One Review at a Time: Camera Arm for Artists

 
Sam’s Studio Set Up

Sam’s Studio Set Up

 

You probably know that video is important for content creators. As an artist video fits naturally into what you do. People want to know how we make the magic! This year I decided to make video a priority and in order to help with that I got an articulated arm that will hold my Canon camera.

I like the arm a lot. It holds my camera, but it can also hold a phone or tablet. At almost $115 it is an investment, but getting the right angle to video yourself working is key! You can create stuff for Instagram, YouTube, or however else you want to use it.

I find that I turn the camera on for most work sessions. You don’t have to upload it immediately, but later when you finish your project, you may just find you wish you had some video content. This arm helps with that.

If you want to see what I’ve been making you can check out my YouTube.

Here is a video I created using the set up above:
