Shoot a Better iPhone Video

GOT AN iPhone? You obviously know that the device has a great camera for taking still pictures. But you can also take great video with an iPhone.

Camp 4 Collective is a powerhouse adventure video and film production team that includes some of the world's best climber-photographers. They tend to shoot in the world's most extreme, least seen places. And a few days ago they released The Denali Experiment, featuring an all-star crew of mountaineers, skiers and snowboarders blending their skills to climb up and shred down North America's tallest peak.

Well, recently Camp 4 conducted another experiment: They shot a music video on a camera phone.

You can watch their music video here. (It's really worth looking at for technique and inspiration).

But that's not the point of this article.

What I wanted to do was turn you on to Camp 4's tips on how to use your phone to get the best video results.

Maybe you want to capture a video of a presidential candidate's campaign stop or share with us your local campaign headquarters? Or maybe you want to capture a city council debate? Maybe an Occupy event?

Whatever your passion, these tips will help you create a better product.

Oh, and be sure to link us up with your videos.
