Low Post Camera Remote Questions
Rich Obrey, Photographer
Gorham | ME | USA | Posted: 3:34 PM on 11.22.13
->> When you set up a remote camera low on the backboard stanchion, essentially right at knee level, do you put a second Magic Arm on it to make it rigid and immovable, or just one Magic Arm, the one with the tripod plate, so it has some "give" if a player runs into it during a game?

Padding?

Horizontal or vertical?

Thanks

->> I would never mount one low, and I wince when others do. I don't care if it's one arm or two, it is still going to hurt and might lead to the venue banning remotes on the stanchion altogether. There is a reason the stanchion is padded - players run in to it.

But, that's me.

->> I shoot with 1 arm so it gives and also set it back off the pad just a tiny bit so if they hit the pad, they dont hit the camera.

->> Thanks for a helpful response. That's what I'm doing: one arm, set back, rubber lens hood. I can mount the magic arm so nothing protrudes past the padding except the camera.

It did get hit once, but it gave a little - more than the TV shooter sitting on a chair on the other side of the stanchion. And during a timeout I just pushed it back into position.
