Vibrations and light issue
« on: December 09, 2016, 12:40:26 PM »
I will be video taping a show soon and could use some advice.
1. It is a old movie theater and people walking cause vibrations. What is the best thing to put under camcorder legs to help with the vibrations.

2. I have done some video taping before of bands.
Is there a adjustment that can be made to help with the glow from the spotlights? (Sony HDR-CX130)

Thanks

(1) Is there any possibility to clamp your camcorder to a seat / table / rail / truss? Otherwise weigh down your tripod (e.g. use some sandbags or water bottles).
(2) Use a suitable lens hood (+adapter ring). Use manual settings for focus and aperture.

EDIT (2016-12-10):
I just had a quick look at the 37-58 mm step up adapter and the 58mm wide-angle lens hood* I use with my Sony HDR-CX550 camcorder:

They're identical to these items on amazon.com:

*I had to use that combination in order to avoid vignetting effects.

Some pics attached...

Are you referring to over exposure?  If so, just manually adjust the exposure to the proper level.  I looked at the manual for this cam and it has manual exposure control.

I guess he's referring to lens flare.

I'd think so.  Can't make good concert video without manual exposure control...

Audio:
Schoeps MK4V

Are those vibration dampening pads worthwhile in a concert environment?

Not sure how effective they would be for audio-only recording where a good mic shock mount is all you really need and have no idea about video since I don't do any video. A friend uses some on his telescope tripod and they seem to be quite effective esp when compared to the times he doesn't use them.

Video is what I'm concerned with. I feel like they might not be much use in a rock or amplified concert environment. Could be wrong though.

I use chunks of Temper Pedic.  Have a buddy who works for a mattress store.  It kills!

Exactly what I use, only thing that works and you need weight like a bag on tripod in my experience.

I have a Tempur Pedic mattress. I fell like, if I cut a few chunks out for taping, my wife might possibly leave me.
