Has anyone successfully built a steadicam for GoPro?
I'm trying to get some kind of stabilization to use with my GoPro this winter but I don't want to spend a lot of money. I've seen things on how to build a steadicam for GoPro but I can't tell how well they actually work. Have any of you made one that works well and if you have, what did you do?
Yes I have. It's called the steezycam. Dm me I can send you pics and parts list for it. Cost me 12 bucks or so to make. And it is damn steady. I'll take pics in am (gave to roommate after I went dslr)
Basically it is a threaded rod, with an aluminum plating on top for front left and right adjustments. Rod ran through a cross pvc piece with skate bearings heat pressed into them. Made a handle out of pvc with bearings inside. Bottom is a metal bracket with holes for mounting washers for weight. Looks like a very barebones glidecam.
