Have you been looking for something to hold your phone or camera so you could film directly over your project? Well, the Arkon Remarkable Creators Phone and Tablet Stand with Ring Light Bundle (model RCTABLED) is a great solution. Here's an example I tried this morning.
I've used the Arkon Camera Mount for wreath making projects and it has worked great. It's flexible, you can position your camera directly over your project without the base of the mount getting in the way. This is usually a problem that I've run into when trying to position a tripod holding my camera. Below is an example of that set up. The mount is holding my iPhone and my iPad. So while doing a live showing how to make the wreath, I could read the comments from the Ipad. The Arkon Camera Mount will hold a smartphone or video camera.
There is an extra piece that screws into the bottom of your camera, and a ball that fits into the mount. Just be careful if you are using a very heavy camera that you have either shortened the distance of the arm the camera will hang out from, or use some type of counterweight to secure the base. Do some testing before you let go of your camera))
Today's project was cooking at my stove. I wanted to see how the Arkon Camera Mount would work filming directly over something I was cooking. And it did delivered just as I expected!
Here's a short video of the camera in use.
I did turn the stove off while I was filming just to be safe and I didn't use the tablet attachment since I was doing video and not streaming live video. I used my iPhone to do this video and I will have to admit, I had visions of my iPhone falling right into the beans! But it didn't)) I attached the LED Ring Light when I started filming for extra light.
I love this accessory! One of the most difficult things or handicaps in getting started doing video or live streaming is getting equipment set up. The Arkon Mount eliminates that stumbling block. You can set it up in seconds and be ready to shoot. It's easy to move around to find your best lighting or background and it holds well. Once you're done, just remove the phone or camera and set it aside.
