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.
for those of you in the paris area, come and see us on the 14th for an all day seminar on storytelling in both photo and cinema. more info on our education blog stillmotionblog.com/author/education

first and foremost, thanks to canon live learning for making all of this possible (the bus and all). thanks to manfrotto for being so kind in providing 16 monopods plus tons more gear. thanks to cinevate for the shoulder rigs and atlas camera sliders. thanks to zacuto for the z-finders and DSLR rig. thanks to tiffen/lowel/steadicam for all of their lighting and stabilization support.
we setup for our first workshop tonight and it almost resembled the show floor of BH at times.

It is realy easy! Very, very easy! All you need are some special stuff and 3 minutes time.

Everyone knows the GoPro Hero HD a camera for sports photography and filming.
But have you ever tried to make slow movements with this camera.
Sure, we clamp the camera on a slider.
Yes that is the solution. A small 200 gram camera on a heavy weight pro Slider? I think that's something for bodybuilders.
I was visiting the Igus company in Germany, where I found something which is perfect for the GoPro, not only for the GoPro it is also perfect for all smaller cameras. Cameras from the consumer market. Like the Panasonic HDC-SD99, HDC-HS900, the Sony CX360VE, the Canons and so on.
All you need to build this Slider is:
- One screw and a camera plate, here from Manfrotto.
- A GoPro plate.
- And of course the material from Igus.
