capture a great video. You should keep the platform in my mind on which you are going to share your video, along with the content and editing options. For example, if you are going to upload your video on YouTube then it is better that you shoot it vertically, but if you want to put that video on Instagram then horizontal will look better. If you think that you will be compiling different video clips before you can put in on media platforms then make sure you are capturing all the clips the same way. That will make the editing easier.
iPhone 11 and 11 Pro users are lucky enough that they cannot only record videos in 720p or 1080p but also 4K quality. You might be considering recording videos in 4k if you want higher resolution in your video. You can always find the option of increasing video quality in the camera settings on your phone. If you feel like 4K videos are consuming much space on your phone, then dropping quality to 1080p or 720p is a good option.
To provide you a professional experience while recording things, iPhone 11 and 11 Pro offers you video recording at different frame rates. You can shoot 4k videos at 20fps, 30fps, or 60fps. 30fps is moderate for recording videos you would like to put on social media. To shoot some sports scene, 60fps is an excellent option to record minor details of the rapid movements on the field. You can also use some editing software afterward, to make the video look even better. Beware of the lighting while recording some slow-motion videos at a lower frame rate.
Exposure and Focus
One very important thing while recording videos is the focus and exposure. The camera on your iPhone is good at using auto-focus and auto-exposure. But there might be times when the things you want to focus are not in focus and also brightness is not up to the mark. The solution is to take control of exposure and focus. Tap on your screen on the object you want to keep in focus, and a yellow circle will appear where you can also adjust the brightness and exposure while recording the video.
Zooming enough at the right moment is also a skill you need to master to capture professional-quality videos. All different cameras on iPhone 11 and 11 Pro have got different optical zooms. iPhone 11’s main camera has 1x magnification while the ultra-wide-angle camera can magnify your images at 0.5x. iPhone 11 Pro has also got a third telephoto camera which comes with 2x magnification. Digital zoom can be higher for all these cameras but it is better to stick on this much magnification only while recording a video to maintain the resolution of your video. With iOS 13 it has also become easier to zoom in iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. You can simply use a zoom dial near the shutter button to zoom and to switch cameras.
If you are trying to shoot a professional quality video then surely you are going to need some editing. With iOS 13 you can also edit your videos in the camera app only with in-built editors. You can rotate your videos, crop the frame, or adjust the exposure. You can also give the videos a finishing using the trimming option at the starting and end of the video. Along with adding filters on your video, you can also adjust exposure, highlights, shadows, saturation, contrast, and other aspects of the video. It just takes some time to give final touches to your video to look good on the social sites.
You can use these tips and tricks to produce a high-quality video just with your phone without needing a professional camera. Your iPhone has got the power!
