What is the best way to mount 360Rize® 360 rigs onto Manfrotto monopods and why?
Filming 8K 360 video content is critical to getting the best quality. And yes granted it requires more post work however in the end, if filmed correctly via proper mountig and taking advantage of these mounting positions. It makes the post work much less with great results. Here is one very important question that keeps coming up by our amazing customers as to why the multiple mounting points on all of the 360Rize 360 video gear. Here is a quick demonstration video on how to properly mount our 360 video rigs to Manfrotto’s new VR monopod’s or any other monopoles. CEO, Mike Kintner, explains each different mounting point on our TCS SyncBac Pro7, H5 Pro7 ( both using GoPro cameras) and YI Pro7 rigs (using YI Cameras) and what’s the best application for each mounting position.
Here is a basic run down of the key points in this quick tutorial.

Corner mounting point A on our anodized aluminum core for improved strength is landscape mode. It is the perfect mounting point for shooting in wide open areas such asfields, concert venues, and stadiums.
