MAKE Flickr photo pool member Method8 posted up an enhanced “FigRig” (a small DV camera stabilizer made from PVC) – “I used shygantic’s model and measurements to build mine. I included some enhancements so as to be able to use the camera’s remote control on the figrig. I used black PlastiK spray (like the one used for plastic car bumpers) and did two stickers on the sides at a Car Graphics Shop to give it a pro look. More comments with the other pics… “ [via] – Link.
