A brush-less gimbal in Egypt

Postby sidd finch » Mon May 29, 2017 1:02 pm

Doing some more testing on a 3 axis brush-less gimbal at the local Egyptian Museum. It is a place I like to record video since the location is so different. The drone shots are stock footage and I did not shoot that footage.

Beautiful, as always, Sidd!

What's a brushless gimbal?

You have a talent for choosing intriguing angles and pans. I have to wonder where all the people were. Very calming, relaxing. Looks like a place I'd like to visit. ::CLAP:

Thank you Bob & Dave.

I like to get out early before anyone is at the museum and I try to get there during the golden hour so I can take advantage of the different morning light. I also try to capture angles that are not expected and unique to the location. A lot of time it is the sunlight and color that catches my eye as I am walking by that I try to capture.

The gimbal really helps to keep the camera steady so that I can walk around and record in addition to putting the camera on a tripod.

I appreciate your feedback.

Just a little trivia... at about 10 seconds in you can see a bunch of tall buildings off in the distance on the right side of the video. The buildings to the right are Adobe's world headquarters (3 towers).

Smooth work Sidd! Would love to have a brushless gimbal for my Sony compacts. I do have the Stedicam Curve for GoPro, but haven't used it in a long time. (Good deal if someone wants to buy it from me. )

Thanks Mom.

The brush-less gimbals really seem to work well for me. I had recorded myself walking through a crown with the camera over my head and it was exceptionally smooth.

There are so many competing brands that the price is always coming down. B&H has a decent one for $500

Would love to have something like that. I am saving up for a new lens, but you may have sidetracked me yet again. :mrgreen:

Now I know how a kid feel when they walk into a Toys-R-Us store.
