One of the great things about the Sony NEX-5N is the size and weight. The bass player couldn’t have handled the bass with a heavier camera on the end. The NEX-5N was pushing it, but it was still workable for a few minutes as he played.
Here’s a short clip of what the shot looks like.
The Bass Cam has a very snorricam feel to it and produced some pretty cool footage. It’s not something you want a whole lot of in a video, but it will be nice for a couple of 2-3 second cuts. We’ll be cutting the final spot to a soundtrack, so the clicking problem with the NEX-5N is a non-issue here.
