DIY Steadicam - on Metalworking and Movies


Here is the pic as promised of the tennis racket that I sliced up with my camcorder next to it, so you can get an idea of how far along I am in this project.

Next I need to source/fabricate the following:

* usable gimble to attach to a handle. Wsclater's site had some recommendations that I will check out.
* Metal plates to fasten to the boom and camera
* Washers and bolts to serve as weights & counter-weights

Probably more is needed, but still need to do more planning and study
