Nowadays you can conveniently record travel videos using a digital camera, mobile device, or any other type of video camera. However a lot of the time the quality of that video may not live up to your expectations, and it may fall short and look far less impressive than you hoped.
If you’d like to improve the quality of the travel videos that you record and make them more impressive, there are a few tips that you should try to take advantage of:
- Find ways to keep the camera steady
Keeping the video camera steady while recording travel videos can be challenging, and circumstances on the road will often make it difficult. That being said you should try your best, as it will have a big impact on the quality of your video.
A good place to start is to hold the camera with both hands and with your elbows close to your side when you record. In some cases it may be helpful to use a tripod stand or camera holder of some kind that can keep your camera steady while you record videos.
- Record at a high frame rate
The one camera setting that you should adjust when you’re recording travel videos is the frame rate – and ideally you should increase it to up to 60 frames per second if possible. A higher frame rate will let you record smoother video, especially when there is any movement in the frame.
That being said because this will increase the video file size of your recordings, you will need to make sure you don’t run out of storage space.
- Don’t forget about the audio quality
People often overlook the audio quality of travel videos, which can be less than ideal if you record audio using the built-in microphone on most video cameras. Generally you have two options: Use a high quality microphone to record better audio, or use background music to replace the audio or drown it out.
It is up to you how you want to handle it, but the important thing is to remember that the quality of the audio will impact the overall quality of your travel video too.
While these tips can help you to record high quality travel videos that are more impressive, they are still unlikely to be ‘perfect’. That is why it is important to edit and improve the raw travel video footage that you record, and Movavi Video Editor will be able to help you out in that regard.
