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. I’ve used this method myself a couple of times when in a [...]

21Jul Tiffen Steady Stick & Glidecam HD1000


Tweet

Wow pretty overwhelming day already. Just received the Tiffen Steady Stick and the Glidecam HD1000 I posted about earlier. 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 [...]

21Jun Gimbal Based Stabilizer Merlin Style


Tweet

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 [...]

21May Aquarium – Canon EOS T2i Footage


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 [...]

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 [...]

12May Camera Hand Grip


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 [...]

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.

28Nov $20.00 Dollar Should Mount Rig Camera Support


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 [...]
