    So there’s two key elements to a cable cam. The rope/cable the camera runs on and the unit holding the camera. Our first choice of cable or rope was decided for us. Coming from a climbing background we had plenty of rope and kit to get it reasonably tense so we decided on 10mm semi static rope as our ‘cable’. The major issue for us was the design and build of the unit. I had seen a really good version on the web so decided to pretty much copy it.

    The video gives you a little insight into how we made the cable cam and the end results. It was all filmed on The Beast in the Peak District on a Panasonic GH1. It was rather overcast on the day but we did the best we could.

    We've written up some instructions on how to make your own DIY cable cam - maiamedia.co.uk/2011/03/how-to-make-your-own-diy-cable-cam/
