I am looking to enter the field of real estate video. I was wondering what is the cheapest and best 3 axis hand held gimbal you or your readers might recommend – or would a good dolly work for interiors. I shoot primarily with the Canon 5D Mark III and a 16-35mm lens.
When most people starting out shooting real estate video they start out with a slider and a jib. A good 3 axis handheld stabilizer is quite expensive. Here are some stabilizers that readers are using:
As Fred Light recommended on a getting started in video post a while back – There is a lot of expensive gear you need to do video so start out slow and make sure that video is really your thing. You can probably get started without a stabilizer unless you are going to only do walk through video. My sense is that there are a lot of people shooting property videos without stabilizers.
What kind of stabilizers are readers using to shoot property video? Do you even use a stabilizer?
