Portable solutions for your jittery video

Shooting with phone/cameras gives you jittery video if you hand hold it.  iPhone is no exception but you already know this.  Many times there is no opportunity to fit your phone into a special frame holder that allows you to mount it on the tripod. It’s just way too much hassle, right?

We have a cool rig for you here. Now you can shoot those ‘Pro’ videos you always wanted! We tested these rigs with many different phone/cameras. They all work with our BlackWing portable platform.

This is how it looks without the cell-phone at normal position. You can use it in this setting, but you should adjust it as described in the next panel >>>>>

When you hold the hand-grip, the clip should be turned parallel to your field of vision.

This is the most comfortable position for your wrist to hold the hand-grip.

Take a look at the pictures below. The cell-phone is moved to the left of the center. This gives you an easier view of the screen and additional support with your left hand, if needed. You may also find buttons on the top where the clip’s clamping action may trigger it. Look for a spot where the clip can hold the phone without pressing any button.

You can hold your cell-phone with one hand, but it is much steadier if you gently support it with your left hand.  

Notice the WRIST is in a NATURAL position this way. The unit may not look symmetrical, but this is the correct way to use the product. Experiment, fine tune the angle and position to suit you better.

What else you can do with this  BlackWing HG product after you shot your video?

Leave your phone in it, flip it around and place it on your desk. Kick back and play the movie. You can do the same with all phones and models as shown here with a Nokia-1020. When you’re done, grab the handle and ready to shoot again.

This will also becomes a convenient night-table stand as well. Easy to see who’s calling without picking up the phone.

Take a look how a film maker in New York used our BlackWing to create “Romance in New York” short movie.
