Low mode operating

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm interested to hear some tips on low mode operating. It seems that I have to work a LOT harder than operating in high mode, almost like I have to fight it all the time, altough it is properly balanced. Are there things I'm overlooking? 

I fly a Masters Series.

Really make sure you focus on maintaining your posture - it's very easy to think you should bend your knees more or operate in a crouched  position or lean forward, in order to try to get the camera lower - whether consciously or subconsciously.

If you find you feel like your fighting the sled, take a second check your posture, let go of the gimbal and arm - is the sled shooting toward or away from you? side to side? If so take a moment to regain proper balance, or adjust your vest, etc.

fighting the sled is always going to make any operating (high or low) a lot more exhausting than it needs to be.  Just remember, you can always take a moment to find if you are fighting the sled and in it what ways, adjust and proceed.

Smooth sailin.
