For the upcoming Grand Prix Cycliste events in Quebec and Montreal I will be doing some video work as well. Previously I’ve used my little point-and-shoot cameras for this as it was convenient (at the cost of quality). This year I expect to be doing more significant video coverage and so I’ve expanded my toolkit a little… three items in particular:
a Rode VideoMic Pro, a viewfinder and a shoulder rig to support it while filming.
I’m looking forward to testing it out over the weekend at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival. Here’s a shot of what my video setup looks like. This is the 7D, it also fits the 5D MkII so I have options.
