The Poor Man's Steadycam


The Poor Man's SteadycamJohnny Chung Lee is a Ph.D. Graduate Student in Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon Univerisity, but most people know him as the guy who designed the $14 Steadycam.

He'll show you how you can build your own, or for $39.95, you can buy one pre-assembled. This is a invaluable tool to the student filmmaker. Professional units cost upwards of $1500. Most of us are blessed to use a camera that costs that much.

If you aren't convinced, just view his demo videos.
