In this post I’m going to present all of the parts you need to make a wireless remote controlled HD camera for any sporting event like a football sideline or endzone view, basketball, soccer, hockey, or any other sport you might want to use this for. This means you could place an HD camera in one location and sit any distance away from the camera…like a press box, the stands, the sideline, etc and control the camera completely form a wireless RC controller. You may be thinking why would you need this, here are a few reasons:
1) you may need the filmer to be in a location other then where the camera actually is mounted in the stadium or arena…like being able to man multiple cameras at once or communicate and coordinate shots easily with another filmer, or maybe the filmer physically can’t sit with the camera
2) comfort and convenience
3) it’s freakin cool as hell and no one will have a rig like this
Here’s what you need:
5) 7″ monitor
Now I have left some finer details out because I haven’t actually made this rig yet, but I will soon. When I do I’ll update this with pics and more details on power, batteries, mounting, cables, etc. This will roughly cost $1000-1500, depending on a few variables so it’s very affordable and pretty straightforward.
