Poor man's Steadicam...
Posted 19 January 2007 - 03:56 PM
In my search for something other than a tripod to keep my camera steadi (geddit?) I have happened upon this extremly low budget option called ''the poor man's steadicam''.
Is there anyone who has tried this and can tell me whether this is a nice little tool or a piece of C.R.A.P?

this isn't the right forum. You need to visit steadiforum.com
It's a forum for homemade stabilizers and small size steadicams.

Basically it just makes a handheld camera heavier and slightly smoother.

Just buy a monopod, get a clamp and a barbell weight (a 2.5 pounder, or 5 pounder), slide the weight up a couple inches on the bottom of the monopod, put the clamp under it, and you're done!
I even put a fluid head on mine, so I can pan & tilt.
