Back in the day, it seemed special to view the homemade videos of celebrations and special gatherings. Those were the times. During this tech-clever planet, you can’t manage with sloppy camera work any longer, not after you spent your youth having Photoshop at home and right now, even your your younger siblings now knows what video editing is!
As much as you would want to wish for simpler moments, they are gone forever. That does not suggest your talent behind the camera will have to take a beating whenever you are at the lead. And no, staying away from caffeine each morning won’t save you either, nor would your brand new video camera’s new stability function-your images will still display every step you take and every move you make, to borrow from The Police. What you need is to isolate your camera from your big, shaky mitts!
No amputation needed. A camera stabilizer will do the trick. Oh, your camera already has one of those built in? Again, let’s reiterate, you have to disassociate your camera from your hands or any bouncing, or trembling that it might pass on to your recording system. This is the reason you need a piece of external gear to keep it stabilized as you carry it, move with it, and capture wonderful videos.
With a camera stabilizer, you could basically achieve all kinds of things you typically do with your camcorder but without the rattles and jolts. What you’re left with is clean and fluid images as if shot from a difficult gadget or something that somewhat glides. The footage is smooth and spotless.
However that’s not the great thing. One would reckon that of course, this innovation is available, to experts! Or, at an exorbitant rate. Not really close. The beauty of the technology is that these days, camera stabilizers are actually quite reasonable. A lot of good ones are out there and certainly at the percentage of the value of the professional variety camera stabilizers. What’s more, they generally have an easy and smooth feature, not excessively bulky, ideal for a basic camcorder or DSLR.
So, next time there is a family occasion or get together, surprise the family with your expertise. They’ll be gunning to star in that production.
