My DSLR rig

14 04 2010

It is said that video with bad audio can kill an otherwise good story. If you have bad audio, you’re more likely than not to stop watching the video.

In weddings, speech, words, laughters and cries are all too honest and sincere. Of course you can hear all these in everday life, but it’s different in wedding environments. And when using DSLR in weddings, audio is a major issue.

With that in mind, I have set up a rig that allows me to use my DSLR and record clean audio at the same time using my Zoom H4n. Here’s a quick picture I took last night.

This rig can easily be mounted on tripods, glidecam or my shoulder mount. But I’m thinking of modifying it to make it into a handheld rig. I will post update as / when / if I get around it.

Here’re a few more pictures showing my rig on my tripod, glidecam and shoulder mount.
