Garret Brown's original Steadicam® is an icon that revolutionized filmmaking. Being the first and the best, it naturally and justifiably commands a premium price. It is for this reason that homemade DIY Flying Camera Supports have been around since at least 1977, just one short year after Mr. Brown's invention.
With this tradition in mind, I present the two fundamental principles behind the steadycam and show you how to build your own Flying Camera Support.
