Make: television polecam photo from AOTS


During my appearance on Attack of the Show! this week, Kevin Pereira lined up some crew members to shoot with the Burrito Blaster. Brave souls. This is a photo of them, along with lovely co-host Olivia Munn, that Kevin took using the remote-controlled pole camera rig. One clever thing segment producer Sean Jordan thought of was to tap into the camera’s video out so we could monitor what the camera saw. I wish we’d thought of that! This is just a humble point-and-shoot camera, too, so it may be a pretty solid addition to the project. If you want to see what you’re shooting, just run a long RCA cable down the pole to a small monitor or video camera with a composite input.
