    Take film?

    Hi
    How can I say this sentence?

    When you go there, Would you .... by your cellphone please?

    I mean to ask the person to take film by the cellphone. But I'm not sure if take film it's the right phrase.

    Would you tell me how you say it in English?

    Thanks and Regards

    You say "take" a picture with your cellphone...
    Could you please record a video for me with my cellphone?

    I think that makes more sense.

    In England, a cell phone is called a mobile phone, but as almost everone has one, you would just ask your friend to send you a picture (or, maybe a "picture message") of where they are visiting and they would know what you wanted.
