So I think most people know about the poor mans steadicam. Now some of the parts are harder to find in the uk so there is the £9.50 steadicam. I have yet to try this out and was open to suggestions about how to best go about a nice cheap steadicam solution! I have been using a closed tripod for a while now but it would be nice to have a dedicated steadicam part that I can carry around with the tripod. Also if anyone has had any experience with homemade jibs / cranes or anything else feel free to share in this DIY movie equipment thread!
