As mentioned in previous threads, I was getting sick of scrubbing out bad audio due to my ZR40's motor noise. I went to Best Buy today for a mic. I was delighted to find out that it had a pivoting mount on the hotshoe. That's when I got a little excited and used
this tutorial (http://www-2.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/steadycam/) to build a stedicam for $14. I added pipe insulation for grip, and red paint for coolness. With that, my new mic and wide angle lens, I'm unstoppable.

Now I just need a project.

Nice, now if you make a really good movie and get lots of money you can buy a professional steadycam!
