Their are many things present in the camera settings and you should know the function of each and every option. Apart from that, the users should know about Focus and Exposure. Well, most of the smartphones support Auto Focus these a days, but if you place your finger for a while, then the AF will be locked and by moving the iPhone 6 towards the shooting object from a distance a nice touch can be provide to the video. On the other hand, exposure allows the user to control the brightness and lower the brightness, if there is already too much light present. This is also called as HDR.  Thus, it is quite important to understand these two factors.

Buy Lighting Kits:

This is a very necessary step. Most of the users shoot indoor videos and everyone knows that there is a lot of light already outside and thus, you need no more light–Sun is enough as a light source. But, when we come inside the scenario is totally changed and the light provided by your tube is not enough to make a professional video. So, our advice is that you should buy lighting kits and they are surely going to help.

The sliding tracks will also help you to shoot the horizontal videos and they are going to give you a professional touch. But, some of the sliding tracks can be very expensive as they are used for professional work. So, if you are not convinced with the camera dolly do purchase the Sliding track.

Last, but not the least. You have to buy a camera lens in order to get some high-end macro shots. These types of shot require a macro lens.
