Videomaker’s sweepstakes for a Glidecam HD-2000 is about to end. Passing up this chance is saying no to the possibility of a free camera stabilizer. We know you can get competitive, but please share this news! In the event that you don’t win, know that one of your fellow videographers might have needed it even more. Since there’s no electronics involved in the HD-2000, there is just one thing you can do to improve your floating camera shots: Practice. Get your camera setup going and try your hand, knees and feet at the challenge of producing smooth movement. Bending at the knees and reducing bounce with your feet is all part of smooth handheld shooting.
You can enter the sweepstakes here: http://www.videomaker.com/Glidecam-Giveaway. Let’s promote good community among us video producers and share knowledge with each other. Constructively critique one another’s video, learn from those that use similar equipment to your own. Strike up a conversation about a camera, and if you’re short on topics, read our eNews and you’ll have plenty of conversation starters.
The bottom line is this: Only one of you will get our Glidecam HD-2000, but each of you can learn along the way.
