What kind of stabilizer is this?



I've seen them used a lot more in recent videos and I've been trying to figure out exactly what it is. Looks like it's basically an upside down monopod with a handle but common sense tells me it must be something more than just that. If it's that simple of a product I could just use my monopod and two L brackets to make one

Don't have any experience with iMovie, but do have some experience with timelapses.

about 500mb... the thing is I am getting amazing IQ when I make the time lapse, and it is exactly how I want it... the only problem I am having is when I upload it to vimeo, it is terrible

Filming at a Concert.(mic help)

I recently got my first DSLR and I am getting into filming at a concert. I was hoping if any of you have had experience with this, you could guide me to an external microphone that will capture more of the music and not the crowd. (I will be filming from the front row, so the crowd will be behind me.) also I'm talking about small-name GA concerts, not big stadiums.

This. If you have to use a mic, look at the polar pattern. Use a cardioid or hyper cardioid. Those are directional mics. Omni will capture everything (with only a slight dip in what's behind it).

You could also pick up a Zoom or Tascam recorder. The mics on those are slightly directional.

Couple of things It clearly looks like you shot it on a dslr (which if thats the look you were going for, cool) The white balance looks different in pretty much every shot. I'm sure you didnt have access to lights, but actually lighting it could have given you a more unique style and helped with the white balance problem (assuming you use all the same color temp lights) Those prebuilt imovie effects dont really help much (that might have been a video copilot effect?) if you want to do some sort of effect it usually looks better if you build it yourself and change it a little so it looks more organic. But overall to me, it looks like a stereotypical music video someone shot on their t2i. Not saying that to be a dick i promise. I live in chicago and I see people making music videos for "up and coming" rappers every week and they all look the same except for a small few. If youre going to make a video, no matter what it is, go all out every time. get a crew together who like to make videos too. Yes i know getting gear as simple as lights can be hard. Worst case buy some scraps of CTO and CTB so you can correct lights. Hopefully everything i said makes sense, i just woke up. source: I work in tv as a grip. Ive also worked on a music video like this back when i was in school. (or just check the instagram)
