Open Camera App Tutorial – Filming with Android Camera Apps!

hey it's Justin Brown here from primal video recently we did a video talking about the best camera apps on Android and we narrowed it down to two for free apps we've picked open camera and for paid apps we've picked cinema 4k in this video we're going to take

a look at all the settings and the setup for open camera so that you can get the best results with your videos now it's really important to note here that this video isn't a complete review it's also not going to cover up every feature in the app there's

way too many but what we are going to do is show you step-by-step how to set up open camera for the best results for filming your video now it's really important here to not get overwhelmed with all the settings and features in the app there are so many

things that you can do and change and really tweak to get different results but what we're going to take you through is step by step the settings that you need to lock down into manual and a lot of them really replicate what you would find in a DSLR

or video camera so that you're getting the best results with filming your videos on your smartphones alright so we're here in open camera the first place to start is in the settings menu I'll just press up on settings here now and it's a good idea to go through

all the settings first get those locked down before we lock down your actual recording settings at the time of recording so the settings that we want to adjust here for video are down the bottom under video settings and we'll start off here at the top with video resolution

which is the quality of the videos that we're going to be creating so I'd always suggest that you pick at the highest for your device so here we're using a Google pixel XL which is a 4k camera in it so we have the ability to pick Ultra HD

4k next up is video stabilization you can turn this feature on or off if your phone supports it and you're going to be walking around or moving around with your videos while you're recording then it'll be a good idea to turn this on it will help take some

of the shake out of the videos know it look a bit more smoother if your video is going to be filmed on a tripod or lock down then I suggest that you turn this feature off turn that off here the next thing you need to set is the

video bitrate so how this works is the higher the number the higher the quality the larger the file size so I'd recommend it here you're using at a minimum 20 megabits per second so the quality is decent but the higher the number the higher the quality so if

you can and your device supports it then record at 50 megabits per second or right up to 100 megabits per second but as I said this will choose more data as well so if you don't have much recording space or free space in your phone then opt for

50 or 20 if you need to if you've got the space the storage capacity delete whatever photos or videos that are on your phone if you can and film at the highest quality that's supported by your phone so we're going to pick 100 megabits per second here next

up is the frame rate so this is the number of images per second to make up your video so if you're in Australia or the UK then you want to be selecting 25 frames per second if you're in the US then you'll want 30 frames per second now

once again depending on your phone you can also select higher frame rate so 25 and 30 are standard frame rates for video but you can also pick 60 96 100 or 120 or even higher depending on the phone so things like 120 frames per second a class's slow

motion so depending on your phone depending on what it's capable of you may see some different options here but just for creating regular videos 25 if you're in Australia or the UK or 30 if you're in the US will be the best starting place it's a good idea

to check the maximum duration of the video here and make sure that it's set to unlimited the last thing you want to have happen is you're halfway through a video and find that you've hit a limit but you didn't know existed so set it to unlimited and you

won't have a problem and it's also a good idea to disable restart on maximum file size so we can turn that off on the side there now you will want to make sure that recording audio is enabled so that you're going to get audio through either from the

built-in microphone in your device or from an external microphone and then on the next one down we're going to pick the audio source we open that up and we get to choose camcorder which is the built-in microphone on your device external microphone if you've got a plug in

microphone or a lapel microphone you're going to plug directly into your phone or you could just select default audio source and whichever is plugged in will work so if you don't have a microphone plugged in it will automatically default to the internal microphone if you plug in an

external microphone then it will default to that personally I don't like leaving any of these settings up to the app to decide so for me I'm going to be using an external microphone I'll pick external microphones so those are all the settings that you need to change to

get the best results now there are a lot of other settings in here and especially back in this other menu if you'd like to tweak and refine the app further for you but in regards to creating awesome videos these are the ones that you have to lock down

okay so now we're going to lock down all the settings for our current shot so at the top here we can switch between front camera and back camera the next one across here will switch between photo and video obviously we're going to want video enabled next up we're

going to adjust the white balance or the color temperature of our shot and lock that down so if we come up here to the three dots you'll see here this is what comes up we've got our camera resolution our video resolution so that we can quickly check that

our camera is set to the right resolution and you can see our white balance here is set to auto now have a play around here and see which is the best for your shooting location these are the same presets that you'd find in most cameras so for us

we're going to lockdown florescent because that matches the lights that we're using in this scene now you don't want to leave this thing to auto because that means potentially the colors could be changed throughout your filming which isn't ideal you'll also get the option in here for different

scenes things like landscape snow Beach other ways that you can lock down your colors and you can also apply different color effects if you'd like to here personally I'd steer clear of all the color effects and even the scenes I would just stick with the white balance settings

the next thing that we need to lock down is the exposure or the brightness of the shot now we can press up here and we can slide this to make it darker or brighter where I'd recommend that you start is actually by touching on areas of the screen

to pick the areas that you want to expose for so you can pick the area of the screen that matches the brightness that you're after and then if you're after further adjustment then come up here and slide this slider up or down to make a finer adjustment once

you're happy with the overall brightness or the exposure of the shot then press a little padlock up here and that will lock your exposure then the last thing that we need to lock down is our focus so if we click those three dots up here again this second

row here with the a the Infinity macro and lock are the focus settings so a is for auto and they'll set your camera focus to be automatically changing the next one is infinity which will set it to the farthest focus point possible macro will set it to a

close focus point and the padlock will lock down our focus so what we'll do here to lock down the focus I'll bring my hand in here will focus on my hand and then we come up here to the three dots and we will choose lock focus and now

our focus is locked at that point so no matter where we move our camera or adjust our shot that is now our locked off focus point so those are all the settings you need to adjust into lockdown for best results with open camera now one more quick tip

before you record your videos is that you do a quick test so record a fifteen to twenty second clip to make sure that your audio is working that your shot is looking the way that you want play it back make sure you're happy with it before you get

into your full recording so there you have it that's how you can set up and use open camera for your videos if you found this video helpful we'd really appreciate you hitting that big subscribe button and giving this video a thumbs up and linked on screen now is
