How to get outdoors and film your experience easily

I have always been envious of those that can create great video. It is truly an art.

So I have been known to swing by Matt Bertram’s studio at the station to watch the man create — and to check out all of his cool gear!

Sometimes I simply hand him my iPhone, he drops the new videos on to his computer and starts editing away.

One day it hit me: As cool as all of Matt’s gear is, my cell phone is keeping pace and it fits comfortably in my pocket.

There is no need to weigh ourselves down with professional gear when filming adventures outdoors. We’ve had all the basics we need in our pockets the entire time!
