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 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.
