The Single Best Way to Improve Your Videos? Use a Tripod:
If you take both photos and movies with your camera, then the Compact Photo-Movie Kit is your ideal first tripod: you can switch it between dedicated photo and video modes for super-sharp, steady images or smooth, level films.
The Compact Photo-Movie Kit's built-in "grip"-style head has a Photo/Movie Mode Selector:
In Photo mode, you can rotate the camera freely anywhere between landscape and portrait orientation for creative angles.
In Movie mode it will keep the camera level and in landscape orientation but will let you pan left-right smoothly to track moving subjects or take in wide vistas.
A single easy locking control locks the camera firmly in place for pin-sharp steady shots.
Your camera attaches via a convenient quick release plate, which can stay fixed to the underside of your camera at all times so you're always ready to go.
