Greetings FishyComics:


What is your first name? rather than call you fishyComics

As I mentioned in the YouTube video, the demo of the steadyCam is excellent.

Keep up the good work.


I would like to build one for myself, what is the length of the alunium metal?

What is the size of the piece at bottom that holds the washers?

Does Ace808 sell these steadycams on a Website?

It would be great to have a list of detailed instructions, size, quantity, etc.

Regards Robert

thank you he hashis own thread here it will be pass page one.

a steadicam a steadycam or a stabilizer kit can be made.

this one you see is a not his knock off in the main first post.

this is his knock off no two will come out exact there will always be the bend, ever trying to get it exact, if done by hand, you must have it ran through a machine.

the measurement for this can be goingto your local hardware purchase a 3 foot length of aluminum, and do not cut off any excess till the bottom part has to be made. the cost of aluminum will vary from location 6.00-9.00 usc

24-28 inchs is the length .

I had taken the time to view a few others and came up with my own and used 16 inchs of metal will it work LOL not sure .

these I have sitting around

Nice job! Seems to work well.

Your design is more align to the one here:
http://www.hv20.com/showthread.php?t=8010

Seems the big difference with Ace's is the gimble.

not a pro ...........

thanks the designs are just of the online, I just modified to make a smaller compacted one of my own added some touchs.

Gimble (tripods found) will work but are limited to movement from a store, if Modified or not.

I am sure just holding a tripod will do just fine. andlearning to take it slow a lot of paitience will make anything work, mine is not a perfect working model just having some fun will get it workingone day. looking for a rear hatch pvot and ball.

Hey Robert,

Fishy has made these how-to-vids and added some things specifically for his camera. I do have complete instructions on CD! Limited quantities for the gimbal material though. Some video on there too. I don't make these and like Fishy shows, this is not that hard to make yourself. Your can get the materials with alittle research but modification, assembly and manupilation are done for your in the instruction CD! CD + Gimbal + Some Free stuff @ $25 + SH...A bargin!


Thanks for your interest.

Hey Fishy...Try this. I did and still limited allowable movement but may work for your small compact one. I tried this early on with a coupler purchased at OSH. Looks simular other attempts but not enough movement. Although smooth for panning shots. This might be what your looking for.

Greetings:


Thanks everyone for the links.


I just finished building my own SteadiCam.

Just spent $14.00 Canadian, hey that is oil money.

I have to find a better table top tripod seems the one I have the ball head

is very rigid, so my Action HD doesn't seem to balance well.

Again thanks everyone for the links, very helpful.

Regards Robert
