ALSO: I am NOT responsible for dropped or broken cameras as a result of using this rig. This Instructable is merely a guide to building a Snorricam, and should be adapted for your particular setup. I suggest that if you build this rig, you test it with more weight than you'll be using before putting your precious camera on it.
For an adaptation on my design, check out HipHopSuperman's snorricam
Heres a video of me and the Snorricam in action.
And Heres a "behind the scenes" video of the setup we used for the above video.
Lastly, about 40 seconds into the video below, You can see the snorricam in action in our submission to the 48 hour film project in Portland, OR.
