This weekend I did something that I've wanted to do for quite some time... purchased some new toys! One of the things that has been on my list for quite a while is a Cinevate Atlas Slider. This 26" slider is durable, quiet, and it looks really good. With this slider I also got the all terrain legs which can be moved around. This slider is also really cool because I am able to put it on a tripod horizontally or vertically. Since I just opened this out of the box I don't have any test shots, but I will be doing that very soon!
To go along with my fancy new slider I ordered a Manfrotto 496RC2 Ball-Head. Sliders typically don't come with heads to mount the camera to, so I needed or order one. This type of head will be great for when I put the slider vertical or on something that is uneven.
Last, I got a pair of sweet headphones. Everyone wants a pair of sweet Beats by Dre so I thought, why not? Then I though, that's a lot of money for headphones, so I decided on something else! I ended up getting some Sony DJ style headphones, which were a lot cheaper and reviewed very well.
I wish that New Toy Tuesday was a weekly thing! It is always exciting when I am able to purchase new 'toys' that will help the quality of the Films that I am able to produce!
