You’ve probably seen monitors on different people’s cameras before. Did you ever wonder why they have them there or what they could be used for?
In this post I’ll be talking about why and how I use a monitor/recorder, as well as talk about different devices.

- Do I need a cage?
- Maybe. Depends what you are doing and your setup
I’m using one so I can attach more things to mine. In my case I want to attach a battery plate and monitor and microphone to my setup.
I also like having a nice handle. And most importantly I like having an hdmi lock.
I accepted no paid endoresment of this product.

Tour of my 4k rig.
Recently I’ve been shooting a lot of different projects from stock video, to events, corporate videos and interviews and some personal projects and I’ve had people ask me about my setup.
In this post, I’ll be giving you a tour of one of my common rig configurations.
Filming in Thailand
Recently I decided to take a trip to Thailand and Shanghai. Most of it was for scouting locations and also to build some footage for my reel. I knew I wanted to have high quality footage and wanted to be able to shoot in 4k as well as stills. Lastly I knew there would be times that I wouldn’t have access to power so having batteries and different power options would be very important. In this post I’ll be talking about what I brought, why I brought it, as well as what I didn’t bring. lastly Ill be talking about my challenges when filming in these locations.
Recently I just posted about the Atomos Assassin and some topics about it. However nothing beats seeing it in action. Because this video is pretty comprehensive in all the topics it covers, I’ve provided links to jump to that particular section of the video. So far having the assassin for 1 week has changed the way I shoot and quality of work I can create.
