ENG rig

My ENG rig for the camera is complete. I found a shoe adapter bar that allows me to mount both the Vidled light and the wireless receiver, so I can get it all on-camera without Velcro or some other less elegant arrangement. It's a bit heavy to hold by hand, but no big deal on a tripod at all. The wireless transmitter I bought is a plug-in type, so I can use it with any mic, and the receiver is two-channel, so I can always buy a second if I need to.

Everything sounds and looks clean. Sweet! The only thing I can think of that I don't have for film production is a fish pole, shotgun mic and perhaps another light and stand. Other than that, I feel like I'm in pretty good shape.

Ha! The CoasterBuzz logo on the mic. Nice! You weren't kidding about that were you?

Hi Jeff,

I have been looking for a shoe adapter bar and te one you show abbove looks great. Are you happy with it and can you rotate it 90 so it runs perpendicaluar to the way you hve it? What is it called and where did you get it?

Thanks so much,

Yeah, you can position it any way you want. I think I got it from Markertek, or maybe B&H. I forget which.
