Ok, so this is really much of a review, but I just wanted to post a quick blog about a new bit of kit I acquired earlier this week.

I’ve taken on a few more video assignments this year, so figured now would be a good time to invest in some new tools to help me in this area.   The first of which was a new gimbal.

Earlier this year I bought a stabiliser – a basic one, that required the user to balance the camera using weights.  To be blunt, I haven’t got the patience to mess around with that – when you’re changing lenses, payload can be a variable figure.  So with each change, you need to adjust the stabiliser to suit.

You still have the same thing with a gimbal, but it doesn’t seem to be too much of an issue.  The fact that the A2000 has measurements, means you can make notes and adjust the gimbal fairly swiftly.

Anyhow, I’ve only really had to today to mess around with it.  So with a Fuji X-T1 and 23mm f1.4 lens attached (not the best combination for putting a video together!), I headed outside this afternoon and filmed my daughter in the garden.

Below is the result.
