Shaky footage is just as annoying to watch as only having half the action. Check out this edit of Lewis Sonvico – great riding but after a while the possibly caffeine-induced camera shake gets more than a little off-putting.
Again a pole helps, just loosen your grip a little and try and absorb any shaking in your hand and wrist. I once did some filming with a guy who literally couldn’t stop his hands from shaking when he got excited watching someone’s riding. To try and help I built my own glide-cam rig with a few DIY gimbal joints; you don’t have to go to such extreme lengths but try and keep it in mind when filming.
