Built to hold a DSLR. Was trying to do this as cheap as I possibly could and it came out to around 40 dollars. The sunpack pivot mount is great, and can be picked up for about 20 bucks, its nice for those low shots. Also you can see I did attach a tripod to it and it worked very well. Like I said I was going for cheap, and it honestly could use a little more weight on it, especially shooting with a camera as light as an SLR but a larger camera would still work fine. Going to get some longer PVC when the summer time comes to do some bigger shots with it. Going to stick with 6 ft for winter though.
