Welcome To The World Of Camera Stabilizers If you require a tool that will help steady the camera so that photos and videos may be taken without movement affecting the finished product, you'll need a camera stabilizer. Stabilizers and camera supports come in a number of types as well as a variety of prices. So how do you know what one will match your camera and filming needs while still fitting into your budget? First of all, with and without the various lenses and attachments which will affect weight, you will need to determine the size and weight of your camera. You want your stabilizer to be able to handle your camera at its top weight. You’ll also want to figure out what kind of images or videos you’ll be taking as you assess the various options. The most common and recognizable type of camera stabilizer is a tripod. In order to connect it to the camera, they consist of three legs and an attachment at the very top called a head. Legs can come in any length and for adjustable heights, many offer telescoping adjustments. Almost any kind of camera can be used with a tripod. The head is the part of the tripod that you want to think about most carefully. There are several types and styles of head, based on your budget, your camera, and what kind of shots you want to capture. Jibs are similar to cranes made especially for cameras. The height of the pole is balanced using a boom and often they include a remote camera control function. Jibs provide the ability to get the overhead shots or shots which require an expanse of horizontal or vertical movement. Monopods, contrary to tripods which have three legs and customarily stand in one place, have just one leg and usually come with telescoping options. Unfortunately, a monopod can't stand alone if you have to plant one in place, but having your camera on a pole helps to create mobility and freedom as well as stabilization. For that there are attachment support choices, though, and many have a quick release mounting system so that the camera can be switched from one kind of support to another quickly and easily for greater flexibility. Hand-held stabilizers which come with attachments to make them more versatile are increasing in popularity. To make them considerably easier to carry and transport, as well as lowering vibration, the majority are made of lightweight carbon fiber rather than metal. When you’re carrying around equipment, or balancing a five pound camera on a pole, weight can quickly become a problem. To give additional support and prevent fatigue, some stabilizes come with wrist or arm braces. Another benefit that a photographer spending hours at a shoot can really appreciate are padded handles. Repetitive motion injuries must be taken seriously. Vests that support the camera are offered also, and are especially helpful when shooting video. They work by transferring the weight of the camera and support arm to your torso, which frees your hands for balancing and guiding the camera while you shoot, as well as providing some arm and shoulder relief from the continual weight of the camera equipment. Because there are so many alternatives for camera equipment, you’ll want to do your research carefully before you make any purchases. It is definitely worth it to invest in a top quality camera. You will notice the difference in your end product because it brings more value to both your photos and videos. Varizoom
