Capture better video with a simple, inexpensive camera stabilizer made from ordinary PVC pipe.
You will use simple drill, cutting skills on PVC pipe with a few screws to raise the bar on your video capture needs.
measure and mark your cuts that you calculated or eyeball it like I did on my first one
Cut use a metal blade
Drill pilot holes
create a camera mount. anything from using a tripod quick release shoe (like me) to sliding mounts.
Ballance -- attache your camera and count how many seconds it takes to fall. 2-3 perfect, less than 1=too heavy use less weight, 3 or more=too light use more weight.
Congratulations you finished!
