This is a quick tutorial I wanted to share with you guys.
This is a very easy and cheap tutorial that can be done with some basic tools.
You can use it as in the first part and get a more professional look by finishing it with a carbonfiber Di-Noc foil and some black paint if you want to...
If you'r looking to make one, you can simply adjust some stuff to your own preferences, this is how it worked out best for me.
It's a compact lightweight frame that I can take everywhere in my backpack to make more stable footage and I can add my LED light on it to make some footage at parties or in the dark.

The picture tutorial was made after I've finished the structure...so you'll see some holes where already drilled but it should be quite easy to follow my steps.

Step 1: This is what we will make

nice project
Nice work. Wish I had access to a break that produced such precise radii. <br> <br>Shouldn't you add some weight at some distance below the camera? That would really increase the stabilization effects.
jbejm: Since you see fit to be rude, I'll try to be helpful: What is truly dumb is to post your derogatory statement (below) and not even know how to spell the word &quot;dumb.&quot;
Quite similar to the one I saw on The Frugal Film Maker a couple of weeks ago.
Nice job, keep doing.
I like the design, however, I would remove the word &quot;Stabilizer&quot; from the title as it doesn't perform this function. <br> <br>Very nice Tutorial.
Actually it does, although somewhat indirectly. Having hold points farther away like this makes the camera easier to stabilize.
Clever design. I did something functionally similar, using two strips of 1/4&quot; aluminum and a pair of 3/4&quot; birch dowels for the handgrips, but I like how yours folds.
very nice project
A very useful build. Great stuff.
