Recording Video from a Mobile Device

You may record video from your mobile device using your device's built-in camera.


Depending on your assignment or your subject matter, you may wish to use an external microphone and a tripod. A tripod will improve stability, preventing your video from appearing shaky. An external microphone is helpful for improving audio quality, especially if your subject(s) is further away from the camera.


The eLis department at University Hall offers students and faculty an array of audio and video equipment for short and long term (on special request) loan at no cost. For more information regarding this service please click here
