Homemade Steadicam Costs About $24,990 Less Than The Real Thing

There are few things that make handheld video look more polished and professional than the use of a Steadicam. And this homemade version is seriously cheap to put together.

This contraption is actually a gimbal mount, using a skate bearing, three sections of PVC piping, some wood and some nuts and bolts. Compared to a real Steadicam, which can set you back $US25,000 and up, this is a pretty great setup. Just look at the video he shot with it below!
