    One of the best informative videos that I’ve ever seen.

  2. Dealwithwilly on June 27, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Thanks for sharing, anyway have anyone use Boya BY-M1 with Samsung Galaxy Note10+ ? I try to use it but my sound can’t be inputted?

  3. DeanRendar84 on June 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    when i used to film myself electric skateboarding with a selfe stick and a samsung 360 camera i’d sometimes fall and the worse thing was the dual fisheye globe lens would have a visible scratch permanently in all future footage. now that i invested on a 512gb extreme micro sd card, 3 axis gimball, light cube, dual lavalier mics, and a full 4.5 foot collapsible tripod to drop all that crap while wiping out on a crowded beach walkway again…. will make quite a scene, its good to try it all and see how it changes my tastes and sensibility i suppose, class up the joint after lowbrowing it this long.

    Great list! I was wondering where your microphone was hiding since your audio quality is very nice.

    I need a gimbal that the stabilizer feature works for Facebook live! Tired of the shakes on my live events on the go! I have a Zhiyun Smooth 4 – which appears to have been a waste of money for this purpose.

  16. Stuart Uggen on June 28, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Excellent capsule overview!

  31. Sarah Rushing on June 28, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Just found your videos, and I love the detail so far! The Zhiyun smooth 4 looks awesome, however the reviews (on amazon) seem mixed. Do you have any issues with it?

  32. Down the shed with Byron on June 28, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Mate thanks heaps Ive just starting with my channel.
    I’ve found my audio to be letting me down some times.
    Can you pair up the rode wireless go eg my son has a microphone and I have a microphone?
    Any help will be appreciated 👍

  33. FNG TV on June 28, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Once again, thank you so much for your videos! Theyre really helping me get a good start on my videos. Also the extension bar I ended up getting was the ChromLives Hot Shoe Extension Bar Mount since the one you have in your video wasnt on Amazon (unless I was looking for the wrong one). Keep teaching us newbies how its done and keep the content flowing!

  34. Sta Outdoors on June 28, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Can someone recommend me a good iPhone mic for outdoors. Usually windy everywhere I go And how do they work if I’m trying to use a dji gimble?

  35. JofPlayz-Minecraft and More on June 28, 2022 at 12:26 am

    Can u attach a ulanzi u rig pro smartphone video rig in the arkon tripod? If you can, how?

  36. Our Backwoods Homestead on June 28, 2022 at 12:27 am

    So glad to see a video with the Samsung phone. I still have a Galaxy 9 plus it works great for creating videos.
    I just got the Rode Wireless Go mic I love it will have a review on it soon on my channel.
    thank you for great informational videos!

  37. SideWalks22 on June 28, 2022 at 12:27 am

    11:41 thanks

  38. Victor Zubakin on June 28, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Great video.
    Have you tried the LiteChaser Pro system from PolarPro?
    Includes a phone holder that is a good grip & you can mount a mic or light on it.
    Also can buy Polariser & ND filters in various kits.
    Looks quite good but not cheap & you do have to use their camera case.

  39. The Moreh Qanaa ben Yehudah on June 28, 2022 at 12:30 am

    Excellent presentation Justin, thank you. I noticed that your demonstration of the cold shoe mount with Aperture Light and Smartphone was with the phone in portrait mode. Is there enough room to rotate the phone to landscape mode with the Aperture Light mounted?

  40. Miss Mobile Tech on June 28, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I have been a fan of your videos for a while now but have to say, this is an amazing one! Such good tips for cheap(ish) gear to use. Thanks so much for all your time and effort that goes into making these videos! And to the people you’re working with of course!!

  41. abhi dcooldude on June 28, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I have bought rode mic including cable for iPhone but it doesn’t seems any effective or may be an not using it correctly!!!!

  42. Tracie Osborne on June 28, 2022 at 12:31 am

    great video. I purchased the lapel mic and I used the adaptor for my iphone 10 and I am not hearing sound. I just purchased a lighting adapter to 3.5mm and there is still no sound. Do you have any suggestions of what accessory that I need?

  43. JJB TOYS on June 28, 2022 at 12:38 am
