Tiffen launched its new Steadicam Curve at NAB 2013. The Curve is designed to work with GoPro HERO cameras.
I stopped by Tiffen’s booth to try out the Steadicam Curve and was instantly impressed with the usability of the device.
The Curve only weighs a half pound and is made to be operated with only one hand. It is the first Steadicam product that I have picked up and instantly felt at ease with it. For those who are intimidated by these stabilizer devices, this would be a great place to start. [click to continue…]
Adorama has released a new Steadicam-style video camera stabilizer under its Flashpoint in-house brand. The Flashpoint ZeroGrav appears to be a close reproduction of the Glidecam HD-2000, which is about the right build for HDSLR rigs. Notably, the ZeroGrav has a bigger load range of 2.2-11lbs capacity, while the Glidecam HD-2000 is rated 2-6lbs. [click to continue…]

I picked up a Glidecam 2000 a couple of months ago after talking with the Glidecam guys at NAB. One of the operators at the booth gave me a short course in how to use it effectively, which turned out to be very helpful as I’ve been learning the ropes.
I haven’t arrived by any means, but I’ve started getting some pretty fun and usable shots with it. My church’s VBS was a couple of weeks ago and I took the opportunity to have a bit of live practice with it.
Below is the VBS recap video we had for the parents the Sunday after. [click to continue…]
