DIY Steadicam

This a cheap alternative for shooting motion video. Easy to build, difficult to balance and very tricky to use. This is modeled on the Merlin Steadicam. I mostly copied the design developed by gmix604 on youtube here: youtube.com/user/gmix604?feature=watch. I have to wonder if he worked at Home Depot because I never would have found the parts if he hadn't located them. I tried several techniques to reduce the roll by balancing the tilt at the bottom. It appears that too much weight at the bottom can be a problem.
