The Moza Slypod is the craziest looking camera slider you ever saw

At NAB 2019, Gudsen announced the new Moza Slypod. It’s a kind of slider/monopod hybrid that looks pretty weird but is also very cool. When we saw it, we were intrigued, so we went to have a chat with them about the Slypod to find out more about how it worked and what it can do.

New MagPod for PMAG Gen 3

MagPod – a patented baseplate for the Gen2 Magpul PMAG magazines, that functions both as a monopod and a magazine (ammunition) identifier and reloading aid.  I only have one, given to me by a friend, and I think they’re great.

Steadicam gets into the monopod game with their new carbon fibre “Gas Lift” Steadicam Air

Libec’s new HFMP video monopod lets you go completely hands-free

Shooting video from a tripod isn’t always the easiest thing to do. They’re big, unwieldy, and while they serve a fantastic purpose, they’re not always fit for purpose. At sporting events, for example, it can often be difficult to turn quickly enough to follow fast action. For regular events where you’re mingling with other people, […] The post Libec’s new HFMP video monopod lets you go completely hands-free appeared first on DIY Photography.

Monopods are a wonderful tool to have if you need that extra little bit of image stability or happen to have a heavier lens attached to your camera.

Eight Ways to Awesome Photos

One of the worst moments in photography is when you get things back on the computer from a shoot to see that dreaded blur instead of an awesome photo (or awesome photos)!  If only you had been able to stabilize the camera more.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been confidant enough in my own abilities to think “I can hand hold that shot”. The truth of the matter is, most of us can’t!  So, avoid the blur whenever possible When trying to capture images where light is low, a sense of movemen...
