Still getting shaky videos :(

Hi, I got a new Wondlan Leopard II today and tested it indoor . I had great expectations , but looks like it, it gives no different experience that handheld. May be, Im new to it, but I dont know, what else can be improved.

I connected them well, stabilized the camera and weight on both sides for equal weight and then tried.

Not impressed :(

Anything else, which I should be doing ?

Im uploading the video (low res for demo) , which I took as a test.

Re: Still getting shaky videos :(

There is only ONE way to get better footage with a camera stabilizer.

Practice.

LOTS of it.

There is NOTHING magical about an image stabilizer.

It is ALL operator skill.

Hire a professional steadicam operator (with rig if possible) for a day to test your stuff and train you.
