Metro Detroit Video Production Company Talks Tripods
Hey there and welcome to another episode of Tips & Tech Talk. I am your host, Ron, founder and owner of Ron Robinson Studios, Metro Detroit video production company. Today I want to talk about one of the most underrated pieces of gear for shooting video, the tripod. In some cases, the tripod is more important than the camera you’re using. Why? Because the tripod holds the camera in place so you don’t get any shakiness with your video.
You might notice when you’re out shooting video with your hand, with a strap around your neck or even with a handheld tripod or a monopod, you’re not going to get the stability that you get with a tripod. But the reason that I think you should do more research when you’re buying a tripod is because they come in all different shapes and sizes.
You can get a tripod for your smartphone, tablet or you can get a smaller tripod that will fit on a table. You can get a tripod like this, which is kind of like a GorillaPod. You will get much versatility with a tripod like this. And then you have a traditional tripod like this, which is a Sunpak Ultra 6000PG. The fact is it took me about six months of research to find the right tripod that I needed to use for the Cannon 80D.
This is the 64 inch tripod/monopod pod by Neewer. I guess this is kind of like an unboxing as well.
This tripod monopod is going to give me a lot of versatility when I’m shooting video and photographs with my Canon 80D.
It comes in a nice little case.
It’s the Neewer 64-inch aluminum alloy camera tripod/monopod with a 360-degree ball head. Sounds pretty high-tech. But the fact is, this is the tripod/monopod-in-one, and it gives me a lot of versatility when I’m shooting video or photography with my Canon 80D. So as you could see, tripods and monopods come in a lot of different shapes and sizes, so make sure you do your research.
If you don’t have the right tripod for the job, you’re not going to get the video or photography that you might want to get. Go online and search for the tripod that is right for you. It might be a smaller tripod, or maybe you need a bigger tripod, maybe you have a big video camera.
Remember to make sure when you do your research to find out how much weight your tripod can hold and find out how much your camera weighs. Make sure you do your research. A lot of folks will spend money unnecessarily on the wrong tripod. Do your homework, do your due diligence, do the same kind of quality research that you did when buying your camera or your smartphone.
Like I said, these monopods and tripods come in a lot of different shapes and sizes so make sure you find the one that’s right for you. I hope you liked this video. I hope you liked the crying babies. I hope you liked the birds that we’re trying to get in the video. Maybe the plane that went across. This is the magic of shooting outside.
