FS-5 recorder:

Velcro strips:

Firewire cable:


Cable fasteners:

NOTE: Be sure to leave a minimum of 1/4 inch of space between the camera and the recorder to avoid overheating the recorder. Host: Mike Pompeo Filmed by: Erick Carrada VX Clips by: Erick Carrada, Darian Valdez, Josh Baldwin Edited by: Alexis Castro
