A week ago I set out to look at “my pad” on a video rig. I see promise.
I went to validate my configuration from earlier today where I want to use my iPad Pro 10.5 as a 4K video camera for the 2017 International Folks Festival Parade of Nations in Fayetteville, North Carolina late September.
The rig now uses an external parabolic microphone–The Sound Shark. It gathers sound better than the internal iPad microphones. Thanks to the iRig PRE, I can power it and use its XLR microphone connector. Above, “the shark” is with wind cover.
I have also converted an iPhone wide angle lens [not pictured] to a 37mm lens to mount a threaded solar filter. I hope it arrives in time… My hope is to use this rig to capture surrounding happenings during the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse.
