$15 DIY camera stabilizer project...


I love DIY projects and this one is both very useful and VERY inexpensive... and I NEVER would have thought to use a monopod this way.

My friend Mark (A DSLR video zealot) turned me onto a DSLR video site called "CheesyCam" and though it's video based site (and you aren't), this is still a site you will want to bookmark as it's full of great tips, techniques, reviews, and DIY projects that will hold the interest of all us "still" photographers.

This project shows you how to turn a traditional monopod into a camera stabilizer.

Below is a video about this DIY project that you will want to watch and here is the link back to the original post that contains all the information and additional still images that will help you make your own.

Very cool, simple idea, thanks for sharing. I've seen another way that people do it by having a strap that you stand on to help keep the camera steady, but this looks easier to use.
