Video 18 exclusive: ENG with Patrick Simon Posted: 25/01/2013

Time is in short supply. A retake is usually impossible. For some, TV reporting and live production mean stress; for others, it is a challenge: "It is always exciting to arrive at the shooting location and realize that the shoot will not go according to plan. This means rethinking spontaneously, deciding quickly, getting the best possible results with the equipment at hand, and, in spite of everything, producing good material," says freelance digital media designer for video and audio Patrick Simon when describing filming in the ENG field. Every take has to be perfect the first time. Therefore, it is even more important for operators to be able to rely on camera support. His choice: the Video 18 ENG 2 CF, a tripod system by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
