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!

    Any reason you linked to the 1st version of this guys diy steadicam and not the four other newer versions he's made since?

    You can use usual mop with a hinge to make stadycam :)
