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.

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.
I recently traveled to Thailand and Shanghai for a bit of filming and location scouting for some projects. When preparing for the trip I realized I needed a travel tripod that I could comfortably walk around with all day and set up for some time-lapse photography.
Filming in other countries- Mexico
This will be a series of different posts depending on where Im traveling. This year Im traveling to Mexico, Canada, and Thailand. Im going to try and work on my reel, learn about filming, and generally see and capture as much as I can while out and about. I’ll be talking the Following topics for each country:
- Where Am I going?
- What am I doing?
- What am I bringing?
- What did I want to bring but didn’t?
- Why didn’t I bring it?
- Customs/Duties/ laws
So let’s get started
I was recently contacted by a former student and they are looking to purchase a camera in the near future. The camera would be used for demonstrations, inside and outside as well as for interviews. This particular individual also wanted to be able to record good audio in these situations. So which ones are the best? What are the options? It’s a fairly common question I get so I thought i would share my response online in case other people have this question too.
(note* cameras and equipment change wildly from year to year so bear in mind this was written in October 2015 and some of my choices may change in the future)
