Cheap way to do camera crane shots and “flying” for video – Old boom pole + Zhiun Smooth Q Gimbal

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Cheap way to do camera crane shots and “flying” for video – Old boom pole + Zhiun Smooth Q Gimbal

I’ve been testing a cheap way to get “crane” shots using a Zhiun Smooth Q Gimbal and a modified old boom pole – here’s the result.

Excerpt: People who follow this blog regularly will know I frequently post tests from the audio/ video kit I own and keep promising to launch a new Video Ed News channel. Inbetween commercial filming jobs I constantly learn about new filming and post production techniques and tweak them until I’m satisfied with one particular area of production and then I can feel I can move forward. Recently I’ve been experimenting with fairly low level point and shoot cameras. I have much better quality cams but the Sony A500, in particular, has got the kind of filmic “look” I like and it’s small…
