Having a large space where you can record comfortably, with multiple stands to place lights, monitors, cameras, etc. is not within everyone's reach. In my case I have created a small workspace in the dining room at home, and in these situations the versatility of Vanguard VEO 3+ tripod is appreciated.
I am going to explain two of my main setups, with the uses that I give to the tripod, apart from photography.
Very often, when I have to record a course, on video or live feed, I need to be able to position the camera at different angles, depending on what I want to show.
#1 Speaking in front of the camera:
One of them is when I speak in front of the camera, to make an introduction or review a product, where I do not have to use the computer. This would be the setup:
Using the central column horizontally with the VEO+ MA1 adapter (included with the VEO 3+ tripod) I have three devices on the same tripod: camera, LED spotlight and monitor.
The camera with the LED on top evens out the lighting (in such a small space not much light is necessary), and the monitor allows me to control the focus and ensure that I am recording when I need to be. I could also place a teleprompter to follow a script, or a directional microphone (though in my case I use a wireless lapel microphone).
#2 Computer Tutorials:
I use the second setup in videos where I need to use side lighting, such as when I run computer tutorials.
As you can see I have the camera on the left hand side of the table, and just behind that is the VEO 3+ tripod with the column extended and the LED spotlight on the head. The ball joint allows me to adjust the position and adapt the light to make the most of the scene.
Again, you can see, adjusting the VEO 3+ tripod to our workspace is extremely easy.
So the VEO 3+ versatility is ideal for more than just taking photos. Combining the multi-angle centre column and the VEO+ MA1 adapter with the accessories of your choice, allows you to make this tripod an incredibly powerful tool.
