Steady Your Camera With This PVC Mount

When breathing like a sniper can’t get you a steady enough shot, you need to call in the big guns — that is, external camera equipment. Instead of spending an arm and a leg, you can build your own camera stabiliser out of PVC pipe on the cheap.

You should be able to find all the necessary parts at your local hardware store, though there are a lot of them — mainly small PVC joints and thin strips of PVC pipe. But, with a few grip covers and a coat of paint, you’ll not only have a sturdy camera mount, but also something that doesn’t look too shabby either. Hit the link for the full build guide, or check out the video above to see more.
