sure i'll hear you moment but it's it's gonna be on the show thank you and i've been very pleased with how it all turned out you just wanna be careful not to get too closed as those plo sizzle rattle that little condenser mike and that never sounds good but it was even easily avoidable i just kinda backed away the tripod and mike are both made a very sturdy metal which makes them better in the field i never once felt like i was holding something fragile or delicate the tripod itself is rather small which is nice but for tabletop shooting i sometimes wished it had the ability to maybe extend out a bit further this red button right here releases the mountaintop on top so it could be swivel locked in any position within its range rather easily all in all it's very flexible and i really liked wisher offers here dmv eighty plus is designed to be compact yet powerful giving creators something they can throw into they're fanny pack and carry with them everywhere they go so they're ready when the moment strikes and it sure did not cheap out on components iser it feels tough footage sound solid it's definitely an upgrade to that lonely smartphone cameras years and oh by the way be
