    Handycam Stabilizer Rig

    After years of filming with my handycan and trying to minimize all the shaking I finally made a support rig to help reduce the shaking and produce better footage. What do you think?

    I definitely will bring it with to camp. Hope to have a few other camera supports made by then too!

    Was able to get outside yesterday and do some filming with this and it worked great. So much easier to support my camera and with the top handle I am able to lower the camera for some very cool video angles. So far I am real happy with it! Hope to have my next camera tool made up in a day or two!

    I certainly is his design! Followed the specs almost exactly. Only I painted mine black and wrapped it in camo tape. Actually put in an extra accessory hole for an LED light in the future. Hope to have the light installed before the G2G!

    Does your HandyCam not have Image Stabilization built in?

    It does but with its small size it helps but still get shakey video alot of times when not using a tripod or support. This is working great!

    Made to be carried. My small handycam is so tiny that it is really hard to support. This is super simple and can actually use my arms at my side for support and can actually rest it on my chest for additional support. The videos with it are so much better then before. I will try to make a short youtube video showing it. Be sure to subscribe to my new youtube page. My old page is forever deleted. I will try to get it posted in a day or two.
