Tips on Balancing a camera:

When in production sometimes it can be hard to balance your camera, especially when shooting an action shot. Here are a few tips to make sure you have a good even shot without any shaking:
  • Use a tripod with a leveler.
  • On the tripod make sure the bubble balancer is in the middle of the circle.
  • When holding your camera lean up against something that is solid.
  • Sit Indian Style and place your back up against a solid wall etc.
  • Get on one knee, point the camera, and place an elbow on the top of the leg not bracing the ground.
  • Lay on a flat service while putting your elbows on the ground to balance the camera.
  • Place the camera on something solid that is not moving.
  • Sit on the ground and prop your knees up almost Indian Style and brace your elbows on your knees while sitting.
  • Use a tripod.
These are a few ways to use a camera and get good balance. These are also ways to get good shots with your camera without having the camera shake. Good luck.
