In this article, we will be going through some of the best iPhone video tricks and tips that you can follow to make your videos more stunning and vibrant.
Make Sure That Your Phone Is Rightly Positioned
It is really important that your mobile phone is positioned rightly as you capture your videos. Make sure that you shoot the videos keeping in mind the fact you might be uploading them to some social media platform in the future. For instance, if you are going to upload your video on your youtube channel you should try to shoot the video in the horizontal orientation that works best for the videos there. While vertical videos are better for Instagram. You should also keep in mind the fact that if you are going to edit and join multiple videos, all the videos should be in the same orientation. This way you can make professional-looking videos that you can share with your friends and family.
Make Use Of 4k Videos
iPhone users get the option to record videos at 720p, 1080p, and 4K. Among them, 4K is the best recording option that you should go for. Although, with 4K you might get heavier video files, however, the quality that you will get would be the best.
If you are running low on space then you can change the video setting by changing the video resolution to 720 or 1080p as well. You can even go into the camera setting to get more options so that you can optimize your videos according to your needs.
Adjust Frame Rate According To Your Subject
You get the option to record your videos as 24 fps, 30 fps, 60 fps. You can choose the frame rate according to your subject and the motive of recording the video.

Whereas 60 fps is more suitable for recording objects that are in motion and you have good lighting as well. You even get editing tools such as iMovie that you can use to reduce the frame rate of your videos after recording them. This way you can make your videos more dreamy as well.
