How to make and put videos on your PDA.
But why would you want video on a PDA? The possible applications are numerous. From the video enthusiast showing off her portfolio of work, to the ad agency pitching a campaign to the couch potato on the road, PDAs alter how and where we watch video. It's always good to be prepared for the next big innovation in video technology, so here are some tips on how to make your video look its best on a PDA.
The Small Screen
When shooting for the small screen of the PDA, which is only a few inches in diameter, you should think big. Make everything as large as possible on the screen. Instead of shooting someone from the shoulders up, fill the viewfinder with their smiling face. If you are videotaping a parade, shoot a lot of close ups of marching feet instead of too many wide shots of the whole procession. When videotaping your pet parakeet, get in close to show off its beautiful colors. If there is too much happening in the video, it will be hard to tell what's on the screen.
