  • Never shoot vertically with your phone unless you know it is a special model (Blackberries, many feature phones) as that will creat a vertical video with way too much wasted black space on either side of the HORIZONTAL screen it will be shared on (and when you waste that much space on a tiny 2 inch/5cm phone screen there’s not much left to look at)
