September 29, 2010


Tweet

Vimeo member Stanislav submitted this tip on holding a tripod for extra stability. I know this isn’t the most advanced thing on this blog, but you’ll be surprised how many people will find this useful. Let’s not forget our budget film making roots.

The Steady Stick isn’t really anything fancy and pretty straight forward about how it works. I will run through some of the details of their build quality and features a little. The Glidecam HD1000 is really [...]

video from YouTube by rattusvulpes
This Golden Oldie (literally Gold) looks very very familiar. If i’m correct, I remember seeing the transformations of this thing while it was coming out of DIY progress on the Internet. I think it was called Pegasus. It looks like it’s a pretty finished project now that’s gone into mass manufacturing [...]

Aquarium – Canon EOS T2i Footage
May 21, 2010


Tweet

The above video is from Justin Salman shot with a Canon EOS 550D / T2i + Canon 50mm F/1.8
Not long ago shooting video with a consumer camera in low light would be a waste of time. The footage would be pretty much unusable unless you went for a more higher end $2,000.00 + pro-sumer camera [...]

May 20, 2010


Tweet

Since the dawn of HD Video DSLR’s there’s been some random and weird stabilizers being made by so many different companies. One thing is for sure, they are out to capitalize and mark up equipment from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Not to say they aren’t functional. In fact many of these new DSLR cages [...]

Camera Hand Grip
May 12, 2010


Tweet

I saw these grips a while back online, but thought they would be something very tiny and not very useful. Turns out these things are quite large and the company who makes it also designs Gun and Rifle type stabilizers. I have yet to see a DSLR + Viewfinder with this handle, but thinking that [...]

BodyPod Monopod Stabilizer for 550D Canon T2i – Light Cameras
March 25, 2010


Tweet

Before this video will make any sense, you should know about my DIY BodyPod project found at http://cheesycam.com/?p=93
A BodyPod is not a tripod. It’s basically a cut up monopod that supports the camera by use of a strap attached to the body.
These stick things are used to take a picture of yourself by mounting a [...]

$20.00 Dollar Should Mount Rig Camera Support
November 28, 2009


Tweet

I’m not saying this DIy shoulder mount should be used with the new DSLR video cameras, but if you’re rockin’ a Canon HV20 / HV30 / Vixia HD camcorder or similiar sized cameras, this is a simple solution to getting great steady shots for under $20.00 dollars.
I was asked if I had any ideas for [...]
