Give Your Camera The Support It Requires

News Image
Having invested a small fortune on a new camera and lenses it's important to provide your set-up with the support it requires to bring your productions to life.

With a world of options available let's take a quick look at three items that would be highly recommended.

The tripod is your bread and butter camera support and the emphasis should be on something that is well made, reliable and lightweight.

A great option, at a medium low price bracket, is the Manfrotto MVH502A, 546GBK tripod kit which is supplied with a padded transit bag.

With a fluid video head and a high quality set of legs this tripod is a great solution and will support camera set-ups that weight up to 6kg.

A camera slider was unheard of just a few years ago but it is now a staple for most cameramen and allows you to get stunning shots without the need to set-up big tracking systems.

Edelkrone offer a great range at a premium price but for a similar style of slider at a lower cost take a look at the Hague Camslide Reach.

Designed to extend as it slides the new Camslide Reach offers great flexibility at a more affordable price.

A stabilizer allows you to get moving shots and that true floating feeling.

Ideal for following a subject or moving around people the Steadicam type stabilizers have now become a cost effective solution for everyone.

Stabilizers are designed for different sizes and weights of camera so have a look at our stabilizers section and see what unit would best suit your camera.
