As I mention in the video, it is important to have a stand-alone tripod head for use with sliders, dollies, jibs and other gear. I’ve found this Manfrotto 128LP Fluid head to be one of the best affordable video heads out there.
I film A LOT of b-roll. I’ve used several different setups over the years and recently found this to be one of the best rig configurations to shoot with.
Anti-twist plates are important. Without some way to lock your camera down your DSLR will swivel left and right while mounted to your quick release. This becomes a big problem when you try to use a follow focus. While there are many different anti-swivel plates out there, this new one from Photography and Cinema is brilliant. It mounts directly to your quick release plate making it easy to use and without the bulk that other anti-twist plates suffer from.
No pricing information is available yet, but I’ll keep you guys posted.
There are a ton of new lenses and deals going on at the moment so I thought I’d put together a post for you guys.
This insane lens was announced a while ago, but pricing and availability are in. Looking forward to getting a review unit in for review.
Availability: July 31, 2013
I’ve been using some of this gear from 4 DSLR for a while now, thought I’d share it with you. They make 2 great accessories for the H4n and Manfrotto tripod heads.
