(Philadelphia, PA.) -NABJ CONVENTION--Talk about 21st Century Reporting!
Look who's getting"smart" about their "smart phones!" Ready or not, more backpack journalists are getting the job done without all of that antiquated, big, bulky gear.
That's right kids, 21st century journalists are taking "smart reporting" to a whole new level with their with their smart phones. Recently during the National Association of Black Journalist Convention in Philadelphia Alabama Power's Keisa Sharpe was just one of hundreds of journalists jammed packed into a new technology session which showed reporters how to shoot an actual news report on our I-phones.
Check it out, that's a tiny lavaliere microphone with an actual windscreen. Also, the tripod fits the I-PHONE "like a glove" with the help of a special brace you can find at any local camera shop. The microphone will only set you back about $20-dollars.
In 2011 news is immediate and breaking news is essential! This workshop is designed to give journalists an overview of the technology and applications that allow journalists to share video content with their mobile devices. We're talking live streaming, breaking news situations for independent journalists who are busy dominating social media sights and their blogs.
