With more reporters finding themselves working away from the office, many will be turning to mobile journalism (mojo) to film their stories.
However, those unfamiliar with using their mobile cameras to film could end up with poor audio quality, bad lighting, or all sorts of other technical difficulties.
Marc Blank-Settle, mobile journalist and BBC trainer, shared on Twitter some tips used by BBC journalists for using iPhone in journalism - though many are transferrable to Android devices and PNg is a BBC in-house app.
Handy tip: be sure to turn your phone to 'Do Not Disturb' so that your recording is not disrupted by any incoming calls.
With so many people now needing to film on their phones, this might be of use. It’s made for BBC staff (PNG is our own app) but you can use these tips & even save this to your own device too. #mojo pic.twitter.com/bmxsYUecMT— Marc Blank-Settle (@MarcSettle) March 22, 2020
