A cool support for your cell phone to shoot like a pro!

Shooting with phone/cameras gives you jittery video if you hand hold it.  iPhone is no exception and you already know this.  Many times there is no opportunity to get out the tripod and fit the phone into a special frame 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.

Please click on the video clip below and see an iPhone-4S mounted on this portable platform. No image stabilization, no edits or cheating… you’re looking at the footage as it came out of the camera… it was HAND HELD with our BlackWing rig!

(A tiny amount of movement in the image is desirable to give ‘life’ to the footage. Not to be overdone as with those ‘shaky-cam’ scenes you see all the time. Those are really annoying and does nothing to advance the story. Watch how a pro does this effortlessly with this rig.)

A first time shooter with the iPhone or any phone can make video like this one.

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.

Tips for the BlackWing HG-2, HG-3 models.

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.

A good example of an iPhone-4S video taken at night. The lighting was really bad but the video shows more details than what you can actually see with your own eyes. Another interesting note, if you set the video recording to minimum GAIN (noise in the picture), you won’t have all those mosquito-like noise in your video!

This is how easy to use this BlackWing-HG2 model.

Take your phone, snap it in the clip and shoot. There are no complicated procedure and get this, you can leave the phone in its protective case!
