Archived Chat: How to Use Your iPhone When Reporting

Wednesday, July 8, we chatted with WFOR-TV News Director Adrienne Roark and Investigative Producer Giovani Benitez to learn how to use an iPhone when reporting.

Benitez created quite a buzz a couple of weeks ago when he shot an entire story using the new iPhone.

The station said:

"At CBS4, we've received hundreds of e-mails and comments in the newsroom from viewers who were amazed at the quality of video when compared to images shot on professional cameras. By Tuesday, more than 10,000 people had viewed the story on; the following day that number had jumped to more than 17,000."

During the chat, we talked about the process that Benitez used. We also discussed and shared links to some tools that can help you when using an iPhone or mobile device to report.
