Hello from Adelaide, Australia

Hi all.

Figured I'd do a quick introduction.

I've been filming with a friend's gear for the past few years (Pana HMC151), mostly motorsport, and have finally just invested in my own gear and joined to try and learn a bit more about what I have and how it can be better used.

I just bought a Sony NX5 with a Vinten Vision Blue tripod system. I'd been investing in audio gear while my friend invested in video, so I've already got Rode mics, boom, etc. B camera is a 7D + lenses, never been that happy with it for video though.

These days I primarily live stream and do some corporate work for my day job, but I'd like to get into some documentary work.

Forums have been great for helping me decide on a tripod, hope to learn a bit more as time goes on!

Thanks,
Ryan

Welcome, Ryan........

Always good to have another Antipodean on board.

Glad to hear you found some usefull information on the Forums concerning your tripod choice, always nice to get back positive feedback that they do, indeed, make a difference.

Make yourself at home, and spend a lot of time using that Google Search at the bottom of every page, years of knowledge and entertainment to be had trawling the DVinfo crypts.

Plenty of us "old timers" who haven't quite made it into said crypts to answer current questions, so DVinfo just keeps giving, dead or alive.

Enjoy.

Re: Hello from Adelaide, Australia

Thanks for that Chris.

I've certainly been making good use of the search function already. You are in fact responsible for my Vinten purchase. I was all lined up to buy a Miller DS10 with Solo legs, as my friend has, and found not only that people on here were having issues with DS10 heads, but also your review had me convinced the Vinten would be a better tripod for similar (and in the end less) money.

Hopefully I can give as much as I get!

Re: Hello from Adelaide, Australia

I have absolutely no doubt you shall.

Wonder if Miller are ruing not coughing up a system last year for the shoot out, totally gob smacked me, that one.

I cannot understand what they were thinking.

(Secretly glad they didn't, practically killed me as it was, another may have finished me off once and for all. Still, now, any time they like, bring it on guys, I'm dying to give one a test drive, er, hint).

Thanks again for the feedback, always good to hear.
