Videography can get mightly expensive for many.
The cost of stabilizers, gliders, magnifiers, and all the robotic-looking gadgets in addition to an already expensive set of camera/lens gear makes it an intimidating hobby to get into.
However, as with any form of visual art,sticking to one or two key components that you can master will always be a more efficient way of doing things, particularly if you don’t have deep pockets.
