The Solution for Shooting videos for Social Media Platforms

Share this POST

Shooting for social media used to be quite simple. We just take our camera, set it to shoot in 16:9  aspect ratio, 4K resolution and we can post edit it.


The popularity of TikTok just makes shooting for social media a bit complicated. Most of us would just focus on one way – to shoot vertically or horizontally – based on where most of our audiences are. But there is a better way as shared by Chris Hau.


If your camera is able to shoot in anamorphic aspect ratio of 4:3, cropping into YouTube 16:9, TikTok 9:16, Instagram 4:5 or even 1:1 is now made easier without losing too much resolution.


This is really a good tip. Besides if you have an anamorphic lens, you can shoot it in 2.35:1 cinematic style too!
