to camera is a classic technique, made easy by the best Canon vlogging cameras such as the Canon EOS M50 Mark II
with its vari-angle screen and the tilt-able touchscreen on the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
, which allow you to see yourself while filming. Investing in a grip, however, will help refine your handheld content even further. Grips open up new, comfortable camera angles and benefit the aesthetic of your footage, too. The tilting mount on the Canon Tripod Grip HG-100TBR
allows vertical shooting – perfect for when you're shooting for Instagram stories or TikTok. And using its extra reach, you can achieve higher, more flattering selfie angles, giving your posts a polished edge.
The Canon Tripod Grip HG-100TBR can also double as a tripod for creative flexibility, providing a stable shooting base for full-body shots, tutorials or wide scenes including your surroundings or friends. TikTok star and dancer Nifè
uses this grip for a range of content, often pairing its built-in Bluetooth remote with the movie self-timer on her EOS M50 Mark II.
"Sometimes I shoot handheld but sometimes I need to set up and move back. I might need my torso in shots or my full body. I have to be able to move around and I need time to get into position before I start," she says. "The remote is really convenient. It means my clips are shorter. I don't have to edit out the beginning or restart music because the track started ages ago."
