Video: You can make a simple stabiliser for lightweight cameras out of a variety of cheap materials, but none of those solutions are quite as satisfying as crafting a unique rig out of LEGO. This video from Product Tank shows how to make a cool stabiliser with some spare plastic bricks. First, the practical bits: A LEGO rig will obviously be more fragile than other solutions, and the purpose here is really to learn how the stabiliser works. As Product Tank demonstrates, making a good camera stabiliser really comes down to finding precise balance between the top mount where the camera will go and the weight at the bottom of the rig, and making a smooth multi-axis pivot point that will connect to your handle. Small cameras like GoPro or even a smartphone allow for lightweight construction materials, and LEGO have the added benefit of being perfect for rapid trial-and-error prototyping. Watch the video for a full understanding of how it works and then take a shot at making your own.

Cognitive bias occurs when we make subjective assumptions about people or situations based on our own perception of reality.
