Upside down dancing

Sometimes I shoot dance scenes, and I get a kick out of shooting some parts from different angles, high and low, etc. But what's really neat is shooting some parts at a 45 degree angle and even upside down. (I know, I'm twisted.) Has anyone tried this? Hmmm..., I wonder how the OIS would react to this?

Oops, almost forgot. Shooting at a 90 degree angle looks like the crowd is dancing up the wall.

The OIS should be unaffected Frank as it's only measuring (and reacting to) camera movement.

I shot at the bottom of a swimming pool with the camera at 90 degrees, and as you say - the swimmer seems to be swimming vertically up one of the walls. Makes it look like a very deep pool.

Thanks Tom! I was wondering about that. You test/review cameras---for what magazine? I seem to recall you mentioning this.

Yes, I write for Film and Video Maker magazine. It's the mag produced for the IAC - the Film and Video Institute.
