Frequently Asked Questions

Should I record vertically or horizontally?

The horizontal format is far superior to vertical when showing most things in daily life. For instance, scenes that have more than one person involved, or those that include dynamics and motion, are never vertical. They also can't be as effective as they are in a horizontal video.

Should I record in portrait or landscape?

Well, mostly cats. The problem is that too many of us are shooting these videos in portrait mode. And it's the most annoying thing to hit YouTube since the yelling goats.

How does a periscope work and what are its uses?

Periscopes have long been used in order to see the objects that are not in direct line of sight. Periscopes are optical devices that use the laws of reflection. Simple periscopes use two mirrors inclined at an angle of 45 degrees while complex ones use prisms instead of mirrors providing magnification as well.

Why do you need a 45° mirror in a periscope?

It’s important that your mirrors are placed at a 45° angle, because light always reflects away from a mirror at the same angle that it hits it. In a periscope, light from an object strikes the top mirror at 45° and bounces off at the same angle. This sends light directly down the tube and onto the lower mirror.

How do you cut a window out of a periscope?

Use a craft knife to cut off the top of each carton. Using a marker, draw a square at the bottom of each carton. These will be the windows of the periscope. Use the craft knife to cut along one of the sides of the window. (The students can cut out the rest of the window using scissors.)

Submarines have periscopes so that people inside can what is on the surface of the water. A periscope is a useful example of the law of reflection at work. It’s important that your mirrors are placed at a 45° angle, because light always reflects away from a mirror at the same angle that it hits it.
