Hey Fletch, how did you sneak in your tripod ?



I gather it’s one of those 6″ table top tripods. You could stick it in your pocket and they’d never notice it.

Here’s another option ~

steecoe: I don’t understand the math behind this one, because if my hands are so jittery that I shake the camera, how would putting the camera on a 6 inch stick & then holding that with my shakey hands make the picture any more stable. I would think that would actually amplify the shakiness :!: :?:

You’re right about that. If someone is that shakey, then nothing is going to help.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

fletch: if youre shakey to start then image stabilization isnt going to work for you anyways- stick or no stick.Dont drink soda or caffine drinks 5 hours before a show! no coffee, tea, nothing like that. No beer either. Also different medications will make you shakey. The idea is that naturally holding both hands on a camera for two hours…your arms are going to be in pain! its easier to hold the stick with one hand and use the other for zoom. And you’re going to stand perfectly still and not move for two hours? ok…right… I use a few different cameras and different holding systems for other work I do and I’ve been doing it for a few years.

If you only have a six inch cock…I feel bad for ya! stick to tiny women! why even go there? I was being serious about helping you out and giving some advice.

You know what..forget I said anything, I dont know anything about shooting video….

Well EXCUUUSE me Mr & Mrs mufuckin sens-o-tive. First of all, you weren’t giving ME any advice. Second, I was not the one talking about 6 inch cocks. Third, you had no explanation of how your 6 inch tripod theory worked. Four, no, you are not the be all & end all of shooting video. Arrogance does not equal excellence.

There’s no way in hell you are going to get this through the door, even unassembled.

Even a scaled down version that you could easily slide into your pants (it would essentially be a 12X6 inch “flat” square) could help you hold the camera steady and would be a lot easier on the hands over the course of a two hour show.

Someone should invent an attachment that basically looks U shaped, with rubber grips on both sides.

ADVICE!!!!!!
Focus on individuals?Pan back for group shots?

Check out all of the clips on YOUTUBE to get a good idea of how shots look when framed differently. Some songs benefit from a wider angle perspective, i.e., Chinatown.

Something like the bob dylan/neil young type harmonica neck mount?

Just focus in on Ed ALL night, tbh it’s the only style no one’s thought of yet, there are hundreds of full band boots and no Ed on his own …and yet he remains the big attraction and the main pull to this band. In fact a lot of people who go to the show are probably guitar players anyway …so why not do an Ed vid fingers n’ all
:lol:

in my back pocket!! they didnt even ask…. in 5 different venues. I had my camera in my jacket pocket and each time they never asked about that either. They even used the wand on me…never asked.

a true first for filming!!

see Steecoe…there is no arrogance, you took it the wrong way. I’ll try and proof read next time… we’re all family here.
