NAB2012 is just around the corner, and we're planning on doing some onsite video editing. It gets a bit crowded during the conference so i've been shopping for some type of mobile table and chair for our editor. Portable chairs are fairly easy to come by, but finding the right mobile desk is still the challenge. So far, of the ones i've seen, i'm leaning towards the Tripad. Extending parts of the Tripad allow for a mouse and cup holder. Albeit a bit expensive at almost $90 dollars, it mounts easily to a roller bag or tripod, both of which we always have during event coverage.
The way Chinese labor cost is today...it turn out to be $80. lol
Just to keep things in perspective, the new Apple TV is $99.
@Joe, I really hate to agree with you...but it's a sad truth that can't be ignored.
Not to take away anything from the US, but I can't wait until there is a chinese ripoff of this product. $99?? I mean come on!
@Bale - yea... especially the hair on the guy's arm in the thumbnail image. LOL. smh
Was contemplating this to shoot tethered at a party for a photobooth.
I wouldn't have known those situations were shot on a chroma key. That looked so real! 😛
Use it on the golf course/soccer match. yea right! Better be a severely overcast day.
Just went I bought the Quik Lok laptop
I saw the Tripad circulating on the blogs haha
I intend to use the Quik Lok when I shoot tethered and most of the times when I am shooting tethered it's on a tripod.. so this would've been cool as I already have a decent tripod.. sigh. haha
