    I like the Beastgrip Pro! Yes, it’s more expensive, but attachment options are nearly limitless, AND you can attach Pro lenses! For $250, and your iphone, you’ve got a really nice alternative to the much more expensive M50 route!

    I know this video focuses on just the camera lenses on your phone, but with the right investment, this could free up $$$ needed on other vital equipment to get a YouTube channel started, and off the ground!

  3. Peaches X Dean on June 6, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Nice! we are actually at this point, new channel! this is very helpful

  5. Lazar Marković on June 6, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Why these morons don’t show them using it instead just the set up? 5th video and still no example…

  6. tee jay on June 6, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Getting a phone with a good video camera at an affordable price is the hardest nut to crack

  8. dk062787 on June 6, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Can I use the ulanzi and the gorilla pod together? Do they connect with each other?

  9. Jessica Sikich on June 6, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    This has helped me so much

  10. All Over Winnipeg. on June 6, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    One problem is I don’t want something so noticeable when doing walking video. Problem with my smart phone is it doesn’t record the way I want it to. It kind of crops the video so you don’t get full picture when recording. Kind of makes video smaller. My only video is an example of that. Update: Aprently if I hold the phone upwards it doesn’t record wide. If I hold the phone side ways and record it works very good 👍

  14. Gucci_Panda on June 6, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Why 30 frames instead of 60???

  15. disorient 0 on June 6, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    No, the Adapter is what’s 8 dollars, not the Tripod itself. Come on dude.

  16. SpanishBarbie on June 6, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    straight to the point, simple, very helpful ! my front camera lens makes me look weird, like my face is bent. how can I fix that?

    Could I get a mobile phone tripod that may be twistable around a tent pillar of some kind of outside automobile rearview mirror or stand or attachment I guess I’m just asking if there’s any tripod that I could use that actually twist around a rod that more be like a pillar or a ride to a tent or some kind of opening instead of just a tripod stand alone

    3:29 how are we supposed to see how the light works when you’re sitting by a window. Trickery

  25. The Watercolor Classroom - Becky Gromlich on June 6, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    I am an watercolor artist and my camera is always pointing straight down. I tried a Rode Lavallière Go mic but that made my brush sound like a loud scraping on the paper and when I rinsed the brush it was so loud it was like a dob drinking water. I think a straight shot mic would be best but what can I mount it on so it points towards me and not towards the paper and paint. I have listened to a TON of videos and no one addresses this problem.

  26. Going Frugal Now on June 6, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    What’s with you people, can’t you present your info without looking like some spastic moron with your hands flying all over the place.

    How can I get this accessories

  28. Mitzu on June 6, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Thank you for the info!! BIG QUESTION, Do you think the Ulanzi vl49 will be a good lightning for recording on a room?

  29. Rob K on June 6, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Shawn,

    Apologies if I spelled your name wrong. In your intro, I see a large mount behind you that looks like maybe a mount for an iPad. Have you found one with a similar build for an iPhone 6/7/8/SE2? Thanks!

  30. overton duncan on June 6, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Great tips for Instagram and Youtube

  31. Rob K on June 6, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Hi Everyone,

    I apologize for disagreeing with your recommendation for using the Vastar mount for iPhones for action shooting, but It looks like the iPhone will fall right out of the mount if I start running with the mount in hand. Does anyone have a better mount suggestion for actual hardcore action shooting?

    Thank you!

  32. Matt Augenstein on June 6, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you so much 😊

  33. janie1624 on June 6, 2022 at 9:47 pm
