How to Hold Your Phone When Shooting Video

·Tech Critic

In today’s Ask Pogue video, I’m not going to answer a reader’s email query. I’m going to answer 30 of them.

Seriously. I’ve received a lot of emails asking, why, for Pete’s sake, does anyone hold the phone vertically to capture video, when every playback device in existence (TV, YouTube, phone, tablet) has a horizontal screen?

The answer, I’m guessing, is because they’re not thinking about it. They will after watching this video!

And while I’m at it, there’s a little shout-out to people who record video with gigantic tablets at public performances.
