Tripod advice from any of you videographers

Recommended Posts

This is a really big stretch to say this is Atari related, but since I'm looking for this so that I can do some Atari related videos...


Anyway, I've seen a lot of videos of guys assembling their 1088XELs, and installing their Ultimate 1MB Upgrades, etc. I'm wanting to do some similar videos when I start my 1088XEL build later this winter. I'm also running through Exxos' list of mandatory fixes on my adopted U.K. STE, as well as installing a dual-TOS card and converting it to a U.S. model. I'd like to make videos of this process as well.


I have a larger, regular style tripod for I use for my DSLR. What sort of smaller, workbench or desktop style tripod do you video guys use for up close and personal shots? I don't see myself starting to do unboxing videos every time you turn around or starting a video blog or anything. I'd just like to have something small and cheap that will help me with the occasional video.


Any suggestions?

Just make sure you get the kind with 3 legs.  The budget kind with only two (or one) leg just don't work!
