I recently purchased a ShadowV with the intent on doing mostly narrative work.  In the event that I have an opportunity to shoot some live content I want to make sure I'm setup to do that as well.  Can someone give me a list of acs. they have found to work best for live shooting, for instance focus and zoom control from the gimbal handle?

In no particular order:

  • Gimbal Mounted Zoom/Focus Device - My preference is a Stanton
  • Fiber Jumper - 6' works great for me, ordered mine through Phoenix
  • Triax Adapter (less common and usually the show will have one for their Steadi)
  • Teleprompter and Mount
  • Broadcast Camera Plate - I like the Cam-Jam plate, it's super lightweight, drops the CG, and gets rid of all vibrations.
  • Return Monitor and mount
  • Lots of various tools for whatever chaos arrises
  • BACKUPS OF EVERYTHING - if it goes down and you're live, you have to get back up immediately.

A partial list, but should get you started.  The more you operate the more you will learn what you need and what you can live without.

Return comes through the camera if your tethered,  If your on a wireless set up it comes with an return rf module via the link system
