More Merlin Footage

I did a quick edit of a waltz, flying a TRV900 on a Steadicam Merlin:

... and a quick edit of some footage (same camera setup) from Ripken Stadium on Ironbirds Corporate Sponsors Day:

Some nice lookign footage ther Armin.

I paticularly like that first Frisbee shot of the 2nd video - where the disc is thrown past eh camera on teh left but then sails off to the right as the camera goes into roundy-roundy.

A couple of tips:
Ease off your gimble (pan&tilt) hand just a little, maybe make the rig just *slightly* less bottom heavy (longer drop time) too.
Also watch your headroom a little, there where a lot of shots where I coudl see you where concentrating on teh subjects face, and putting them desd center, with a lot of space overhead.

Just some tips, overall it looked prety decent :)
