This collection of goods is primarily inspired by technical sound engineering — probed by all the necessities to making one epic mobile video: tools for better audio, packable tripods, and changing light. In collaboration with Shure, Joby, Gobe, and ROV you’ll no longer need a better group of gear. Read below our favorite specs and details about each item in the collection and why you need it in your camera bag.
