I would like to have an answer on a specific shot. I´m helping a DP test a few shot to a feature he his working with. We have tried 2 sort of set ups.
The first is with steadicam about 3 m up in the air, hard mounted. I felt that it was a little bit tricky since the speed of the vehicle wast´t constant and it was on a windy day. The picture is good but it waves from side to side.
The other was with an equipment called G motion & chapman vertical vibration isolator. also about 3 m up in the air. It looked good from down but I thought that the picture was to shake. I think that they are gonna do some work to stabilize the image later on postproduction
My question to you is if I use Gyros on the steadicam, do you think that it would help/better. The framing is from above looking about 45 degrees down. As static as possible.
Many thanks for the help.
