Im new here and im not an engineer but i have a question hopefully someone can offer their thoughts on.. I film and record bands live and i want to run a video camera at concerts that are often very loud.. At times I also need to position the camera in front of the PA speakers and this combined with lots of bass frequencies and an unstable floor creates lots of vibration which affects the camera.. So id like to design a small platform to place the tripod on that would absorb the vibration .. I have seen some examples of vibration and shock absorbant items but im not sure how to tackle the problem exactly.. I cant afford to spend too much on this, i was hoping to do something for $200 or less.. I thought of a semi inflated inner tube from a traktor under a a 4 foot square piece of timber.. I wasnt sure how well this would dampen the vibrations though ? I thought the different levels of inflation may make it better or worse. But how would you know how to determine whats best ? The bass guitar usually creates consistant vibration (of varying degrees depending on the notes being played) and then it is amplified when the bass drum hits also so its a two fold problem really, constant vibration plus transients.. Its also affected by the different venues and their acoustic properties.. Ive looked on this site and seen some things which may help but id like to hear from anyone who has any info they would care to offer as im not really educated on these things. http://www.vibrationmounts.com/Products1.htm Appreciate any help.
