Camera shake is never enjoyable to see in travel videos, yet it’s SO hard to avoid.
As video creators, we may set out with the intention to hold the camera steady, yet still end up with shaky, unusable footage.
We all know that a fancy gimbal will do the trick to capture perfectly smooth footage, but it might not be worth the effort with the added expense AND bulk to your travel video production gear.
Of course, there is software known to do a great job at stabilizing footage, but even Warp Stabilizer (part of Adobe Premiere Pro) only works perfectly on some footage.
Not to mention, I know so many of you are using other platforms for editing!
Personally, I use Final Cut Pro.
The good news is, there are MANY things you can do to minimize camera shake in your videos.
In this video, I share 10 TIPS for capturing smooth video footage.
Combine a few of these techniques, and you’re on your way to MUCH smoother video footage that will WOW your viewers- or at least not annoy them.
These tips will help you create a well-produced travel video with less camera shake overall.
