Humble Monkey camera truck

Here's a video preview of a neat little product we're testing for the May issue of PDN magazine: the Humble Monkey 360-T2 camera truck.

We tried out this cool camera dolly -- which is designed to give you steady tracking shots with your HD-DSLR -- with frequent PDN co-tester Jason Groupp, a New York-based photographer who put this video together.

After trying out the camera truck in Jason's studio with a Canon 5D Mark II attached, he took it out to the New York subway system to test it in the wild. As you'll see in the hilarious clip below, Jason and his crew attracted a lot of attention in the subways including a serenade from a potential American Idol contestant.
