Smooth (Camera) Operator

According to YouTube’s statistics page, 72 hours of video are uploaded to the site every minute. That’s a lot of competition for eyeballs if you are hoping your videos will stand out enough to draw in viewers. Even if you don’t care about the size of your audience and just want your videos to look good for the folks back home, this classic hack will help your camera work look more professional.

The example in the video may be a little boring, but you’re not limited to shots of your back yard. With a little practice, the rubber band technique will have you smoothly capturing every stride of Timmy’s record breaking 440 yard dash. Take this hack to the beach or the mountains and show off Mother Nature’s sweeping beauty with a smooth pan of a great looking panorama.
