Introduction: Simple Panoramic Rig
Below are directions for a simple rig for panoramic video. It was built with free pallet wood and the temporary use of my mountain bike rim. The project took about 5 minutes to put it together.
Step 1: Tools/Materials
- Measuring tape
- Bicycle Rim/Tire (26” used for this project)
- Wood – I used pallets
- 16” x 3.5”
- 38” x 5.5”
- 32” x 4” (x2)
Find any wood. I used pallets from a previous project. Cut to approximate lengths shown above.
Drill hole in small board to match axle diameter. Mount tire to board – use nut from bike.
Drill a clearance hole in the center support.
Attach small board to center support.
Add stabilization legs.
Place camcorder/camera on edge of wheel.
Spin and record. See link for video.
