Zoom With Your Feet - iPhone Tip #2

Ok - here's another one of those "Must Know" tips I feel.   Don't zoom in on your subject with your iPhone when shooting video.  Resist this natural urge.  The reason is that the iPhone lens isn't zooming optically - it's zooming digitally so all you're doing is making the picture larger and that means pixelating the image.  Yuck.  Do old school and move in with your feet.  That's really the only way to keep the integrity and quality of the image.  Unless you move into using lens like the Olloclip lens which I haven't tried yet.  On a Side note:  There was a rumor article that the updated iPhone 6 will have a real optical image zoom.  We'll see.
