  • The Importance of a Good Tripod

    Many of the new video camcorders offer very long range telephoto options.

    When using these options it is almost mandatory to use a tripod of

    some sort to support the main camera.


    As magnification of the image goes up, so goes hand held jiggle.

    Wide angle optics make the background recede faster than a normal perspective.

    The depth of field of a wide angle lens is greater but the depth of focus is less, paradoxically.

    Over the last five years the nature of digital video has improved from a mere experiment to almost everywhere.

    A good tripod makes ones video more marketable.
