Wow, it's amazing how a simple product from the aisles of a home improvement store can be transformed into so many different things by so many different people. In Video world, this is actually becoming a quite popular little DIY stabilizer and feedback has been great about the stability of the tool. Here's a couple more rigs that are popping up.
Now i'm not always very clear about my DIY builds, so Marcus V Warner & Brian created their version of the CheesyCam DIY DSLR Cage with alot more detail on the parts list. I'm calling this the LP version because they really get thorough on the build and it's about 20 minutes or so. So if you can't get through understanding my video, check out Vimeo user Vitaphone's below.
I fly my Steadicam + Glidecam HD 4000 Hybrid rig quite a bit. I'm loading it up more and more with LED lighting, Shotgun Microphones, Zoom H4n, etc. I'm building it to follow someone around sorta 'Reality TV' style, and will still have decent lighting and audio. Although the Stabilizer and Vest are strong, i'm running out of space to mount things. I decided it's time to go with a DSLR cage to hold more accessories. I'll let you know how that idea goes, but this is what i'm looking at. Click Here for information on the DSLR Cage shown.
