Some sample test footage I shot using my Panasonic Lumix GH2 and my new Frugal Floater DIY Steadicam by Scott Eggleston. I built this stabilizer in about 3 total hours (including some improvisations) using instructions by Scott on http://www.youtube.com/user/thefrugal... -- You should totally go check him out!

Had fun tonight tweaking my steadicam. This thing is pretty incredible, and I'm already working out changes for it. #1, DSLR+metal quick release means more weight, so it takes a lot of weight to balance it. Already had to glue one of the plugs into its corresponding 45-degree elbow because the weights pulled the lower arm right off. About lost my mind until I figured out how to use a nail to help tighten the nut that holds it onto the slide plate (not so difficult until you glue the elbow on it!). #2, Because of all the weight, the elbows want to twist out of whack a lot, so I am going to incorporate a system of R-clips (cotter clips) that will hold the joints together, still allowing me to disassemble it rather easily. #3, I want to tweak the handle assembly to include a separate section to twist the gimbal to pan the camera slowly. Might be as easy as gluing a washer onto the bottom of the traxxas joint. Dunno until I get a closer look at it.
