Smartphone Video Kit in action.

Basic ‘low cost’ Kit

I would consider this the absolute minimum for producing smartphone videos where you might include an interviewee or do your own ‘piece to camera’.

The Next Level

 

These items are more refined for more professional results. The fluid head helps you achieve smooth panning and tilting shots. The phone rigs provide a precise way to attach high quality lenses to your phone as well as other accessories.

The Rode microphones are a step above the cheaper examples you find on sale and the SC6 adapter allows you to record two separate mics at once.

Camera Stabilising Kit

This tripod kit is essential if you plan to shoot videos with any movement, for example real-estate videos where you would want to make a ‘panning’ shot from left to right (or vice versa) or ’tilt’ up or down to show off a room.

Smartphone Gimbals

These are fantastic pieces of kit for achieving high production value shots on your smartphones. You can use them to follow action or for ‘walking and talking’ shots for your video blogs. These also come in handy when you want to get steady shots at events when you can’t travel with a tripod or it’s not safe to use one.

Very Useful To Have

These items are very useful to have. Having a wide angle lens can help get you the shot you need in tight spaces and also smooth out any shakiness when hand-holding your Smartphone. The flash drive is a way of backing off your videos and photos when you are shooting in the field and need extra space for filming, which could be invaluable.
