Is it advisable to get a new camera and gimble meant for youtube videos for property presentations to be posted later on as FB ads? Or is it ok to use just the video cam on my cellphone and edit it? Any affordable recommended unit and its specs?
Good Day sir ! Thanks you for using the QPForum :). For your queries, it is recommended to use camera over smartphone but if you are having a a tight budget you can use high end smart phones:
1. Smartphone Photography Lacks Professionalism
The downside to smartphone photography is that it doesn’t allow room for professionalism. When using a smartphone camera, it may be impossible to frame and compose a shot to appear professional. You are more likely to take better shots when using a standard camera than a smartphone.
2. Low Picture Quality
Most smartphones have cameras that have less than 12 MP. This means that the picture quality won’t be that great. Moreover, the sensors are usually small and don’t feature an optical zoom. Even the high-end smartphones can’t take better pictures than cameras.
3. Smartphone Photography Doesn’t Allow Manual Camera Control
Smartphone cameras have limited manual control options. Unlike the regular cameras, you can’t control the aperture, depth of field, lighting amongst other features. Smartphones only allow you to zoom in or out and maybe regulate the shutter speed.
Smartphone photography has increased in popularity. This is due to the high number of people with smartphones. However, it does have its advantages and disadvantages. It is now up to you to decide whether smartphone photography is ideal for you or not.
