How to use a handheld video camera stabilizer.

"You and your video camera have been together for a long time. Isn't it time you two went steady?..."

USING A GLIDECAM, STEADICAM TYPE OF CAMERA MOUNT CAN DRASTICALLY REDUCE VIBRATIONS AND SHAKE FROM YOUR VIDEOS. 

Here we go over some basic tips to help maximize your SteadiGO's capabilities. 

 

Walking heal to toe in a smooth, flowing motion helps to keep your body stable.

Keeping good posture with a straight back helps lessen user fatigue so you can shoot comfortably and for longer. 

Keep your elbow at a 90 degree angle to help with controlling the rig. 

Holding the steadycam out away from your body (arm extended) while in motion also helps to reduce shake as your arm acts as a shock absorber.

Wide angle lenses help videos to appear smoother when using any kind of stabilizer, dolly or jib .

(Example: It can be like walking around while looking through binoculars as opposed to using the wide angle view of the naked eye.)
