Make your own Steadicam (?)

Anyone tried this? I am definitely going to give this a try. It seems easy enough. I already made my own crane. That was 5 hours of fun and it looks awesome on video!!

The crane cost me $38 when all was said and done.

OK I searched and found some plans... now I have to wait on the arrival of my XL1...

I wouldn't call building a steadicam easy, but it's certainly possible.

Cosmin knows what he's talking about. Do check out the great
site that it is Homebuilt Stabilizers. You can find more info on
Cody's plans on his site with a link to buy the book.
