Volume on Video Reviews

MamaDivine MamaDivine
I know that I posted about this somewhere else...can't recall where...but I think that it should be said here as well.

I ALWAYS watch a video review on a product. The more information/view that I can get, the better. The only problem is, about 90% of the video reviews that I have seen don't have hardly any volume on them at all! I have to usually have headphones on, and crank those up, along with cranking up my laptop volume just to hear a whisper of what someone is saying. Please please please....if you are doing a video review, make sure to have your volume/mic settings up. I have also noticed that if you do a review via a phone/camera video....the volume is much better!

The first video review that I did was with a digital camera video setting. It worked great and I can hear myself loud and clear in the video. Just trying to throw that out there so others know.

I wonder about this sometimes too, if people watch their videos before uploading them.

If (generic) you do a video review, before you upload it, watch it again later.

I haven't done a video review in a while. (Middle kid was home with only a part time job until starting Grad School last month for nearly 8 months, and my little one was home all summer and I had no privacy during the day.)

But, when I did them I always watched them and re-edited them several times before uploading them. I use a camera as well, and I make sure I am projecting. I can't stand videos with "low talkers" because I can't understand what they're saying. Watching someone mumble while handling a vibrator is not a good video review IMO.

Another suggestion for those who talk softly could be to add subtitles.

I try to talk normal, but my voice really carries, so I try to tone it down some. The last thing I want to do is ring the viewers ears.

Yeah, I was able to watch my review back on my computer before I uploaded it. I want to make sure that I was able to get the product in the photo and everyone could hear me. I found that my digital camera is best when doing the reviews. I know that some folks don't have that option (they use a webcam) which is fine too, as long as you watch it before you upload it lol.

My problem was that my camera tended to jump around a bit too much because I had one hand holding the camera, and one holding the product lol

I agree. The whole reason that I watch a video review is to get a better handle on what the product is all about. If I want to view photos and not hear what they are talking about, might as well just read through a written/photo review. No difference
