Sun should be behind the camera to avoid glare.
Prioritize keeping lenses clean. Under a roof or wiping the lens at half.
For recording at night, the less direct light in the lenses the better. If possible, tilt the camera to avoid glare from the floodlight.
Keep lenses clean and if possible, use a coloured ball.
3.8 m tripod
Place the tripod and camera as close to the sideline as possible, but don't forget to make sure that the area closest to the tripod is visible in the preview.
7.3 m tripod
The view is strong from 7.3 metres! So is the wind. So make sure the stablising strings are attached to the tripod. As with the smaller tripod, place it so the area closest to the camera is visible.
A rule of thumb is that height = distance from the sideline
Special pitch type
The most universal football field size. Always make sure that the corners are visible.
A height of 3 - 6 meters at equal distance is ideal.
Using stadium mount, tilt camera to capture all 4 corners on preview.
Change height to avoid glare of light of the floor.
