Build a DIY Camera Stabilizer from PVC Pipe

If you’re looking for a way to take steadier video using your video-enabled DSLR or camcorder, this cheap DIY stabilizer shoulder mounts your camera for jitter-free video.

All you’ll need for the project is some PVC piping and connectors, some nuts and thumb screws for the camera mount, and (optionally) some black paint, tape, and foam to make the build more comfortable and professional looking. Watch the video above to see the build in action and then hit up the link below for a detailed build guide.
