All right. I've attached the GoPro here, using a hard case to the steady cam curve. Now it's important that you use the GoPro mount that keeps it right over the center here. Y don't want to use the arched one, because what's going to happen when you do that is that it's not going to properly balance. We also have a little knob here, so we can adjust. And as you turn that, it moves it sort of forward and back along this arch. You can actually see little marks right there to sort of help you know where you're at.
This could, of course, just be held as a handheld unit, like this, in a nice tight grip, but the key here is that you actually get some floating camerawork. So we just push the pin, and this releases, and when you balance it right, it actually hovers. Now you may have to use your thumb to sort of guide this a little bit, but that does do a nice job of giving you floating camera. If it's lagging one side to the other, the weight here can be turned and adjusted so it favors one side or the other, so you balance left to right.
Alright, there we go. Let's see if that's balanced. Not too bad. Feels pretty good there. And I can move that around, using my thumb for a little bit of guidance. And that's going to make it easy to actually walk and move with the camera, and get fluid floating camera work. Alright. We'll put that into action.
