    Hey
    I'm looking for a professional video mini tripod. I would use bogen as
    a professional tripod normally, but I cant find any 'small' ones to
    get the smaller shots. Can anyone suggest something I should try to
    get the shot at the low angles with some sort of professional tripod?
    Any specific models?

    PLEASE LET ME KNOW VIA EMAIL - anthonymd at hotmail.com
    thanks

    Typically, you would rent something called a Hi-hat. It's a short three-legged
    mounting point for a claw-ball type pan head. Yopu attach the hi-hat to say a 2
    by 2 foot square of plywood, lay this ont he ground, attach the pan head, go to
    town.

    Or, you put a sand bag on the ground for support and shoot hand-held.

  4. There's a Sachtler mini (tripod only, no head) on eBay:
