Great Happiness! I finally got things set up!
What I like most about the tripod is that it fits onto my desk, and the little latch thingy on the head that helps screw it onto my camera (no idea what the actual scientific terms are, to my shame). My old one doesn’t have that “screw assistant”, so in order to attach and detach it without breaking all my nails, I have to use a screwdriver or something similarly shaped.
I’m now all set to shoot the making of sculpting Boonka this weekend, I hope. I might discover that I’m missing some super vital part, and unable to attain it during the Shabbat (hello closed everything!), but as far as the test video went, it looks pretty good.
Here are all the things included in my current setup:
Nikkor 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6GYongnuo WJ-60 Led Lights
Velbon QHD-43D (Tripod Head)
Manfrotto 055 (Tripod)
