One of the main problems with DSLR cameras is that they were designed for taking photographs and don’t have the correct form factor for shooting video. When shooting video with a DSLR camera, you must hold the camera out in front of you so that you can focus on the LCD screen. When holding the camera out in front of you, the camera becomes very unstable and produces shaky video. Therefore, some kind of support gear that stabilizes the camera and more importantly gets the camera into a proper position for correctly and comfortable shooting video is needed.
Smallest, lightest GoPro yet.
I just bought the HERO3+ Black Edition and it seems even more compact than the literature suggests – is 20% smaller and lighter than previous models and is compatible with all GoPro mounts and accessories—making it the most mountable, wearable and versatile GoPro ever. I bought it to place on (actually under) my DJI Phantom quadcopter – but it will also be used as a compact video camera to experiment with.
