Has anyone operated with an easyrig and serene arm without a gimbal? If so has the serene arm helped reduce the side to side motion when going hand held? I plan on operating a Millenium XL2 and am hoping to reduce some of the hand held look. I just don't want the hand held look to be too intense if that makes sense.

 

Thanks!

-Mike

Hi! 

I have and it helped a lot!

 

The difference between walking shots with the Easyrig only and the Easyrig with the Cineflow Serene is like day or night.

It also helps greatly when doing hand-held static shots. 

 

I can't recommend it highly enough.

 

Have a good day.

You're welcome!

Just take into consideration the height of the easyrig + serene when passing through doors or similar "human-size" spaces (if you have to pass through any) because of the Serene.

I don't know if you have used the Serene before but if you haven't, I would recommend going to the camera rental house and using it for a while following people, it takes a bit of time to get used to it and you might need to change the way you walk slightly.

Other than that, it is the perfect match for the easyrig.

Have a lovely day!
