Sorry that many of my images are blurry, I was really snapping pictures quickly while doing the project and I wasn't paying too much attention.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Drill and drill press
- Framing square
- Tape measure
- 1 meter long aluminum picket. Normally used as part of an outdoor deck railing.
- 3 pieces of light wood of various sizes. I took apart a box that used to contain 6 bottles of wine.
- Several different nuts, bolts, washers and L-Brackets.
- One large L-Bracket to hold the camera.
- Straps or "webbing"
- A clip for closing the belt portion
- Rubber washer for protecting the camera from getting scratched
- A bolt of the right size to hold your camera in place
- Needle and thread
Step 2: Start Cutting
First cut the aluminum rail into two parts (one of 90cm, the other of 10cm). Drill a hole through one end of your rail and through the center of your half circle. Fix in place using your nuts, bolts and washers.
Step 3: Start Drilling
Step 4: Put the First Peices of Wood Together
Step 5: Repeat These Steps for the Second Pivot Point
Step 6: Attach the Straps
Using your drill and jigsaw, drill slots for the straps to loop through. Use some sewing skills to attach it properly.
Step 7: Set Up the Camera Mount
Step 8: Enjoy!
I decided against having a third pivot point (elbow) for the sake of keeping my rig light and simple. All in all, I am very happy with the results. My snorricam is very adjustable, but once you have things set for your size and needs, you wont mess with the setting too much.
By the way, I just use a simple point and shoot camera for my videos so the whole thing is very light. If you have any questions, comments or suggesting, please leave a comment below!
