I think that your best way to start is to take a look to the Charles King's web site Home built stabilizers.

If you purchase this, let us know what you think. I'm on the fence.

Hi Dennis,

There is a review in the May/June issue of Screen Talk magazine if this would be of any help in getting you off the fence one way or the other. There is also a "praise" section of the DVcameraRigs.com web site that doesn't filter out the bad e-mails. It's just that I haven't gotten any negative e-mails yet (with hundreds of books sold). Really! If you can't find screen talk magazine, I hope to have their review up on the site by July 1st. Currently, you can see what MacWorld had to say by clicking on the "reviews" link.
