Hello folks,

I want to start a discussion among the filmmakers around here who use tracking shots (not to be confused with pans or tilts). I am interested in knowing how you achieve these shots and make them as fluid / stable as possible.

In my case, I use a slider (e-photo 1.20m, do not recommend, it wobbles) or hand held. In either case, I have limits and setup times to take into account. I am trying to use a Laing P-4S but once balanced it seems to wobble side to side when I move with it (maybe I don't know how to use it? I am practicing and it seems to be improving).

Share you tracking shots techniques and gear!
