  4. The minimum height of this tripod is 15.75 inches. If you need lower height, keep your camera on the floor or on books or whatever you can find. The center column will prevent the tripod from going lower. The camera plate is large and generous, has support for the main tripod pin as well as a support pin which is great since somethings plates which have only one pin may tend to twist under the camera. The pan rod is just teh right size for a tripod this size. Overall, a great tripod for its intentions which is a quick light tripod for travel videos. Use it only for light cameras.
  5. If you need additional height, the center column can be extended but I wouldn't recommend that as it makes the tripod unstable. You will probably get shaky shots. If you really really need the height, stretch the thickest legs first, the thinnest last. and the center column only and only if you really need it. The Manfrotto Befree Live Video Travel Tripod has a max height of roughly 4.9 feet which should suffice most 'hobbyist videographers and content creators' as Manfrotto's target audience for this tripod. However, when fully extended the tripod isn't very stable for quick pans or tilts. Unless you have a very light camera.
  6. When buying a video camera, we spare no expense of getting a quality camera body or lenses. But what most people get thrifty on is the tripod. You cannot have good video without a good tripod. A good tripod will ensure your video is not shaky. It will ensure you video looks high quality and professional on YouTube and other online channels. But a good tripod is also expensive. Today we review an entry level model, the Manfrotto BeFree Live Aluminium Tripod with Video Head. It is available in india for roughly Rs 12-15000. It is lightweight and has most of the good features you would need from a tripod. The Manfrotto Befree Live tripod comes with a rather handy bag. Unfortunately the bag is not padded. I have seen in shoots the tripod is never respected and is always thrown around and misused. If anything needs a padded bag, it's the tripod. having said that, it is handy enough that there is a bag with a sling strap which is very useful. Once out of the bag, the tripod looks very neat, is intelligently folded and quick to set up. It weighs roughly 1.7 kilos. Although Manfrotto mentions the safety payout of the tripod at 4 kilos, I would use only the lightest camcorders with this tripod. Any DSLR would become heavy with its lens. The tripod has puny legs and being light, will not be able to take the weight of a heavy camera and pans or movements. There will be shakes for sure unless you are super careful, but that's unlikely on most hectic shoots. The Manfrotto Befree Live Travel Video Tripod is most stable at this height with all legs retracted and the center column retracted as well. I must take some time to share how great this tripod's video head is. The Manfrotto BeFree Live Video Travel Tripod has an awesome half bowl kind of head that enables quick levelling. An easy to view spirit bubble guide helps greatly! Believe me, when shooting you need a head that levels quickly and accurately and the Manfrotto BeFree Live Video Head is great at that. See the leveling head for yourself. The only flip side is the tilt-pan drag is fixed and cannot be changed. The pans and tilts are very smooth via Manfrotto's excellent fluid head. This tripod may be light in weight, but in features, its a heavy weight.
  7. We get asked this question often. If you are starting from scratch and have no gear at all, the best solution is to buy an iPhone 12. Why? The new iPhones are fantastic for video with Dolby Vision HDR Video. The built in lens and image quality is truly fantastic. If you want evern better audio quality (though we have seen the iPhone's built in mics are very good on their own), go for some thing like a Shure MV88 Microphone, as well as Rode VideoMic Me. And get a decent stand for it. Searching around, you will find more than enough options here. So you now have a microphone and camera. But you need to shoot at 25FPS for India, but iPhone natively only shoots 30fps. Get Filmic Pro, perhaps the best iOS software out there to shoot video with manual over rides. What about editing? You can use Apple's excellent free iMovie. Or you could go for Luma Fusion (much more advanced but comes for about USD 30). So, for less than the cost of a DSLR plus lenses you have an excellent vlogging setup. Which is more portable. Plus you can always use the iPhone as a personal phone and a social media tool. Shoot on your iPhone, edit on your iPhone and upload to cloud from there itself. What to do about storage? USe the Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive Go to copy all your videos from iPhone to your flash drive, and then from Flash Drive to other storage mediums. Or if you are feeling more cloud friendly, then get some storage like BackBlaze to backup your data. But remember you would be posting your videos on YouTube/Social media so they will exist their anyway.

  11. In The Heights : The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to the event of the summer, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... “In the Heights.” Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. “In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience. “In the Heights” stars Anthony Ramos (“A Star is Born,” Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton,” “BlacKkKlansman”), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s “Vida”), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s “In the Heights”), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s “Rent”), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s “Matilda the Musical”), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Dascha Polanco (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Jimmy Smits (the “Star Wars” films). Chu is directing the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes; it is based on the musical stage play, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. “In the Heights” is produced by Miranda and Hudes, together with Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs. David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick served as executive producers. Behind the camera, Chu is reuniting with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He is also collaborating with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (“Eighth Grade”). The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.” “In the Heights” was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights. Slated for release on June 26, 2020, it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Zola :
  12. Quo Vadis, Aida? : Srebrenica is no longer just the name of a town. It represents the worst of human cruelty and an act that many had hoped was expunged from European history with the end of the Second World War. Jasmila Zbanic's drama unfolds in 1995, just as the Serbian army have entered the mostly Muslim Bosnia town. Aida is a translator for the UN. Her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. But as an insider to the negotiations, she has access to crucial information that forces her into the untenable position of deciding between her obligation to those she loves and the role that has a wider impact. Zbanic's humanity, locating her story on a relatable level, within an event that many of us might find impossible to comprehend, is what raises 'Quo Vadis, Aida?' far above the level of the standard war film. Identifying features: Middle-aged Magdalena (Mercedes Hernandez) has lost contact with her son after he took off with a friend from their town of Guanajuato to cross the border into the U.S., hopeful to find work. Desperate to find out what happened to him—and to know whether or not he’s even alive—she embarks on an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous journey to discover the truth. At the same time, a young man named Miguel (David Illescas) has returned to Mexico after being deported from the U.S., and eventually his path converges with Magdalena’s. From this simple but urgent premise, director Fernanda Valadez has crafted a lyrical, suspenseful slow burn, equally constructed of moments of beauty and horror, and which leads to a startling, shattering conclusion. Winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Audience and Screenplay Awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
  13. Acasa, My Home : COMING TO VIRTUAL CINEMAS JANUARY 15. Winner of the Special Jury Award for Cinematography, World Cinema Documentary, at the Sundance Film Festival. In the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, an abandoned water reservoir just outside the bustling metropolis, the Enache family lived in perfect harmony with nature for two decades, sleeping in a hut on the lakeshore, catching fish barehanded, and following the rhythm of the seasons. When this area is transformed into a public national park, they are forced to leave behind their unconventional life and move to the city, where fishing rods are replaced by smartphones and idle afternoons are now spent in classrooms. As the family struggles to conform to modern civilization and maintain their connection to each other and themselves, they each begin to question their place in the world and what their future might be. With their roots in the wilderness, the nine children and their parents struggle to find a way to keep their family united in the concrete jungle. With an empathetic and cinematic eye, filmmaker Radu Ciorniciuc offers viewers, in his feature debut, a compelling tale of an impoverished family living on the fringes of society in Romania, fighting for acceptance and their own version of freedom. Saint Maud : YOUR SAVIOR IS COMING. From writer/director Rose Glass and starring Morfydd Clark and Jennifer Ehle. SAINT MAUD — Spring 2020.
  14. Night Of The Kings : A young man is sent to “La Maca,” a prison in the middle of the Ivorian forest ruled by its inmates. As tradition goes with the rising of the red moon, he is designated by the Boss to be the new “Roman” and must tell a story to the other prisoners. Learning what fate awaits him, he begins to narrate the mystical life of the legendary outlaw named “Zama King” and has no choice but to make his story last until dawn. Lapsis : Noah Hutton’s speculative LAPSIS is an alt-present sci-fi thriller most relevant to the horror of our current, late-capitalist moment.
