Best Smartphone App & Equipment for Video

At Films4Life, we know that many of us cannot simply afford the luxurious camera equipment available so we are restricted to using our portable camera devises, our smartphones. 

But, this does not mean we are all restricting our video quality. We have found affordable apps and smartphone equipment for all iPhoneographers!
