Simple DSLR video stabilization

Here’s a method to get simple DSLR video stabilization. Having a gimble is a great tool, but perhaps you can’t afford one.

Shape hotshoePut a hotshoe handle on your DSLR to carry it. Your resulting video won’t necessarily be as good as if you used a gimbal, but it may be steady enough to get satisfactory results.


In my test here, I didn’t try to hold the DSLR steady when I walked, just to show how big an improvement you can get using FCPX’s stabilization. I use a Shape DSLR HotShoe handle, $69.
