Steady Cam Build
Steady cam made out of 3/8" steel pipes with a pivoting tripod head and noise-free mic holder.
Decapitated a thrift store tripod and drilled 1/4" hole.
Drilled a 1/4" hole with screw threads into the endpiece of the pipe at my friend's machine shop.
Connected the two with a 1/4" machine screw. Epoxy for stability.
Small tin can with both ends removed -->screws poking out hold the rubber bands --> rubber bands hold the mic.
