Whether you’re trying to film your weekend car chases without a shudder or just want super smooth video of you and your pals rolling through town, this dirt-cheap camera stabilizer turns your dashboard into a tripod.
One Dollar Store peanut sponge and scrap of high-grip rug padding combined with a few minutes of measuring and cutting is all it takes to craft a vibration dampening and stable camera mount. Check out the video above to see the build process (skip to the last 20 seconds or so to see the sponge-mount in action).
