I recently build a Camera gimbal, tt's simple, effective, and really helps to get rid of most of the shakes and vibrations from the video.
In this instructable, I will briefly explain how I built my own DIY brushless camera gimbal, if you are still in doubt please refer to more detail and pictures on my blog post.
Check out this demo video:
The camera gimbal is very cheap to build:
- Frame material (plywood, screws, nuts, angle blankets etc) - <$10
- Gimbal Motor x 2 - $23
- Gimbal Controller - as low as $20
- Total $53
I used a slightly more expensive one in my project, but you can definately get some cheap ones for as low as $20.
And it's very light too, only 160gram net weight, perfect for traveling. I also plan to mount this on my helicopter and quadcopter.
Check out this video I filmed using this camera gimbal and my gopro.
So here is How I made it.
