Super simple camera crane for sweeping shots



Using some 2×2 lumber, bolts, scrap metal, and the stand from a work light, the folks behind built this DIY Camera Crane. This setup can be used to take video from really high in the air or low to the ground, allowing you to precisely control the perspective of your shot. To make sure that the camera is pointed in the right direction, the video feed is displayed on a small LCD monitor in the base of the unit. [via Hacked Gadgets]
