How to film professional videos with an Android Smartphone.

It’s no secret, I’m a big fan of producing video content with Smartphones. The quality of camera’s built in to devices these days has really changed the game, and as they say, “the best camera is the one you have with you”.

While it’s simple to get started, there are a number of simple tips to remember each time you film to really take your results to the next level, and I spend a lot of time these days teaching clients how to get the most out of their devices.

Over the past few months I’ve received a lot of requests to put together a list of my top tips for filming with Smartphones. This video runs through everything you need to start shooting amazing content videos with your Android Smartphone!

And just to make sure you don’t forget the steps covered in this video, we’ve also put together a free PDF Checklist for Filming with Android, available for download so you can keep it handy next time you’re filming! Download it here:

  1. Justin Brown - Primal Video says

    *Wondering why we recommend the front-facing camera?*
    It's MUCH easier to frame the shot and monitor your positioning with the screen facing towards you. Yes, the rear facing camera is better quality in most smartphones – but the front camera is more than good enough in modern devices to get great results in most conditions, and we think the benefits of proper framing (production quality & time saved) outweigh the cost in quality. ?

    That said – there IS now a way to easily use your PC or Mac as a viewfinder for your rear Android camera so you can get the best of both worlds! Check out this video to see how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxUmfszrV8A

    Happy shooting!

    Great to-the-point video. Open camera is good because it doesn't mirror my video when it's done recording and I view it, but is there a way to un-mirror what I'm seeing while I am taking the video? Thanks!

  3. Strong Bear says

    Thanks for the helpful video. At the end of it you said that you would put a link to a video on maintaining eye contact with the phone camera. Where is this link? I can't seem to find it in the description. Thanks.

    Great video. When I film myself on my Alacatel Android phone in my bedroom, I am always annoyed by the way the lighting turns out. One side of my face is darker than the other, and I cannot find a function on my phone to adjust this. Tried to download Open Camera, but it would not download for some reason. Help!
