Achieving the perfect shot takes more than a good camera. You’ll not only need an abundance of raw talent, but an apparatus or two to accomplish this. You could always opt for an expensive tripod or steadicam, but that’ll put you in the hole before you complete and sell your first vignette; they often cost at least a few hundred dollars.
The Cam Caddie Video Stabilizer effectively converts any DLSR into a professional grade camcorder. It utilizes the weight of the camera to stabilize shots, reducing if not removing shakes and jolts without the usual myriad of counter weights and complicated adjusters. The curved handled is designed to mimic that of a scropion and leaves enough room (6-inches of space) for even the most obtuses lenses. And Mounting it is as simple as screwing a standard tripod thumb screw.
