I just finished my glidecam, I got inspired of that scottish guy http://diycamera.com/stabiliser/index.html because I found out that I had a similar flashlight to build the gimbal of. I made a couple of test shots to see if it worked and it was pretty decent, alot can be improved... Gonna bring it on a ski trip the 16th so hopefully I've figured out how it works by then.
Indeed it is, but it gets easier after you've used it a couple of time (at least mine did) I have a whole bunch of footage with summerskiing I'm making a edit of, but I need to get my new laptop to finish it so it'll take a while before it gets posted.
BUT I can say that the shots exeeded my expectations and worked really well, not as good as the real deal but much better than without the rig.
