One aspect of professionally shot video that amateurs most frequently want to emulate is how smooth the footage is. Shoot your own jitter-free video with this DIY stabiliser
If the contraption here looks a little familiar to you, you’re not imagining things. It’s the fifth version of homemade steadicams built by YB2Normal, who has been tinkering away with DIY stabilisers for several years now. We shared one of the first incarnations with you earlier this year.
His newest version requires the most machining and fine detail work out of any of his previous versions, so if you’re put off by that you might want to check out this simple design we shared with you, courtesy of Make Magazine.
