Do you struggle with shaky hands when you’re trying to film something? And don’t want to spend extra time using warp stabilizer? Or spend a load of money on expensive gimbals and steadicams (I know I don’t). Well in this video I show you a few tips on how to stabilize your handheld footage using nothing but a Joby Gorillapod (It’s cheaper and waaaaayyyy more versatile for a beginner film maker or youtuber than the expensive pieces of stabilizing gear you can buy).

When I first got into photography and film making on YouTube, I really struggled to keep my hands steady, which made getting smooth footage really difficult; that was until I discovered a couple of the techniques in this video, which I’ve used to get some smooth footage in some difficult situations.

You can find the Gorilla Pod and Two Ball Heads right Here:
