Here's a great way to stop shaky videos and get that Hollywood edge on your films with a step by step guide. Yes this is on YouTube but I've tweaked it slightly. Measurements I will have in Inches and mm/cm because I'm from New Zealand.
Please Note this is my First Instructable 

Step 1: Materials

- 1in/25mm PVC
Lengths:
4 ~ 6in/154mm
4 ~ 4in/102mm
1 ~ 3 3/4in/95mm
1 ~ 1 1/2in/38mm
- 3 1in/25mm T Joints
- 6 1in/25mm Elbow Joints
- 1 3 in/80mm 1/4in/6mm thread Bolt
- 1in/25mm End Plug
- Spring
- Multiple washers depending on if your bolt if fully threaded (which mine isn't)
- 6mm ish Drill Bit
- Drill

Step 2: Drilling

Drill into Plug and bottom of a T Joint

Step 3: Construct Camera Mount

Place Bolt and Washer through the bottom of the T Joint, Flip over and slide on the Spring and Washers. I needed to put on a few Washers as the thread did not go all the way down. Screw down the nut until you  feel some tension.

Step 4: Put the Whole Thing Together

It's pretty easy to put together after that. Above where your camera will sit, I found that the measurements I was given made it so that I had to add a bit of extra pipe, this is most probably because the video where I got this from was American and the Joints are different.
Make sure you compress where pipe joins as to prevent it falling apart

Step 5: Enjoy

Enjoy your nice steady footage.
Other options are to paint it or where you hold it you could put BMX Grips.

This is a nice rig, It likes like it would be really easy to run around with. <br> <br>However you are missing one vital element. <br> <br>An example video! The best thing is to have a video showing the camera in movement both with and without the stabilizer.
Nice Cheap Rig! <br> <br>I set up a Rig with the Atomos Ninja-2 on the Nikon D4. <br> <br>From my blog: <br>Once set up all I have to do is start Live View (in video mode) and start the Ninja-2 recording. When I cycle the Live View button on the D4, the Ninja-2 starts recording when Live View is on and stops when I shut it off. Each time the Ninja-2 creates a new file for the next take. I turn on the Focus Peaking to ensure perfect focus and it stays on the whole time (does not reset when Live View is cycled). Perfection! <br> <br>Check out my rig <br><a href="http://vigorotaku.blogspot.com/2012/11/atomos-ninja-2-on-nikon-d4.html" rel="nofollow">here</a> <br> <br>Dan at Vigorotaku
Thanks your feedback means a lot being what seems like quite a switched on guy in terms of being Pro and all the followers and what not. I will work on getting a video up soon
Could you link to the American measurement/plans as well, please?
