Hmmm. What sort of video? Apartment? Retail? Big differences!

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
That should probably work with a cell phone. I would NEVER do a longer video shop without a body mounted, preferably button, camera. Be sure to practice, practice, practice to keep the target in the picture and to steady the phone in a pocket of handbag. It takes a lot to overcome hand tremors in cell phone video.

Video has to be minimum 15 minutes no longer than 20 I didn't even think about it and wonder if the camera stay on that long
That sounds like a shop that I know....... If it is, it required that I look through clothing, carry multiple items, speak with different associates, hang out in the changing room for five minutes.........
I would absolutely never do that shop with the cell phone app.

Talking tough is easy when it's other people's evil and you're judging what they do and don't believe.
I wanted to try it because right now I cannot afford to go buy Fancy video equipment and a couple that I've looked into renting charge a couple hundred just a rent so I wanted to try with my phone but I'm thinking maybe it's not a good idea and maybe I should cancel the shop
bowlingbabe6,
If you want to get into video, you should take a training class first. Look at VideoShoppingPros.com. Also, Greyhawk Video Solutions has a Greyhawk has the only preferred equipment used by the video shopping community and provides superior support after the sale.
There is nothing "fancy" about the PV-500 video rigs. They are THE industry standard. You will pay for your rig with about 5-6 shops. Do NOT buye from unknown sellers though. Dan is THE man. (He is Greyhawk Video.)
