Film Reviews & Headlines

We get a ton of questions here
on the channel asking for tips… …on how to shoot better video
with a smartphone. because not everyone has access
to expensive cameras or DSLRs. However, it really doesn’t matter
which kind of camera that you have, as long as it just can record video. And we want to prove that today
by shooting an amazing video on this toy camera. -Yannick, catch! -Unboxing time! Woo! [Cinecom’s intro music] Hey folks, Jordy here for
and welcome to Creative Tuesday! Before we get into the unboxing
of our monster camera, I’d first like to thank Videoblocks
for their support today. If you ever need some stock clips,
After Effects templates, visual effects, motion graphics
or anything else, you can get it at Videoblocks. With a single price per year
you can download unlimited items from their growing library. To find out more, make sure to check out
the first link in the description below! So, here we have it,
the Kidizoom Duo. This right here is an 8K resolution camera
which can shoot at 120 fps in RAW format. This is state-of-the-art
technology right here. And it also comes with a headphone
that I’ve never seen before. Lorenzo, this one is for you,
so you can monitor my audio. A beautiful OLED display
IPS technology in there, it even has thumb controller
and two viewfinders right here. Look at that! That is just
true VR experience! And we got a ton of effects
in here, look at that. This, Premiere Pro even can’t do. Look at this, beautiful! Yannick, smile! These are enormous megapixels
here than I’m capturing, it’s unbelievable,
I’ve never seen… Ha, ha, ha! It’s very durable and sturdy,
you can drop it on the floor. -Yannick, catch! No, honestly, this camera sucks. It has a resolution of 320×240 at 15 fps. So, get prepared to see
some gorgeous pixels. [Music] One of the first things that any camera
can do is compositions, and that means arranging
your elements in the shot to a certain framing, for example
the rule of thirds. So what I’m looking here at the horizon
and those trees over there, I’m actually putting them inside of
my frame on the right side of my shot, and that horizon is going to be
on the bottom of my shot. And I’m dividing my shot into three parts,
both horizontally and vertically. Composition is the most important
aspect of better camerawork. Look at your subject and the surrounding
and try to align them properly. Make use of the rule of thirds,
which is this grid right here. Some cameras and a lot of smartphones
can overlay this grid. After some practice, you’ll be able
to imagine those guidelines. Use the vertical and horizontal lines
to align the different visual elements, like trees, horizons, people
or the eyes of a person when you’re making a close-up shot. [Music fades in] Video is actually a very flat subject,
is always 2D what you’re capturing. But you can add more depth to it by
always working with foreground objects, like Yannick is doing right here. Just gotta move a little bit with your
hands, go a little bit left to the right, and have a motion in there, a little difference
between your foreground and background. Another way to add more depth
to your shots is with lighting. You don’t need expensive lights, as there’s always an amazing
quality light available: the sun! I’m making sure the sunlight is always
coming from behind the subject, in other words: film
against the light. This way you’re adding more depth to your shots
as you wanna shoot against the shadow side. Now, of course it’s not always so easy
to shoot with the sun in the framing. So, you can also have the sun
on the side, out of your frame. Just make sure that the sunlight never comes
between the subject and the camera. It’s 30 degrees outside,
yet Lorenzo chose… to wear black pants
and long sleeves. [Music volume increases] Sound design is like the half of your
video production, it’s super important. And, for example, if you’re making
a long shot of some trees, then go also again a little bit
closer to those trees and just capture the sound
of those leaves separately, make those two together and you get
a very nice sound design in your video. [Windy trees sounds] Then, of course, also use sound libraries to get your sound effects
or foley, as it’s called. It’s not always so easy to capture
the right sound that you need and a lot of the times you’ll notice that
you need a certain sound in post-production. You have some paid sound
libraries, such as Audioblocks, which is another marketplace
from Videoblocks. Or you can also checkout,
which is a community-driven sound library and allows you to get
free sound effects. However, not every sound is what
you expected it do be on that website. -Pew! Pew! [Childish war sounds] Always take multiple shots
of an actions. If you film a person walking, take
some b-roll shots of maybe his feet, or a closeup of his face. Most of the time, cutting between
long shots and close ups work great. You can never get enough close-ups, as they
always come in handy when you’re editing. They can connect the different
shots together. And the transitions that you’re seeing
here are super simple. You swipe your camera
on the end of one shot and start swiping in
in your second shot. Connecting these two in post-production gives you a transition which adds
great dynamic to your videos. Just be creative with
these transitions! We actually have a video with 5 of such,
and I’ll leave a link to it in the description below. Now, taking the camera inside of our studio,
we can really play around with lighting. Here I’m taking some shots
of another camera. I’m placing a light
in the back, and… …this can even be a flashlight
if you don’t have film lights. With a $30 smoke machine
I fill up the room and you got yourself
an epic product video. And, you know, what really makes
things look awesome… …a heavy-duty slider! [Music] I’m gonna have some more
fun with my Kidizoom and I hope that you’ve got
some new insights, and… …again, an excitement to go outside
and shoot with your older camera. Thank you so much for watching,
thank you Videoblocks for the support and, like always… …stay creative! -If you shoot in 16:9 and you wanna
add crop marks to your shots to get that Cinemascope,
or the anamorphic scope, well, this right here is the
real-life version of that. If you want to see anamorphic, just
look through this hole right here, these are the crop marks
in real life.

  1. I find that being limited with what you have inspires creativity like nothing else. How do you make the best thing possible with the little resources you have. Honestly, I want to go out and get a cheap little camera like this and see what I can do with it. What kind of a story can I tell and how does the image quality support and work for said story? It is interesting

    Not sure why, but if you wanna buy this camera: search for 'kidizoom duo' 😆


  3. this could be a new medium for videography, a more simplistic pixel look that no one has seen before. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. Excellent ideas again guys, though that camera hurts my brain. Hey, is there anything that Premiere can do in post to clean it up or make it less pixelated?

  5. When you said 8K resolution, I was taken aback. Man! I must have been left behind. Camera technology has gone too far. But then you say – Nah! this shit shoots at 320×240 at 15 fps and we were in the game 😛 Love your videos Jordy. Wonderful presentation.

  6. how to match color grading on different monitors? because every monitor have different color calibration, so what to do for that to get same result of photosvideos on every monitor
