After some experimentation, the rig now combines a Nokia N95 mobile phone with a Sennheiser shotgun mic and a C-clamp.
How’s it working out? Not bad. It’s a completely different animal as to other video projects we’ve worked on. It’s live — no editing. It’s a real challenge to handle this little thing and the still gear….Bottom line? It’s not fabulous. Yet. But it’s new. It’s fun. It’s different. It’s a lot less expensive and easier to handle than a live truck.
You have to love it: the mic’s bigger than the “camera.” Read more at NewsVideographer (and thanks to Angela Grant for naming the rig).
