When we shoot videos for clients, we often shoot handheld with this DIY video camera rig, featuring the Joby Gorillapod 5K. We will show you how to get smooth footage on a DSLR or mirrorless camera using handheld video techniques without the need of a gimbal. Our cameras are the Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T3 camera, paired with the Fujinon 18-55mm lens. This GorillaPod rig includes two bendable arms to hold video camera accessories, such as a light, video monitor, and external microphone.
* EVERYTHING IN OUR DIY VIDEO CAMERA RIG –
Many videographers prefer to use gimbals, but gimbal stabilizers require more pieces and can be difficult to balance a camera and operate. We do have the Zhiyun Weebill Lab Gimbal (watch that review here: but more often than not, we reach for this Gorillapod Video Rig instead, due to its versatility, compact size, and ease of use without the need for batteries.
