  1. Can you use the Cobra Crane Backpacker with the Manfrotto 701? Or will it not support the weight?

    how about manfrotto 501?

    • Victor, that’s what I use to support my jib. The 501 should work well for that kind of application – holding weight without moving is something its pretty good at. I would avoid trying to adjust the tilt while the crane is attached though – unless you have someone supporting the weight, you’ll end up with everything trying to fall over on you.

  3. Hi! excellent site and great info! I’m trying to get started doing weddings in FL using the GH2…but wanted to see what you did for your audio? Are you micing the groom and/or officiant with lapel mics? Do you record with a separate device (Zoom H4n etc.)? If so, do you use a field monitor. And lastly, how do you sync it up in post, using a clapper or via software that automatically syncs? Thanks a ton!

    • Kyle, I’m going to try to do a comprehensive post on how I do wedding audio, but I’ll still pretty new at it and I don’t know that I have all the kinks worked out. I will say that yes, I do use a Zoom H4N to do the bulk of the heavy lifting.

Tell me what you think!
