Handy hints for better photos and videos

If you like recording you trips on video and like to improve the angles with remove shakes, here some tips.

The first items in any photographers and videographers kit should be a good tripod with a good easily moving head (fluid head is the best but costs).

The tripod can act like a mono pod but if weight is an issue then a good mono pod is worth the investment.

If you feel you can build useful gear, here is a link to guy that made his own video stabiliser

Also, if you ever find you need to stablize your camera when you don't have a full sized tripod around, try a gorillapod.

I've used the SLR-zoon version (3kg rated) for 2 years now, and it has proved itself useful on many occaisions, most recently on a safari in africa!

Note: There's an even bigger model available now- can hold up to 5kg of camera!
