Rig It Up

Posted on by Shawn

Friends, viewers, random people that don’t know how they got onto this website: I have a confession to make. Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit shaky. Wobbly, jello-y, and downright jittery. Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. So, I decided it was time to get some stabilization…FOR MY CAMERA.

Oh man. I bet you didn’t see that one coming.

Up until now I’ve been using a craptastic monopod (not that I have anything against monopods! This particular one I own is just cheap. And also terrible) to add some semblance of stabilization to my DSLR shooting, but then I came across THIS:

It says BEST right in the title, so you know it has to be good. Possibly even…the best.

And now I own it:



It works great! Incredibly helpful, and a touch more professional than the rig you made out of PVC, wood, and black spray paint (DIY FTW!). Shout out to Caleb Pike at dslrvideoshooter.com for posting this a year ago. I feel so up to date now.

The rig is very flexible, the parts can all be used for other rigs, and I’m happy to announce that I’m over my case of the jitters.
