Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting a stand or tripod, part of Tethered Shooting Fundamentals.
Now, you need to put that table somewhere, and the good…news is, is you probably have some production equipment that's well suited.…You could take a standard tripod, and if you…need something that's ultra portable, this is going to work well.…You've got a thread mount here that usually the tripod head connects to.…Well, there's a hole right here on the bottom that does the exact same thing.…And I can just line that up.…Put that onto the tripod itself here, there we go.…And with a couple of quick…spins that goes right down and it's going to work.…Now that's fine and if I needed a portable solution I'd go…that route but it's not the most solid piece of equipment I have.…
So let's pull that out and instead Imma take advantage of a classic C stand.…Now a C stand is a pretty heavy piece…of equipment with really solid legs on the bottom.…This is designed not to tip over. It's heavy.…It's solid.…It's got a wide base and you don't have to worry about it coming undone.…So you see there, that's really solid.…And I've got the thread here so I could just drop that right on.…
These techniques work well both in the studio and in the field, so you'll be prepared for all tethered shooting scenarios.
