Foodtree video from my N900 at DCV11 is shakey - need a portable steadicam

Submitted by Roland on Fri, 2010-07-23 07:29

I love taking taking videos and streaming them real-time from my N900  like the following one from DemoCamp Vancouver 11 of awesome Vancouver food provenance startup foodtree. But they are too shakey. Anybody got any ideas for a cheap and cheerful and portable steadicam?



This might work: tie a long string to your camera, put the other end on the floor, step on the end of the string, and pull the camera upwards until the string is taut.  If you hold it there (and don't slip or tire), the camera should stay in one place.

the string trick might work, forgot about that one as well!
