Supporting VideoBy David Willis Published in Tripods
The beauty of HD video is that it's incredibly crisp and detailed—and that's also its difficulty. Even a small amount of camera shake can be hard to watch for very long. If you're getting into video with one of the latest HD camcorders or an SLR that offers HD capture, you want to give your camera proper support.
Ideal for both video and still shooting on location, the Davis & Sanford All Terrain Pod with FM18 video head features weather-resistant aluminum and stainless-steel construction, in addition to two-section legs that are self-cleaning. The rectangular, closed-channel design works well on unstable ground, and the freeze-proof vice-action leg locks, pivoting flat/pointed feet and self-locking gear mechanism provide precise "No-Drift" elevation adjustment and secure footing. The removable three-way video head is quick-release for following the action. The All Terrain Pod with FM18 head can carry a weight load of 35 pounds (tripod) and 18 pounds (head), more than enough for a video D-SLR. List Price: $244.
