A quick look at gear to keep your video on the level
Monostat RS16SL Carbon Art
If you’re just tinkering with video and not ready to invest in specialized video gear, consider these support options which are, at least, a wise investment for your still photography.
Giottos Pro Series II Ballheads
Although far better for stills than video, the swivel design of a ballhead does allow you to move the camera in any direction, and Giottos’ Pro Series II ballheads provide rotational freedom and complete maneuverability to follow the action. Threaded camera mounts, flanged edges and a safety lock with auto lock prevent camera slippage. Bubble levels also are available on some models for keeping video balanced. Estimated Street Price: Ranges from $16 to $223.
