Football programs have become increasingly reliant on Endzone Cameras to capture their game film, especially at the high school level. If you'd like to know why football game film is so important, check out our previous blog post on the subject HERE.
For those trying to decide what kind of Endzone Cameras to purchase, you may be wondering how much you need to spend in order to get the job done. While cheap, flimsy tripod endzone tower systems may exist at what seems like a bargain price, these elevated camera set-ups do not stand the test of time.
First of all, you absolutely must have an Endzone tower of at least 25-30 feet in height. Anything lower and you'll be missing the appropriate vantage point in order to effectively study each play. For further reasons why height matters so much check out our post on the subject HERE.
When you have a camera up that high, the tower is subject to the elements more than ever. Unprofessional, piecemeal towers do not have a wide base, they require sandbags for weight, and may easily blow around in the wind. You need a tower specifically designed for filming football games in an outdoor environment.
Most inexpensive tripod towers are built overseas and/or are not originally intended for the Endzone. Sport Scope offers American-made telescoping towers purposefully designed for sports and constructed from premium, high quality materials. Don’t put together a DIY Endzone Tower made of fiberglass, carbon fiber, or plastic. You need durable stainless steel and aluminum. This is what makes the Sport Scope tower rock solid; and for extra assurance complete with a 10-year warranty.
Additionally, the 30' Sport Scope Endzone system is the only elevated camera system with a custom automated Pan/Tilt unit mindfully designed for filming football. Third party automated Pan/Tilt units don’t have football in mind. These third-party devices also haven’t been designed with enough downward tilt to catch all the action. As a result, you may have to resort to some crude, makeshift workarounds in order to get the proper downward view. Not so with the Sport Scope.
Moreover, Sport Scope is a premium package that includes EVERYTHING. The system comes with a custom protective case, wheel base for mobility, hard case for all electronics, and custom rain gear. Everything is professionally organized and ready to go. And with the industry’s best customer service at your fingertips, your endzone camera tower will always be taken care of before game day.
The last piece of the puzzle is price. Or, more specifically, let's talk value. Right now the Sport Scope 30' Automatic and 25' Manual Endzone Systems are the lowest priced products on the market for what you get in terms of quality, a complete package, intuitive set up, customer service, and warranties. No other system boasts this kind of premium construction and accessories at our prices. Do the research yourself to understand why.
Don't make the mistake of buying a tower under 25 feet and don't make the mistake of buying a low quality tripod or something that wasn't designed specifically for filming sports. You'll just be purchasing something else to replace it every couple years and that means you'll be losing money in the long run.
Sport Scope is devoted to providing you with a high-quality premium product and relentless customer service so that you always get the film your team needs. To find out more about our 30' Automatic Endzone system or our 25' Manual Endzone system follow the links or call 1-888-335-7875 today!
