When should you use a camera vs a mobile phone?

The quality of cameras in mobile phones has greatly improved in the latest generations of devices. Some of these cameras can capture 4K video and are comparable to some full size cameras. So when should you decide to pull your cell phone to record a video, and when should you stick to a traditional camera?

One of the first things you should consider is your budget. Hiring a professional film crew and production team for multiple days can get expensive pretty quickly. Grabbing a few mobile phones with high-end cameras can be a lower cost investment that can produce high quality footage without the cost.

Another thing to consider is the type of content you are looking to produce. If you're looking to wow your audience with stunning visuals, a professional camera team and the equipment and expertise they bring to the table is always the way to go. If your content is made to educate or go on your social media channel, grabbing a cell phone to capture the footage is a cost effective way to get the content you need.
