I use my phone for quick clips and a canon dsl with tripod for better quality.
IMO nothing beats professional videography. I had a friend of mine from church who does video for a living do some for me. He had the lights, microphones, cool sliding tripod and how to edit. They came out great.

GoPro is good. True uses it. I prefer my iPhone 7+ because its so easy and advanced these days. Just a learning curve with GoPro but you can attach it to your machine or tools and get cool shots.

If you are fighting shaky video, consider a gimbal like: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/705-5...0001&campid=5337618551&icep_item=232417186051

Video:
Not cheap, but the low mass of smartphones and gopros with the lack of stabilisation makes for shaky video.I have the same problem myself and will be getting a gimbal once funds allow for it. You could tie the gopro to something heavy and that can also help as your body won't be able to jerk the camera as much. I don't have any footage to share unfortunately.

What is your mouthpiece spending plan? So as to get a decent quality mouthpiece, you will most likely need to go through a lot of cash.

im assuming this is for a website, etc. I too had a person I know that is really good at photography do the videos on the latest Iphone. She is taking classes in photography and her teacher was the person that put all the clips together. Dont make it too complicated

I used go pro before but it depends on the shot I am working on. I recommend using go pro for sports-type video but if we have a regular type of promotion just a canon dslr would do.

I agree about the fact that phone videography is very popular nowadays. Anyone now can buy a phone and start this journey without purchasing a expensive exuipment and video camera (which as I know can cost all together more than 10k usd.) So, I am from that group of people who buy a nice smartphone (like Sony Xperia 1 II/ Google Pixel 4/iPhone 12 Pro Ma), get a nice app for editing the video like Movavi Clips. If you look for a editing program for beginners try movavi.com.
