Testing the Warp Stabilizer effect in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Footage shot with a Canon 7D with 100-400 L f5.6 using a Manfrotto monopod.

The monopod lends great mobility and convenience for wildlife shooting in the field, but at the price of image stability. There will always be some movement compared to the near absolute rigidity of a good video tripod. Unfortunately, good tripods are heavy (even my carbon fibre Manfrotto) and unwieldy to set up, plus difficult to move around for better angles.

The Premiere Pro Warp Stabilizer effect certainly mitigates the inherent movement using a monopod, even at its default 50% smoothness setting. Will have to try the lockdown setting next.
