If I was trying to sell a $M+ boat, I'd use something better than my phone to create a video
If something is worth watching I send it to the tvSo, this is a thing now. The portrait format is becoming popular because majority of people are watching content from phones. The wide screen format is more for laptop/PC viewing and is not the predominant format any longer. Especially for short form content. You can thank tiktok, youtube reels, facebook shorts and Instagram videos.
