Shooting Video With A Phone Or Tablet? Do This
It's that time of year. Schools are letting out for the summer, and families are going on vacation. That means lots of photos & video. This morning, I attended my grandson's year end awards ceremony. Several parents were holding phones & tablets in the air to record their child's proud moments. Some will have better results than others, because of the way they were holding their devices. Look at your TV, and computer monitor. They display images horizontally. If you hold your phone. or tablet "upright" while shooting video, you'll get a narrow image with big black borders on both sides. Turn it "sideways." The image will fill the display. If you display it on your computer, or stream to your TV, you'll be much happier with the results.
