$14 Steadycam

This is an oldy, but a goody. The first online tutorial I ever created was on creating your own low-cost camera stabilizer for only $14 (that's in 2001 dollars). It became a featured article in the premier issue of Make Magazine, posted on countless news/blog sites, and viewed well over a 1 million times. It has become a staple of the low-budget/student film-making community and is currently used in a number of high school and college production classes.

If you can't (or don't want to) make one, you can simply buy one. I currently sell them through littlegreatideas.com for $39.95. It includes some bells and whistles beyond the $14 tutorial version. If you like my projects and want to support me, buying one is currently one of the easiest ways to do that. Then again, I also won't turn down flat out donations. =o)

Aaron said...

I cant believe this is you. HAHAH about 4 years for my second year at i guess an era between highscool & uni, i had to make a media film. Me and my mates wanted to go as professional as possible but budgeted. I made your steady cam seeing the results as perfect for the job. I remember the time it took me and my dad working together, getting materials and putting it all together. Now i come across you with the wii remote projects. Such a genius. Keep this good work up. I am so bookmarked to you right now!

Eric Adler said...

Your stuff is awesome. I've known about your $14 steadycam for a while now, learned about the wii projects relatively recently, then just today realized that you're the same person doing both!

Anyway, I come with a question:
How large of a camera/how much weight would you trust a $14 steadycam with [assuming the bolt size and head were replaced with something rated to hold a heavier camera]?

Breitling must be one of the coolest watches in the world. Because you can call a helicopter to pick you up when activating the built-in radio transmitter. What a watch! This is why they are called Bentley Motors Emergency watches. Bentley Motors T is always proud to be the luxury watchmaker that produces "instruments for professionals". The Navitimer Watches Emergency watches are just one of such typical watches that feature strong professional style.


These Christian Shoes will add the right excitement and that little something extra to your feet to enable you to go that extra mile in life. The bundles of attitude that Christian Louboutin Pumps comes along with looks good and cute at the same time. This is certainly a wonderful combination. And not to mention, the right sleek look can be got by fitting your feet with the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin Boots , which is a certain enlightening factor. So, no more of Monday blues with these Christian Louboutin Sandals on your feet as every day will feel like a Sunday!


You can find Coach bags in floral prints and solids. When pleating is something you see in many Coach Gallery designs you will find pleating being done on a Coach Hamptons to keep up with fashion. A new line is coming out in distressed leather to go along with distressed denim which is popular currently. When Coach Legacy makes a purse or bag you know there is a great deal of patience involved.
