Tripods are invaluable, with their obvious benefits being consistently smooth and steady footage which makes for a less distracting viewing experience. They also make it easier for you to fine-tune your composition.
However, to create something truly unique and original you sometimes need to break the rules. Don’t be afraid to remove your camera from its tripod occasionally and practise shooting handheld and on-the-go.
If you hold your camera as steady as possible and close to your body you can minimise any distracting movements, as you navigate the scene with freedom.
If you wish to produce exciting and eye-catching angles that simply would not be possible with your camera stuck on a tripod, we recommend considering a gimbal - this will take your handheld shots to the next level, and beyond.
