    Very helpful. Thank you.

  8. mohammed bentaleb on March 14, 2023 at 2:35 am

    really good video, thanks! and i’ve subscribed I get quite a bit of audio background hiss when using an external mic with my samsung galaxy, which you seem to get as well in your audio when you switch from voice over to testing the external mics. Do you know a way to resolve this other than background noise reducing when you are processing the video in something like imovie? I’m assuming the microphones are just very sensitive and picking up electrical signals…

  9. BritHikesOntario on March 14, 2023 at 2:38 am

    Thanks for a great video. Have been looking over a few of your videos with interest. I do vloggy type nature videos out in parks and such, usually in a bit too much of a hurry to spend ages on setting up shots, often winging it, but I try and videos like yours inspire me to maybe try harder lol.

    I just got the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and unfortunately my Smooth 4 can’t handle the weight (it’s fine if the battery is full, but it won’t balance once the first couple of squares of battery have gone).

    I’m fighting with wind a lot of the time and would like to have a mic. So my question is, do you think the Smooth 5 would balance my phone (about 280g) if it was shifted out of place a little in order to fit a smaller wireless microphone receiver into the usb port? I’m thinking probably the Comica BoomX-DUC2 because it’s higher end but also small. Do you think this configuration would work?
    Thank in advance

    Very insightful video as usual !! You mentionned using filmic pro with pixel 6 pro. Do you know by any chance is 24 FPS is avaiable on that device using filmic PRO?

  20. Unearthed UK on March 14, 2023 at 2:53 am

    Love the content! new sub here!

  21. Edith Flood on March 14, 2023 at 3:01 am

    You have just diagnosed an issue I had with an ND filter in still photography many decades ago that plagued me for two years until I sold that camera, a 6X6. It was the filter that was causing the dark section in the middle of my shots… I always thought it was the development process or light leakage in the camera. But could never find the cause. I sold the filter with the camera and the trouble disappeared. All this time to work it out…amazing.

  22. Shari Barnes on March 14, 2023 at 3:02 am

    What is the best gimbal for an iPhone 13 Pro Max with small rig cage and lens? I have tried several and none of them handle the payload.

  23. Faj on March 14, 2023 at 3:03 am

    last i checked in ulanzi they no longer have the x2 telephoto lens

  24. James on March 14, 2023 at 3:04 am

    Hey Simon another great and helpful video thank you. I also have a Note 20 ultra and just received the moment anamorphic lens. It seems that they haven’t made a moment app for android.. would i need filmoric pro to get the results i’ve seen everywhere else but my phone? haha

  25. TAMBAYAN02 on March 14, 2023 at 3:05 am

    what microsphone you use for smart phone or for your content ?

  26. Professorvapes on March 14, 2023 at 3:06 am

    great video thanks for making this. unfortunately there is not much I can afford here but it did give me some idea of what I would like if I ever get the cash together I think top of my list would be a gimble or maybe a wide angle lens. too many things here I would love but you did a great job of explaining things Thanks Have a great new year. subbed

  27. Micah Omoria on March 14, 2023 at 3:06 am
