Intro: Body Strap
Safe body strap for VCR, so that you are able to film your hands.
Works best if your camera has a LCD screen.
Can also be used with picture camera.
Great for filming your hands while cooking or for making instructables videos.
List of materials
A piece of wood approx. 15cm X 10cm (6" X4")
A 1/4" camera screw
6 wood screws
A belt or a nylon strap.
Step 1: Mount the Hardware
Remove the middle part.
Drill hole in metal, so that the 1/4" camera bolt can be inserted.
Add some washers and padding if necessary.
Fix the hardware on the plank.
Step 2: Strap
Measure your waist, and find a suitable nylon strap.
Use one or 2 belts if necessary, depending on your waistline.
Step 3: Screw the Camera
Screw the VCR or camera firmly to the contraption.
I use a piece of leather to protect the bottom of the camera, and some washers.
Step 4: Strap Yourself
Strap yourself, as high as possible, like under the armpits.
Make sure the camera is strapped safely to the wood, then slip it in your belt.
For extra safety, if your VCR has a strap, wear it over your neck.
