Building Your Own DIY Camera Stabilizing Rig


In this tutorial, we are going to create a cheap and effective steadying rig for shooting video. It is quick and easy to build. I'll cover all the parts and tools needed to build it.


It's not an easy to task to get steady video while handholding your camera. It's even harder to do when walking around or changing angles. The simplest way to get a smoother shot is to make your camera heavier, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

While I'm busy adding thing to my camera, I might as well add a working platform to add other accessories, like an HD monitor.
