[Width, not depth, wins the day] [ThingLink] [Steller] [Storehouse][360 Panorama] </li><li> 10. [The 3sssss of mobile challenge] Sound: The native mic is awful and susceptible to both floor and handling noise Sensor: The sensor handles light badly and theres an exaggerated exposure gap Stability: The platform is too light for the shooter to effectively self-stabilize </li><li> 11. [Sound workarounds] Good: Use an app like FiLMiC Pro ($4.99) that allows level monitoring and a wired hand mic that connects to a TRRS splitter and goes into the headphone jack. Better: Use the app plus an iRig Pre ($40) that serves as a pre-amp, providing power and an XLR input to the phone. Best: Use the app plus the iRig Pro ($150), a pre-amp that also converts the mics analog signal to digital. </li><li> 12. [Light workarounds] Good: Slavishly obey the 180-degree rule of lighting (if the light is touching the videographers shoulders, its all good) Better: Use the phones LED or a phone-mounted light to fill shadows (but be careful of it being too strong) Best: Use an accessory light or reflector to light from the side </li><li> 13. [Stability workarounds] Good: Make the world your tripod. Use wall leans, tables, shelves, etc., to stablize Better: Use a phone frame with hand grips, such as the BeastGrip or the iOgrapher Best: Use a phone frame and a tripod </li><li> 14.
