Tripods & Supports
Tripods & Supports
Tripods & Camera Supports extend the conditions of your camera or camcorders use and provide a stable support that will enhance production values.
A tripod will improve the visual quality significantly by providing a solid support for the camera whilst giving a smooth, fluid pan-and-tilt motion. Tripods also provide greater stability for lower and higher shots that are often difficult to achieve hand held. The type of tripod that you buy is dependant upon the weight of the camera and any accessories you may add to it and you should ensure that the tripod you buy is capable of supporting your kit without compromising its performance. Should you have any doubts regarding the compatibility of a suitable tripod or support system please contact our sales team for advice.
External Movement Absorbers
The tripod legs play a vital role in dampening out vibrations. Carbon fibre is more effective at absorbing outside movement than their metal counterparts and also has the advantage of being lighter, and is therefore popular with videographers on the move or on location.
Tripods are available in many varied configurations from ENG kits to Studio Pedestals depending upon your application.
CAMERA SLIDERS and TRACK SYSTEMS
Track systems have been used in Video Production for years and offer smooth and creative movement. Sliders are increasingly popular due to the rise of Cinematic cameras and camcorders and offer portability and add creativity to the production. Sliders are available in a variety of lengths, they can be manually operated or motor controlled , tripod mounted or stand alone.
Smooth Camera Control
The tripod head is crucial to the smoothness of the image. A truly fluid head will give the smoothest motion and reduce any vibration or juddering. You can get either variable fluid where the resistance levels are increased or decreased on a dial, or stepped fluid that will increase or decrease in preset stages.
Alternative supports to tripods are often in need when steady shots are required either on the move or when taking a still shot.
Camera Weight Carrier
Filming can last for several hours a day and when arm fatigue sets in, the vibrations can be picked up and affect the quality of image. A camera support will give you the peace of mind that you can last the day without compromising the shoot. Other forms of support include motion control and stabilizers that enable you to move around and maintain a smooth look and feel to your image; but tripods are the most popular form of support on the market!
