Due to the DSLR camera, smaller steadicams like the Glidecam, Merlin, Flycam and more where born. These steadicams are lightweight and very flexible in use. In the first place these steadicams make sure our camera is stable, but when we are creative it allows us to do so much more.
In the first trick you will learn how to properly use your steadicam. Many people believe the steadicam must be hold by one hand. But if you use your two hands, you can balance your camera way better.
Some viewers advised to steer the steadicam underneath the gimbal. We believe it’s a personal matter, but it’s good to point out to try both.
Once you understand this technique, you can do more advance movements like moving over objects, making fast swipes, rolling your steadicam and more. This device allows us move in a 3 dimensional world, so basically anything is possible.
This tutorial video will however not show you how to balance your Glidecam or Flycam. For that we refer to the many other instructional videos on Youtube.
