Gear to kill shakiness
I'm shooting a live music event this weekend and I'd like some help from you guys.
I use an a7s with C/Y zeiss lenses (no IS), and my main concern is shaky footage. I own a shoulder rig, a ronin M and a tripod. Of course, I won't use the tripod (i want to quickly react to changes in the stage) nor the ronin (it's a pain to be constantly re-calibrating the system with each new focal lens change). I'm 190cm tall, so shoulder rig is not that useful or comfortable, as I like to vary mi camera height a lot during the event.
So I've just got handheld. It's okay for wide lenses. The problem, of course, is using my tele lenses wich doesn't have IS.
That's it. What would you do? What's the most versatile combination of stuff that allows me to be fast, reactive, and able to capture all kinds of focal lengths with no shakiness? Of course I'll be using warp stabilizer in post, but I want to be as clean as possible from the beginning.
