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.
Hey there. I'm Robbie Corman. >> And I'm Rich Harrington. >> And Rich, this week we want to talk about something I find that I use all the time, to be honest with you, and that is a tripod mounted slider. >> Yeah, it's a small, compact system that essentially turns your tripod into a slider, and it's designed to be easy to pack up, and able for one person to operate on their own. Now that's not to say that a full size slider, can't be operated by one person. >> Well, that's a, that's a good distinction, because there are of course, full size sliders that mount to a tripod.
I guess I should have been a little more detailed with my description there, a compact-. >> Yes. >> Tripod slider. You'll find sliders, you know, in two, three, four foot increments, even bigger, but putting one of those on top of a tripod, well, that's pretty big, and when it comes to things like travel, breaking that down can be difficult. So, a system like this, which is nice and compact but extends pretty far in either direction of the center point of the tripod, is really nice for getting those sliding shots, but also for traveling and having the compact kit.
>> So up next, we're going to walk you through how to build and assemble one of these. And then we'll give you some shooting techniques.
