Step 1: What you need

How on the picture ;)
I think you need to cite <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/steadycam/">Johnny Chung Lee's work</a>. This design is almost identical.<br/>
I agree: http://14dollarstabilizer.org/

The finished product looks too pretty for its purpose. I made one a while back using the same plans but with more industrial looking pipe and unions (no gold endcaps and non-taped pipes). I just painted mine black and it works perfectly. This is really a question of form over form, in other words, this is going to be under the camera, not in front of it.
Just a tip. It'd probably work a lot better if the handle was on a gimbal like the real deal. <br/><br/>See <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.webbpickersgill.com/stabilizer/">this guy's design</a>. (He even build the vest and the whole 9 yards! )<br/>
Very good instructable!
I saw this in make magazine before.
please please please learn better english before posting an instructable... a list to accompany pictures would be preferred for materials... and proper spelling of steadicam
Do you have a before/after steadiness video? I'd like to see what kind of a difference it makes.
