What's one of the best parts about being a video professional? All the cool gear! In this weekly series, Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman team up to discuss the latest and greatest equipment for video production and post. They talk about the newest cameras, like the Blackmagic 4K, pocket cinema cameras, and GoPros; accessories and adapters that will make your shoots run smoother; and the great tech being invented every day. And because they keep both cost and quality in mind, you'll never have to worry about blowing your budget or compromising production value. Come back every Friday for a new tip.
This series is from RHED Pixel. We're honored to host this training in our library.
We've pulled in a few shots from the mini tripods. I put a lot of focus on the iPhone because I'm quite surprised at how good this camera looks. >> Yeah, iPhone looks great but, of course, the mini tripods can be used for Go Pros, other very small cameras and we got a couple different shots here. I'll just click through 'em real quick so you can see what we got. That looks pretty good and this is actually, a clip we'll come back to in just a second, because you actually shot this in sort of slow-mo mode. >> Yeah. >> It's higher frame. >> It's 120p. >> Right. 120p, there you go. Let's see what else we got.
Oh, we got a good shot of her feet there. Let's see. Oh, oh. Doing some things that I could never, ever, ever in a million years do. >> It looks so much harder in fast motion. >> But the thing, the thing I like about this, especially, if we get it bigger, is that, you know, it gives you a unique perspective, because you can get the camera down so low and it's so compact. That perspective, you'd have to get other you know, by kind of lying on the floor with a full frame camera or a full size camera and it would be a hard shot to get. So I think this, you know, it comes into a perfect play with something like this and gosh, every time I look at this, I'm just, like, wow I cannot, I cannot do that.
but, you know, the thing about it, is these mini tripods are perfect for situations like these and you can even, I'm not saying you can't still control or zoom the camera when it's on the mini tripod. There you did a nice little zoom in, push in to the action there. Let's take a look at this slower shot because I think this is kind of cool. If I go ahead and play this back. >> It's playing back at 120p right now, so it looks like real time. Yeah, which is not quite what I want. So here's what I'm going to do real quick because this is kind of a fun shot, what I'm going to do is I'm going to take the shot and right click on it and I'm going to go down to Modify and then Interpret Footage.
And in Interpret Footage here inside of Premiere Pro, what I'm going to do is say, hey, you know what? Let's go ahead and assume this frame rate. It's going to say what frame rate do you want to use? >> 23976. >> Sure. Let's try that. 23976. And then we'll click OK and now things have changed up and now let's play this. We'll make this bigger, so we could see it again and let's see what we got. Now it's yoga in slow motion. So not only, we combined a couple of things here, which is pretty cool. >> Yeah. >> We combined sort of the flexibility and size of sort of the mini tripods or the small tripods but then we shot with an iPhone, which in this particular case, this iPhone that you have, which I think is a 5S, it gives us the slow motion capability and really nice perspective and really kind of a unique shot.
>> And I'm impressed at how well it's handling that edge light and the harsh back light that came through. >> Absolutely. >> But in slow motion, it's a pretty attractive little camera with a cool angle. >> Yeah, there's something to be said for iPhone, sort of the cimetography and videography but I think again, the thing that made this all happen, a little, tiny tripod. >> Yep. So there you have it. Make sure you consider putting this into your mix. Try getting the cameras in interesting places that you might not normally put them.
