Lights Camera Content! The Surprising Truth to Camera Quality (video for financial Advisors)

09 Nov, 2022 BY Kyle Cyr

If you take away one thing from this blog it should be:

The price tag of your gear doesn’t define who you are as a financial advisor. 

Having the best gear doesn’t mean your video will be more memorable, just like having the nicest office doesn’t make you the best financial advisor.

I’d argue that you could change the lives of your clients from a broom closet.


Because you have years of experience, skills, and dedication to making those meaningful connections that impact lives.

That fundamental knowledge creates a solid foundation that you can stand on.

More so, you’re a financial advisor first, not a professional videographer or content creator.

If you’ve been following along in this blog series, you’re taking the right steps to lay a solid foundation for creating memorable videos. 


Debunking the Resolution Myth

The device you’re reading this on will most likely be all you need to create a high-quality video.

You might be thinking, “If the equipment doesn’t define the creator, then why even upgrade at all?”

Truth is, camera resolution is just a small percentage of what makes a video successful.

Prioritizing picture quality over the message and audio quality diminishes your content.

Think about TVs prioritizing “6k” and “8k” resolution, it’s just a buzzword to get you to buy their new product.

The reality is, the vast majority of content created from movies to online videos is typically filmed between 1080HD and 2.5k.

The quality difference your audience will experience is small considering they don’t have devices that support that kind of resolution.

If you want to get the most out of your equipment, try these simple upgrades.
