Tripod for video shooting
on Jan 5, 2019 at 11:04:48 pm

Guys,

I need advice... I shoot small and weird videos, often inside, sometimes outside, for VJing with it after.

Now I would like to invest into a tripod instead of abusing a friend and yelling at them because they're shaking :P

I saw this offer for a tripod with the head: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/manfrotto-190xprob-stativ-804rc...

But I am wondering... better to buy this one, or go for a cheap new one?

I have a Canon EOS 800D/Rebel T7i

Thank you for your precious advice!


Best,
Pen

this is a tripod for still images.
A half decent tripod with fluid head is what you need if you want to do camera movements that are actually used.
But, that is way more expensive.

Hi Bouke!

Thank you for your help!
To be honest just a bit of panning should be enough. My main concern is that I do animations as well, so I would need something to film my table. I saw this one with a rotative column: https://www.vanguardworld.com/photo_video/products/tripods/veo-2-235ap.html...
Do you think it could film my animations and do just a little bit of panning from time to time? My videos are pretty simple, it's just for my VJ set, they are all very short, max 15 sec, but usually more 7 sec, and very experimental. But it shakes too much when we do by hands, and well, there is no real use that my friend is there expect holding the camera...
I think I don't really have a standard use as most videographer

Well, if it is good enough is for you to decide. You don't have to follow any rules, if you think it's good, it is.

But, in your case, I won't do pans, I would ride (or slide).
This is what every cam operator wants, but is most of the time too impractical / time consuming / expensive.

For animation it is cheap and simple. You can build a rig yourself from skateboard wheels, or just use an actual skateboard. An extra advantage is that you need less backdrop! And it looks so much better than panning.

Get a quick release clamp, something like this:

Or a couple, and mount them on anything you think it's practical.

Again, there are NO rules, only the end result is what counts. And since you work in studio environment, weight / portability / folding is not really important.

Check our Libec tripods. A lot of bang for the buck.

I wrote about one I bought some time back.
