The filmmaker video series from ikan called The Drawing Board hits number two with two of their camera rigs.
When it comes to small to mid-sized camcorders and DSLR’s, stabilization and smooth camera movements are difficult to achieve with a handheld set-up.
To take your footage to the next level and add professional refinement to your projects, ikan has developed two stabilizing solutions: The Hoverfly and The BumbleBee.
George Tripsas from ikan describes how to assemble and use the Hoverfly and BumbleBee camera rigs.
The Hoverfly is a strong, single-handle shoulder rig that can be adjusted to comfortably fit your body using the rosette system; while the Bumblebee is a simple, handheld stabilizing solution that’s perfect for low sweeping shots.
Both rigs are durable and lightweight, and are perfect for the ENG or documentary style shooter. The H-plate supports small to mid-sized camcorders and has various mounting points for your camera.
