Hi guys, I've been watching footage of the filing of the Olympics. Oftentimes, cameramen/women with very large video cameras are moving quickly around winners (say at the end of races). I've been wondering how the images from these cameras are stabilised, as from the movement around of the camera, they sure look like they must require a lot of it. A few cameramen/women have mechanical image stabilier arms on, but most don't.
a) Do such large video cameras have image stabilsation built in.
b) Or do they film at a far higher resolution than HD - to allow for stabilisation during editing.
Like I say, it's not the fact that image stabilisation is needed (as when wouldn't it be) - but rather the huge amount that must be being used to get stable HD images - and if so - that the equipment must be filming at far higher resolutions to permit this..
