      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. * 2009 Telly Award winner - http://videopia.org

        Okay, saw and liked Johnny Chung Lee's Poor Man's Steadycam ( http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/steadycam/ ) and was going to make one when I looked at my barely used monopod. All it needed was a weight and a handle. I used wrist weights and PVC for the handle, this way I can remove the weights and handle when I want to use it as a monopod. This is one of my first times trying this setup. I'm no Steadicam operator by a LONG shot, but even for a rank beginner this is better than my hand held stuff. I'll get better when I learn the Grocho Marx/Steadycam walk.
