We introduced StillMotion a while back on their site with their insightful series Story Telling: The StillMotion Way. They’re back again with this short but productive video on tips for shooting handheld with a DSLR, this is without rigging or a shoulder-rig, just the bare basics of your two hands and neck.

 Here Patrick covers some valuable tips for shooting handheld, whether you want your footage to look raw or smooth.

    Thanks for the tip:P I’ve also used the camera strap around my elbow so the camera gets stuck in my hand. Pretty effective as well:)

    Thank you for this video, it’s helpful ;) I was just wondering, is it Zacuto Z Finder JR. or the Pro ?
