With the explosion of HDSLR video and the accessibility of large-sensor camcorders, like Sony’s FS100, comes the need for support systems, both on and off a traditional tripod. In this seventy-minute video, Jem Schofield of the C47 explains why you would want to use these systems, and in which applications they are most helpful.
Schofield demonstrates the modular nature of rigging tools, in this instance showcasing Redrock Micro components. He explores everything from simple handheld rigs all the way through to complex shoulder-mount configurations, along with the use of matte boxes, external monitors and follow-focus systems. This comprehensive look at rigging your camera is enhanced with audience questions.
