Smooth Operator- Gimbal Workshop with Lilli Kuschel

A gimbal is a device to stabilize cameras with the help of inbuilt motors and sensors, to get fluid and smooth video footage while moving the camera through space. In this practical camera workshop we practiced the workflow of a filmshooting using a gimbal and smaller digital cameras: mounting and balancing the camera on the gimbal, focussing while moving and recording, modes and settings of the the gimbal and remote controlling the gimbal. We practiced different types of camera movements like dollying, tracking, trucking, pushing in and pulling out or the 360 degree ark shot and explore their different effects. We have worked with the Zhiyun Weebill S and smaller digital cameras like the Sony Alpha 7S or the Panasonic GH5.
