Body Stabilizer Description
A camera body stabilizer is a device used to hold a camera on the body in a position that is as comfortable as possible for the camera operator while reducing the amount of shake and other unwanted movement in the camera. Any filmmaker who has tried to use a camera by hand knows that there is always some shake to the video no matter how still they try to make themselves. These stabilizers are designed to remove that shake as much as possible. The results can be very impressive, and there are a number of different types of stabilizers from which to choose.
Features of body stabilizers
When you are looking to rent or lease a body stabilizer, it is important to consider the type of camera you are using to make sure it is compatible. Most of the stabilizers will work with the majority of cameras used for movies and television broadcasts. In addition, you need to think about the weight of the camera and the other equipment that may attach to the stabilizer to make sure that it is capable of holding the weight securely.
How body stabilizers work
The stabilizer includes a harness that the camera operator will wear on his or her body, and will then mount the camera to it. Located beneath the camera is one or more handle grips for the user to hold. They can then move the camera smoothly in different directions, and they can be a huge benefit to the operator, as they let them concentrate on filming rather than worrying about everything they are carrying.
Carrying camera equipment can be exhausting. The equipment is often heavy, and there is generally a lot to carry. It can be difficult to move around. The stabilizer not only keeps the shake to a minimum, but it will reduce the amount of stress on the shoulders and arms of the operator. They are able to be comfortable and shoot longer.
