A Quick Comparison

Apropos of nothing, I did a quick comparison of the STEADICAM Smoothee and the HAGUE Mini Motion-Cam stabilizer, using a Canon T2i. The video is here:

A few more details in the description there. I'd love to see more Blackbird footage, if anyone has any.
Cheers.

So, let's hear it for the HAGUE Mini Motion-Cam then!

Indeed. The Mini Motion-Cam really is a great tool for a great price!

Re: A Quick Comparison

Interesting, though not an apples-to-apples comparison, obviously. The T2i has much more mass than the iphone (which should give an advantage to the T2i), yet I thought the smoothie footage was slightly better than the Hague version. Less bounce and less rolling in the horizon.

Thanks for posting.
