Does anyone have experience stabilizing a camcorder on a boat? When I tried a monopod on the floor of the boat, my HV40 looked like jello. Any tips will be appreciated. I have been doing corporate video for 20 years, however I do some side work and I have never encountered extream jello cam before. Also, are there settings in the menu that I might change in order to get a better picture.
At the end of the day, I held the monopod above the floor of the boat (floating the cam.) and it did result in removing most of the jello look, but there is probably a better way.
In addition, I am sort of looking for the "poor man's" solution. In other words, I really do not want a super high dollar solution for a $600 HDV camera. So try to take that into account when you reply.
