A $2 handheld stabilizer

I searched the forums first before I posted and didn't find this on here so I thought I'd share this link with everyone. :)

Good job

Not sure which I enjoyed more, your device, or the presentation.

I thought you were going to say the handelbars were free because you stole the bicycle.

Nice job and thanks for sharing it with us.

I wouldn't say that the footage presented a "significant" reduction in roll and yaw--looked like regular old handheld to me.

I would think like any other stabilizer, it would take practice...bit of excess roll though throughout the footage.

Actually it wasn't me, the man is Rupert Chappelle. I came across his video when I did a search for "Steadicam" on that video site.

I'll give him credit for being resourceful, but I still don't think it'll compare to a Steadicam Merlin, IMHO. :)
