    This was taken at the Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson AZ and was my first video (other than just 20 second tests etc) done with my new camera. Taking this video led me to buy a shoulder rig (fotodiox compact rig)

    Shot on GH3 with fotasy 35mm 1.7

    Thanks for looking - I have a LOT to learn...

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'd suggest a tripod with a fluid head so you can pan/tilt smoothly. Tripods with ball heads will give you the jerky movements when you pan or tilt.

    sounds like a great tip- will a video head work OK on a standard tripod? (Benro Travel Angel II is what I have)

    I'm not sure exactly. If your current tripod head is removable then I'd say yes. If not, you can still place a fluid head on top of your ball head anyway but with a screw adapter if it needs it.

    Also there seems to be a few affordable fluid head tripods with the legs included on Amazon that may work well. I have a cheap Targus that does have a fluid head. It gets the job done, but I'll end up getting a better one soon.
