Union J video with Sam Berrido

Here is some GoPro footage (see video) of me using my Polecam for a gig with Union J last week, in the lowest ceilinged venue ever! The wire strut system worked really well, and the pictures from the Polecam were great.

It was for a party for winners of This Morning competitions, to be used for their big Christmas competition, with four bands and presenter links. The size of the Polecam meant that it could get shots that couldn't be achieved using anything with a larger head, or bigger footprint. The client was delighted with the results.

I've also attached some pictures of my Sound Devices 2 channel MixPre-D set up, that allows me to rig the C300 on the Polecam without using the XLR/LCD screen bolt on, thus reducing the weight of the camera. The mixer has an unbalanced mic output, which can be connected directly to the camera.

The balance of the camera is much better, and it allows me to run one 3.5mm stereo jack cable down the arm to the unbalanced mic input of the camera and another from the headphone output back to the mixer to allow confidence monitoring from the camera. It makes recording sync sound on the C300 much easier, saving time in the edit.
