“What do you think of these people that are making steadicams from galvinized pipes or PVC. Would they work as good as an expensive one, or the monopod idea that Earl talked about?”
Those home made steady cams work on two principals… Weight and inertia on the one hand, and balance on the other hand. It really is that simple.
I think they should use their tripod, and not waste time, money, energy, and space on a clunky device that has to be removed to put the camera back on a tripod at some point, anyways….. but that is just me.
