I'm new to camera stabilization and I want to know if a smaller camera is more difficult to get clean, non bouncing shots. I use a dslr mounted on a stabilizer and tried a vest and arm unit and my shots looked like I was in an earthquake.
I've watched every stedicam video I could find on youtube and all the units I see have large camera's that weight much more than what I am using. And those shots are smooth as glass.
I want to know if adding weight, or creating a rig that will create more "camera" would mimic the look. When I use hand held, which the unit (with a gimble) has, my video looks ok. I can still see bounce and my horizon doesn't stay flat.
I don't want to invest thousands into a hobby, but I'm looking for a fix to get similar results to the larger rigs.
Am I barking up a tree here?
