    Image Stabilization for video

    Like with stills we like to shoot also video handheld. But soon we realized that we are too shaky (especially mild tele range).

    We tried Final Cut Smoothcam and were not very happy (seems to have issues with the rolling shutter of the new CMOS large chips.

    Now we discovered 2 new solutions Coremelt Lock&Load and Mercalli V2. They both give us hope that handheld may work for also in video.

    Here is a test we did in Final Cut:

    Wow!

    Huge difference. I also saw the stuttering that one commenter mentioned when I viewed it from the website, but the pans were flawless when viewed from a downloaded file.

    Thanks, Uwe,

    >I also saw the stuttering

    Stuttering is always very hard to judge because it can be:

    - The actual movement ( use a god fluid head though)
    - The camera recording
    - The playback (of course you never can judge from the Internet) but even 1080p can be challenging for many machines
