Recently I bought a SIEM flyshot 50 to for my DSLR cam and the Ikonoskop. Like this I should be able to shoot nice stable footage when the object is moving fast.
I was reading a lot about stabiIizers like the flyshot and all users stress out that there’s a lot of practice involved to get it right! One of them did practice 80 hours before he was satisfied with the shots he made. And indeed, the beginning is pretty hard, the cam swings around everywhere.
This little edit comes from my very first hour of test footage, just playing around with the kids on the Eastern holiday with the family in France.
I will need a lot of practice to get it better (some more 79 hours…) especially to get my horizon straight and to get fluent turns, but hey, it’s not looking bad at all!
Last week I also did a shoot with a dog (a greyhound to be specific) in a forest and I can say, the dog was to fast for me! We gonna use this footage for a theater production of a friend of mine, Eline George. Come and see the performance on 16, 17 and 18th of May (https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/149221681906310/?fref=ts).
I will upload that footage later on… and start working on my speed meanwhile!
