When it comes to filmmaking, the most reliable way to get smooth footage is to use a gimbal. While they come in all sorts of flavors and sizes, the most commonly purchased among the general consumer population are certainly the ones that are on the smaller end of the scale that is compatible with mobile phones. One of the newest gimbals comes from a Chinese company Snoppa in the form of the Atom. Which the company is claiming to be the world’s smallest gimbal.
If you ever wondered how film makers get those shots where the focus goes from foreground to background, it’s done with a Follow Focus. Which is basically a gear attached to a handle that allows the focus on a lens to be adjusted without touching the lens itself.
