Tip of The Week

Perhaps one of the most overlooked tools available to you to improve the quality of your digital movies is the tripod. As digital video cameras have continued to shrink in size, they have actually become more prone to camera shake. Holding a small digital camera still can be a challenge at best, even your breathing can be a source of camera shake. Every little movement of the camera has a negative affect on image quality and the use of a tripod or a monopod will eliminate this camera shake. Using a tripod or monopod can improve the image quality of your videos 10x!
