FLUID HEADS AND TRIPODS:
Usually I don’t read post on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice article.
Hi,that Kenyon gyro looks awesome. Yet I could do with something smaller and cheaper to suit weight from 0.5kg ( Gopro 3D) up to 2kg ( DSLR ). Do you know any smaller car roof/boot mount guro stabilizers at budget price rather that these expensive beasts? Thanks

No unfortunately Gyros are too expensive. Rubber bands and that type of resistance is your best type of cheap stabilization – in fact the ATM gyro uses two heavy duty rubber bands WITH the gyros

@Vincent Laforet, Funny how all this changed with the Movi M5 / M10. Now gyro stab is becoming the norm !
I’m looking to buy my first tripod. I am a beginner and I don’t have a ton of money (I’m still in HS.) I’ve heard great things about Manfrotto and their prices seem reasonable. Should I get legs and head separately? And can the 501HD head be mounted on a bowl mount tripod? I want to be able to use the bowl head adjustments for easy leveling. Thanks!

Definitely go w/ a bowl mount. You honestly can’t go wrong w/ Manfrotto. I’d stear you towards a combo in the $700-$1,000 range that you can use long term (when you get to more weight on your camera w/ accessories / or bigger lenses) if you can afford it…
Did you ever use the Manfrotto 526 with a Epic? Or what recommendation will you give me in fluid heads + legs for Epic around 1500 and 1800 USD.

The 504HD and 508HD are both excellent and usually come in kits w sticks – and yes it will definitely support the Epic.
Vincent, in your Timelapse for beginners on the Canon Learning center, I saw a flat plate on the ground at the Fremont street what had a Manfrotto ballhead on it.
What is the name of this plate? Looks like “Over Pod@#$#” the video quality is pretty poor, not your content, it ‘s the resolution (380p?) they offer the viewers. The info was great and your tips are solid. Thanks for your time in response, T

Hi Vincent, can you share what do you use to connect that heavy rig onto the tripod? (the connection looks rock solid and steady) I’ve got a small but heavy cage rig (5d3,ntg2,tascam recorder, ninja2, battery) and I feel all the weight being supported by a small 1/4 inch quick release plate seems very unstable and I got this feeling it (the quick release screw holding on to the cage) may just break off any moment. I’m using a Benro s4 video monopod and can’t seem to find a stable connector to hold the cage to my video monopod. Any suggestions?
Did you have the opportunity to test this “movi” like : http://defygimbal.com/
A while ago I started practicing with stabilising systems. It’s great but tough! What camera settings (aperture, shutter speed) would you recommend for a Dslr on a Glidecam?
Thanks for this unique Blog. It’s been inspiring and helpful.
Thanks to share with us all your knowledge, really nice blog.
