Your cellphone has the ability to take amazing videos and photos! Here are some settings to check to take your video and photography skills to the next level:


Frames per second (fps). When taking video in low light, shoot video in 30fps. It will allow more light in, making for a better exposed video. When it’s bright or if you plan on slowing down your video, change it to 60fps. You can change your default setting by going into your phone settings, finding the camera, and changing the Record Video default setting to a higher fps. You can also change this in your camera app by tapping the number in the upper right corner of your phone when you have it set to record a video.

Resolution. When taking video, you want to be sure your camera’s resolution is as high as it can be. For some phone models, that’s HD, or 1080 pixels, and for others it’s 4K. You can change this setting by going into your phone settings, finding the camera, and changing the Record Video default setting to a higher resolution. You can also change this in your camera app by tapping the number in the upper right corner of your phone when you have it set to record a video.

Live Photo Mode. This is a combination of pictures taken rapidly and merged into one. Because the shutter speed is so fast, it can result in photos being underexposed or blurry. There are some cool effects that can be done with this feature, but for the most part, you want to make sure it’s off, so your pictures are in focus. You can change this by tapping the circle in the top right corner of your camera when you have it set to take a photo. Once you tap the circle, it’ll tell you if Live is on or off.
