Does anyone know of a rig, either a diy or store bought that will allow me to shoot myself 'hands free?' I am going to be taking a trip and wanted to document my travels, perhaps even with interviews (which would require a two shot) and want to mount a dslr on some sort of rig to allow me to shoot myself and interviewee...

Thanks

You have to use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules.

Wouldn't that be called a tripod or am I way misunderstanding the issue here?

Heh heh! I thought there must be something more to it!
I can't see you being able to do a 2 shot in that way but I could be wrong.
Obviously theres rigs for shooting just you in that way but it would look weird in the context you are talking about I think! ;)

The nearest thing I can think of is this:

I tend to keep it a secret tho because that robot is a better camera operator than a lot of stuff you see on uk tv! Yikes!
