Today’s Wednesday Rigging is from Ben Hoffman. If you would like to see your rig featured, read the guidelines here then send me a picture of your rig!
Gear List:Canon 60d with battery gip on a Hondo Garage Barely Baseplate. Hondo Garage Fifty Dolor follow focus with big lens upgrade. Carry Speed swi-view LCDVF. Zoom H4n on hot-shoe via a extender (came with the cheep Target video light). Azden 990 shotgun mic and cheep video light from target on a flash bracket mounted onto rods via a single block. Friction arm with a pistol grip mounted from rods via another single block. All on top of the cowboy studio shoulder mount.Rig Description:I have the top handle for low shots, the H4n is over the lens because it is stereo! I don’t know why people would want to hear a interview in there left ear when the speaker is centered. The flash bracket offers another handle and mounting options. I have a hand strap on the camera because there is a great built in handle there on the camera! The battery grip is god. It lets you shoot for longer, it brings the camera higher, it offers more weight, it offers a place to mount a hand strap without a dumb plastic thing that screws into the 1/4in mount, and it’s great for stills and handheld video!– Ben Hoffman
Thanks Ben! What are your thoughts on Ben’s rig? I had not heard of Hondo Garage gear, so thats a new one for me.
