One thing that bugs me the most is watching people records videos in portrait or vertically using their phones or tablets. I was going to write a long post about it, luckily found a video on YouTube that sums up everything I wanted to say.

There is no good reason to record videos in  portrait. it’s not static photography. Some may argue that they can then be consumed on phones but lets be honest turning it 90° is what you do most of the time when watching YouTube.

In summary:

  • You’re eyes are side by side not one on top of each other.
  • Wasting bandwidth by having black space in widescreen formats.
  • Anything you record in portrait dies in your phone unless you’re an estate agent editing videos for your front window lol.
  • Just really annoying once you know everything above.
