I went to KLIA last weekend to send my family. Their flight was at 6.30pm.. I decided to do a time lapsed shot at KLIA….For that purpose, I used my current tripod… It is a cheap tripod from China..Nevertheless, that was my only option.
After sending my family, I started my project. Initial recording looked good. I mounted the camera on the tripod and it fits perfectly. Now i am ready to go… I mounted the tripod on the trolley provided at KLIA. Shooting time babe!
Shit happened, the tripod pan controller didn’t hold the camera angle very well..Instead, the pan controller turned above.Damn!What a cheapo tripod..Crap…
I didn’t give up, I still try to do some recording…Walking around 5th floor using with the trolley which was mounted with the tripod…People kept watching over me, but heck,what do I care?
At the end of the day, I got a decent result… Managed to capture some scenery inside, but not good enough for time lapsed shot.
This is unacceptable, my shooting was distracted by a cheap tripod. Thus, I decided to buy a professional tripod to do my job perfectly..
After some scouting, found this tripod,DIGIeye Pro-350 Professional 3 Way Pan Head Tripod.
- 3 adjustable angles for legs
- 2 sections center column
- max tube diameter 19.8mm
- net weight of only 950g (lightweight!!!)
- folder length: 630mm
- extended length: 1520mm
Now, I will do a much better shot using this tripod…It is a stable tripod and for professional use.. Maybe I need another one for DIY steadicam purpose.
