Good audio is important to the overall quality of your video. If someone can't hear you easily, they'll likely tune out. There are lots of options. These lavalier microphones are designed to work with smartphones. A wired microphone is the most affordable option. If you want to be able to move around a wireless can be really nice! (You can use this wireless option with your phone, camera and even computer!) You'll need an adapter for the lavalier to work with your computer. The Yeti microphone is a USB mic that plugs into your computer.

If you want to move and not make anyone seasick, a stabilizer can make a big difference! A true stabilizer is motorized and has a gimbal so it stabilizes the video even if you're a little shaky. It can give you smoother and more stable shots. However, there is a little bit of a learning curve so just be prepared to do some practice to get good! The 1st and 2nd options have gimbals. The 3rd option does not have a gimbal and is not motorized so it won't be as smooth. But it can be a handy phone holder that's a little more stable and comfortable than holding the phone with your hand and should help keep your arm from getting as tired.
