Wooden Camera has released new vertical video creation tools, including a Vertical Camera Bracket, Mini Vertical Camera Bracket, and a Director’s Monitor Cage v3 Vertical Conversion Kit.
Despite the reluctance, there is a growing request for vertical video content. Sure, you could just use an iPhone, but there is a need for higher quality material to also be produced.
Traditionally there has been two ways to do this. You either take a cropped 9:16 image out of your original frame or you use some sort of vertical video mount for your camera.
Vertical Camera Bracket
The Vertical Camera Bracket has 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes plus pass-through slots on both the horizontal and vertical plates for attaching to tripod plates, camera bodies, ARRI dovetails, and more.
The plate has been designed to he bracket can accommodate even the heaviest camera packages.
It is made from durable, CNC machined aluminum. It retails for $295 USD.
Mini Vertical Camera Bracket
The Mini Vertical Camera Bracket, as its name implies, is just a smaller version of the Vertical Camera Bracket. It was designed to accommodate smaller sized cameras such as Mirrorless and DSLRs.
The Mini Vertical Camera Bracket has 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes plus pass-through slots on both the horizontal and vertical plates for attaching to tripod plates, camera bodies, and more in a vertical position. It is made of durable, CNC machined aluminum.
The mini bracket is 45% lighter than the full-size version to accommodate smaller camera setups. It retails for $195 USD.
Director’s Monitor Cage v3 Vertical Conversion Kit
The Director’s Monitor Cage v3 Vertical Conversion Kit is a simple set of mounts that allows you to mount your monitor vertically on the Director’s Monitor Cage v3.
