Default My Canon 60D handheld rig for filming







Feels so good having great audio on my rig. And what I steal, I might add:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...h_Bracket.html

^ holy sh*t value, normally 50 bucks

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...apter_3_8.html

^hot shoe adapter so I can mount it on top

So, I've got a Zoom H4n and a Rode Videomic pro mounted on it. The shoulder stabilization rig is the Zacuto Striker, with a Z-finder 2.5X attached to my camera's screen. The Rode Videomic pro is going into the zoom h4n, and I have a splitter coming out of the H4n. One goes to my headphones so I can listen to what I'm recording, the other goes into my camera.

The result?

Epic audio recorded into my camera's video recordings. No more audio syncing in post for interviews.

feels good man.

Don't really know much about cameras but how much did everything cost you all together? Setup looks fucking Epic.

Keep in mind that I use this gear for my job, and my major is filmmaking.

In the picture above, we've got

Canon 60D: $1000

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens (just happened to be the one I had on at the time of the picture, it's not my only lens nor is it my primary): $650

Battery grip: $200

2 canon batteries: $80 for both

32GB class 10 SD card: $70ish

Zacuto Striker: $840

Zacuto Z-finder: $350

Zacuto battery grip Z-finder mount: $125

Zoom H4n: $300

Rode Videomic pro: $230

Mounting crap: $40ish all together (including the wires and splitters)

That's a pretty penny.

Sadly I'm so clumsy that even if I could afford it I'd be putting all that at risk big time.

Awesome gear though and obviously a blast to use I'm sure.

Jesus christ that's an investment.

Witty short-film, I enjoyed it.

The short film was only done with a Canon Rebel T2i and a Sigma 30mm f1.4. I had a fraction of the equipment I have now during that shoot.

What would you suggest for HD filming around $500-600?

If you have a little bit more money to spend:

Canon Rebel T2i or T3i with a Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens

or

Panasonic Gh1 with a Panny 20mm f1.8 lens.

Thank you

Which would you say is better? Sorry for the vague question

Edit: Obviously the t2's, seeing how they're much more out of my price range.

T2i is better out of the box, but older GH1's are REALLY good if you instal a hacked firmware that enables 1080p.
