PVC monopod/boom/stabilizer

This clever $30 setup is basically a Targus TG-MP6710 monopod with a large PVC base for it. The base lets it work as a stabilizer, and the fact that it’s on a pole lets you use it as a boom. You can also flip it upside down so the camera is close to the ground for “doggie cam” shots — you just have to rotate the clip in your favorite video editing application.
