If you follow my blog you know that I’ve done a lot of vblogging or interviews on my iPhone. It has a great quality video and I have a nice Fostex add-on for capturing good quality audio you can read more about that in the blog I did here My Road Kit for Rapid Video. One of the things I talked about in some of my blogging and in sessions that I do at conferences is using a tripod. People don’t have much tolerance for shaky cameras you see a lot of it out there but it really brings down the quality of your video. We are pretty tolerant these days because of YouTube and not expecting broadcast quality video even for professional use. You need to have good quality audio and a decent image. I put a lot of emphasis on framing my subject correctly. I definitely considered that it might be viewed via a mobile device so I frame accordingly. But one thing that really bothers people is a shaky image tripods can fix this but even better especially if you need to kind of run and gun. You will need something that stabilizes your image my new Canon XA10 has image stabilization built-in and it works pretty good. I was pretty jazzed about this image stabilizer below. And think it is a pretty good solution. It doesn’t take much to stabilize a camera it’s really just to counterbalance. But there are a lot out there and some are extremely expensive this seems like a good value and a pretty good solution. Even though there demonstrating this with action it would work well for covering events or doing interviews and such.
