I am looking for some sort of vibration controler that can be used with light weight camers. I have a Sony PD 150 camera, which is quite light, and does't control jerks very much. Handheld shots give earth quack like effects.

So what you guys suggest? What kind of support i should get to achive a smooth movming shots. I am looking for a cheap but effective grip, which can be used DSLR's as well.

Another thought, what these NAT GEO travelogue guys used for thier videos. What camers do they use? I mostly come across such situations, where you have to shoot what you find, and shoot as it happens. I make indepenet short documentaries mostly, where you have to record all the activites, and you have to constantly move, and can not miss the speaches etc.

So, any advises, suggestions......please drop few lines with your experience.

Best.....................

One of the smaller Steadicams or GlideCams might do what you want.
