Should I use a tripod for videotaping invention prototypes?

Use a Tripod to Film Invention Prototypes

If you can get your hands on a tripod for your invention video, use it. Unnecessary motion in the camera frame distracts the viewer and may cause motion sickness. If viewers are distracted oby camera movement, they are not paying attention to your invention prototype.

If no tripod is available, the cameraperson should brace themselves against another stable surface like a wall or a chair. If the cameraperson must move while recording the invention, movements should be as slow and smooth as possible. Practice the movements ahead of time for best results.
