UPDATE: Here's a video we came across that does a great job of showing what can be done with an HD-2000. Video is by Amir Zakeri.
You’ve seen smooth handheld video, now make it your own with a Glidecam HD-2000. Your use of a handheld stabilizer can dramatically increase the production value behind your video, and help you achieve stable shots more quickly than with battery- and power-hungry stabilizing systems.
As a publisher of camera reviews, we get more cameras sent to us than a typical video enthusiast, but that doesn’t diminish any excitement when a camera gets delivered! If you’re like us and enjoy tearing through packaging and discovering and documenting every piece that is included, then you should enter our contest for the Ultimate Run-and-Gun DSLR Kit. We want to share that sensation, so plug in your case to be sent this prize. The contest is free to enter, additional entries are encouraged, and you’ll get Videomaker videos and tips along the way.
International public health organization, Global Dialogues, has issued a call for entries for their latest video challenge. The theme this year is Love, Freedom … Pregnancy?
Each year, Global Dialogues challenges filmmakers of any walk of life, discipline or skill level to participate in a challenge where they kick off a story and it is up to participating filmmakers to complete the story with their own vision in two minutes or less.
Video Contests are Great Ways to Have Fun, Earn Prizes and Get your Muse On! The video contest, "Driven Creativity", is sponsored by G-Technology and offers amateur and pro video producers a chance to win in such categories as Animation, Music, Photography, Short Film and GoPro Active.
