Wandering through the net I came across several good DIY projects. One is for a Steady cam. Simple and easy to build for under $15.00, this steadycamera support will give you smooth moves. You will find instructions and a parts list on the site. Build away, and if you don't have the tools - he will build you one!
Here is a good site showing how to build a camera dolly. Some skateboard wheels, angle iron, wood and screws and you can have a smooth ride for your camcorder!
And jet another site describes how to build a "poor mans Jib" or $60.00! Flowing crane movements can be yours for a little time in the garage and a few parts.
And if you want to take your camera under water, here is a site showing you how to build a camera housing. But be careful, water and cameras do not mix!
So do away with those fall & winter blues and give yourself a new toy to play with! Have fun and go shoot something!
