This extremely cheap and portable camera stabilizer is a great way to stabilize your photos without resorting to lugging around a tripod.
All you need for the ultra-portable hack is a large washer, some nylon string, and a properly sized bolt. It’s no substitute for a well-machined and weighted tripod but for simple setups where you just need a little extra stability without hauling heavy gear it’s pretty awesome.
Check out the above video to see the entire build process plus some video of the stabilizer in action. Have a favorite, and preferably cheap, camera hack? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
