4. Use of good lighting conditions
5. Use of high frame rate to correct it in post production
How to record stable videos :
You can record any Video by using expensive 3 axis gimbals or steady cam which if you have is preety awesome but you can also record wide angle shakey footage and stabalise it in post production later. Also you can make your own DIY steady cam with just putting some weight in a stick and balancing the camera according to it.
Lighting conditions :
Most important step in recording is focusing on lighting conditions. Light should be at the side or towards the face of the object. So that your object is well luminated. Also be sure to capture all the highlights and learn about highlights, whites shadows and blacks with a colour graph. This is mostly used in post production.
You have to set some basic functions in the camera like ISO, Focos, white balance and shutter speed. Also you could record in a log format which will make your video flattest as possible which is a god in post production. You can grade your video in softwares like premiere pro pr Da Vinci Resolve to get a good result.
