With the arrival of cheaper video recording devices such as tablets, iPhones and prosumer camcorders, it is easy for anyone to create a video. Anyone can pull their phone out of their pocket and take an HD or even a 4K video these days. However, just because it can be done by anyone doesn’t mean it should be done – unless it’s purely for fun and not for serious business marketing purposes. Cameras on phones and ordinary digital cameras have limitations and there is so much more to shooting a video than simply pointing a recording device. For example: Is the lighting right? Will the audio be heard clearly without interference from air conditioning, traffic or other extraneous noises? Is the quality appropriate for the business and what it offers?
