The majority of photographs and video probably get taken on smartphones now, which is why companies are investing so much in technology around these areas. I know that I’m very impressed with the video quality on my iP7+ and some of the images we put up on Outdoor Revival are from phones, I can see a time when a lot more content on Outdoor Revival is generated via phone camera’s and the trusty DSLR’s and Camcorder and the like will get relegated to the shelf or draw.
Because they’ve become so popular the accessories are multitudinous, and there’s a big push to get phones as usable as cameras, this leads us to video stabilization equipment, and the SMOVE seems to be a great bit of kit for holding things steady while filming. The auto follow and 360 degree settings are great as well.
