I have a Pilot and I'm looking for tips on running. Basically the main issue I see is that as soon as I start moving at a relatively quick pace, I start seeing vertical jiggles in the video. I've narrowed down the issue to the vibrations transferring from either my left hand on the gimble/post, or to my right hand on the handle (most likely the latter).
Running at high(er) speeds makes it more difficult to keep the camera/post in control which makes me have the tendency to try to keep it in control, resulting in more contact/gripping of the handle.
I also look at my feet control and rather than taking large strides like one would normally do while running, I take smaller controlled steps. The main problem is that it becomes difficult to reach the high speed I want and it gets really tiring.
So just looking for tips on what works for you.
Now I am in no way comparing stabilizers/technique here... but I recently watched a parkour video based on the Assassin's Creed video game. It was shot on Glidecam 4000 with a RED and no vest, so you can imagine the sheer weight the camera op had to hold during each shot. Now what intrigued me was how he was able to film high speed running scenes with nary any jiggles like what I'm seeing -- and I'm not even running as fast as him.
