  2. here it is, a long journey that began with a crazy proposal to Canon well over 8 months ago, culminating in a almost a month living on a bus, touring the country, and meeting some amazing people along the way. our last tutorial is an introduction to stabilizers for EOS cameras. it covers our hands down favorite too, the monopod (answering the most commonly asked question and some tips and tricks), our take on sliders (the atlas LTS 30 by cinevate featured here), as well as a breakdown on stabilizers (featuring the steadicam merlin). i hope you enjoyed the series of tutorials, stay tuned for what's in store in 2011.
