Mobile reporting: A field guide

24 Jul

Students at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism have put together a great field guide for mobile reporting. It walks through and rates viddeo, photography and audio apps and iPhone equipment.

It came about when “a small group of students at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism enrolled in an eight week mobile reporting course to experiment to see how far they can go only using their wits, drive and the smartphone in their pocket.”

We attempted find all the accessories that had potential to aid a mobile journalist in the field, then we bought them all. With shipments arriving every week and students armed with App
Store gift cards, we embarked on a quest to put the apps and gear to the test.

Here’s an example of one of the reviews
