John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - Video Kit

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Video Kit that we use. A transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

We are traveling much more now with video equipment, in addition to our still photography.  These are the two cases that we use for our video equipment. The industry standard for traveling with video cameras really is the Porta Brace system

They just know how to do it like nobody else does.  In addition to our Porta Brace system case for our XL1, which you are actually looking at me on now, we also have our Tamrac case which holds our shotgun microphone with our windscreen, some on camera lamps, extra double A batteries and nine volts, an extra tape, another microphone just in case, and an AC converter so that the Canon XL1 can run off of wall power.

What I can’t show you is the Canon XL1 that you are looking at me on, or the HD camera as a down shot, or the Canon Optura 100, which is our cutaway camera right there.  These three cameras are varying sizes and capabilities that let us do a wide variety of things. 

In the future, we’re going to be adding lipstick cameras which will get you closer to the action and let you see up close and personal, what we do and how we do it.  So that’s a look at our video equipment that works hand in hand with the audio kits that we use. 

Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
