Tired of your videos looking....well....a little unprofessional?


You can seriously up your video game with some really easy, somewhat affordable pieces of equipment.


Check them out

  • Tripod: This is a no-brainer. A tripod will help steady your phone and eliminate any wobbly footage. Plus, it frees up your hands so you can focus on getting the perfect shot.


  • External microphone: The built-in microphone on most phones is okay, but using an external microphone will give your audio a serious upgrade. Look for a microphone that plugs directly into your phone or connects wirelessly via Bluetooth. Lavalier mics are great for this.


  • Lighting equipment: Good lighting is crucial for any video. Whether you use a ring light or some other fancy setup, proper lighting will take your videos to the next level.


  • Lens attachment: A lens attachment will give you more creative control over your shots and allow you to get closer or further away from your subject. Options include wide-angle lenses, telephoto lenses, and macro lenses for close-up shots.


  • Stabilising gimbal: A gimbal is a game changer for eliminating camera shake. It's especially useful for recording while moving or in situations where it's tough to keep your phone steady. Gimbals come in a range of sizes and price points, so you can find one that fits your needs and budget.

With these pieces of equipment in your arsenal, you'll be able to capture high-quality videos with your phone that will have your friends and family impressed. Go forth and conquer the world of phone videography!
