A stable camera makes for a great shot.  In this video Alex gives you the basics on different tripods and other mounts – including cool shots while driving!  He covers:

  • a standard tripod that extends to 7 feet
  • a desk-top version
  • a monopod he used for his documentary in Tanzania
  • a gorilla-pod
  • a glif
  • and a mount suitable for filming both inside & outside a car

During the first portion of the video Alex covers the “what” about tripods & mounts, and in the second part, just for our  DIY Video Club members, he takes everyone outside to do some experimenting and shows the “how”.  Although this video is a bit long (especially for one from Alex), we encourage you to watch the end!
