Get yourself a shoulder-mount for your DSLR movies

Trutap races to be the mobile IM aggregator of choice


That is, get one if you must. I hadn’t seen this Reverie movie until about a minute ago, but I assumed it was okay because of all the coverage it got for being shot on a DSLR (partly). Unfortunately, it’s awful, and I don’t think it’s because he didn’t have a shoulder mount for his cameras. Anyway, if you’re trying to shoot in HD and you’re so budget that you’re shooting on a D90, are you really going to drop $1500 on accessories? With that and lighting you’re already above the price of something like a Scarlet or a good old HG20. Furthermore, given the motion problems of the DSLRs, I wonder why you’d even want to shoot handheld at all.

I think Redrock has had one of these things for a while, but I can’t find it. Zacuto’s a good company too, but the very idea is ridiculous.
