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.
It's like we shot it with the enlarging ray. >> LAUGH >> It's bigger. It looks exactly the same. Just bigger. >> Yeah that's true and then this is, I, I actually think there's another one big, a little bigger than even this one. >> Yeah. >> Now the cool thing about, you'll find about this one. Is that it just in your hands, is going to feel beefier and sturdier. You'll notice with these small ones, you can just kind of with one hand, kind of manipulate the legs >> Yeah. >> To move around. This definitely takes a couple hands to move them and kind of bend them in place. That's because it supports a lot more weight.
You'll also notice that the arms here are longer. >> And metal. >> And metal too. So that's going to give you more leverage if your wrapping them around things. Obviously the metal is stronger than the plastic. One of my favorite things is to take this over the top of a doorway and then position these on the other side of the door, and then of course with the tilt head it's pretty easy to angle that up and shoot, so you can see, we just hang that right on a door. Tighten it down and you've got the shot. Now I like these because they do have a standard tripod type mount. And rather than just attaching it directly to the camera I like to use some sort of head.
Now here, this is a mono-pod head which works well. >> Yep. >> Why don't you drop that in. >> Sure. >> Just flip that? >> Yep. >> And so now I can easily angel that from side to side. Or you can get a head that's fully articulating that's a ball head in positions as you see fit. >> Yeah. Now this is a black magic pocket cinema camera that we have on here. We've got kind of a medium sized lens. >> Yeah. >> And this is going to support that just fine. I would just be wary of about putting a full size DSLR or video camera with a big heavy lens and a follow focus and all that kind of stuff.
>> Right. >> Use some smarts about the situation. These are not meant to put your RLX on per se. They're more meant for smaller more manageable cameras that don't weigh a ton. >> All right, we've walked you through some of the sizes and options available. Let's shoot with these. We'll give you sort of an overview of the process. And then we'll take a look at the footage we got.
