$14 Steadycam The Poor Mans Steadicam

Interested in making your own version of The Shining? How about the last shot of Titanic? If you are like most film students that does not have $1500 lying around to buy a steadycam, this website will show you how to build one for $14. That's right...$14. If you have no technical skills, who cares. The site's author will build you one for the low price of $39.95. This guy is a genius.

$14 Steadycam The Poor Mans Steadicam: "Steadycams (or camera stabilizers) are attachments used to capture smooth looking video even when the camera and camera operator are in motion. The camera operator may walk (or even jog), move through tight hallways and doorways, and even climb up and down stairs without shaking the camera...I decided to make my own version. It turns out, it only costs $14. Not too bad. And I'll show you how to build your own right here (or you can buy a ready-to-use steadycam from me through this website [littlegreatideas.com]). "
