How can I make a homemade Mini Stedicamgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread
I'm sure this question might have been asked before, I apologize for not taking the time to look through all the questions, forgive me. So the question is does anybody know where I can go to get a schematic for the Mini Steadicam, not the steadicam Jr. I'm talking about the Mini Steadicam with the balance arm and vest. Anyone, anyone? Buller? Anyone?
I thank you in advance.

hey bud, as far as a heavier camera like the xl1s or dv500 im not sure , but for a smaller handheld or even up to a Panasonic 24p look at this web site http://www.student.virginia.edu/~fms-uva/steadycam/ I made one and it actually works suprisingly well.

Yes, actually I've made a few. Each version being better & lighter than the previous. The're not easy to make at all, but after a lot of trial and error my latest model works great. I will put together some photos & instructions for it first chance I get. But like I said: They're not easy to make.
