iphone for youtube videos

7 replies 72 views Edited Aug 7, 2013

So I'm making a youtube channel and I was wanting to know if I'd be ok w/ using my iphone as the camera for the videos? It shoots in hd and can send directly to youtube, but was just wondering if this is a dumb idea or an ok idea?

Many people do it. Just make sure you turn your phone sideways.

Won't be the best audio, and it wont be able to hold a ton of footage, but it should work fine.

I also have a digital camera for I guess longer videos but I was eventually going to get a sony bloggie and was hoping the iphone would do fine for the time. Also is your sig pic from Magic?

+1 to all the replies so far, and, you may want to get a tripod mount for your phone, like his one:

EDIT: I do a lot of video and audio work for one of my sites, and I can tell you that audio quality will always be an uphill battle on budget HD cameras/smartphones.  It will never be perfect.  Whenever possible, I run a separate audio feed from an off-camera mic or a lapel mic.  As time goes on, you may find that solution to work well for you.
