Curated for parents by parents, our “Keep it Dead Simple” (“KIDS” for short) kits are specially designed for easy setup and simple use. This kit includes:
- Canon HF G40 Camcorder
- Manfrotto MVH500AH Head w/ 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Tripod Legs
- Canon BP-828 Battery
- SanDisk SDXC 128GB Extreme Pro 95MB/s UHS-1 U3
This kit has been designed with a bare minimum of added accessories to make setup even easier. In this kit, you’ll find a camcorder, fluid head tripod, memory card, battery, and related accessories—every component you’ll need to start shooting. If we’ve done our job as curators, you’ll be able to unbox and assemble this kit in less than fifteen minutes, and get shooting with minimal technical expertise.
The LensRentals Basic Tripod Kit provides stable fixed-position shooting with smooth pan and tilt functions. The supplied fluid head tripod gives you a compact, lightweight solution that’s entirely freestanding. Note that the built-in microphone picks up practically all audio around the camera, with varying degrees of quality.
The HF G40 camcorder comes preset to record up to nine hours of high-quality Full HD video to the included card. The fixed 20x zoom lens lets you get close to the action, even when you’re relegated to the sidelines or the back of the room. The supplied rechargeable battery will power the camcorder for approximately two hours per charge, and you can use the AC adapter if you need to record for longer.
