    Default Homemade Camera & FX Gear

    Just a link I found with links to plans and instructions for some interesting DIY gear. Some useful, some old and funny, some ideas?:

    • Poor Man's Lamp Dimmer (George Odell's great little light dimmer project)
    • Hands Free Camera Mount, PVC circular mount, camera jib arm,etc - various projects
    • Camcorder Shoulder Support (gain shoulder-mount stability for your handheld camcorder - by Marv Frankel)
    • Slide Lightbox (build a slide lightbox)
    • Tally Light Indicator
    • Mountain Bike Helmit Mount (for camera)
    • Bike Camera Mount (mounts to actual bike)
    • XL1 Stabilizer (build a stabilizer rig for your Canon XL1 camera)
    • Stabilizer (build a stabilizer rig for your DV camera)
    • Glidecam (yet another DIY stabilizer)
    • $14 Steadicam
    • Camera Dolly v2 (another variation)
    • Barndoors (build barn-doors for a worklight)
    • Chinese Lantern (George Odell's Chinese Lantern, great for soft lighting)

    One of the hassles with old links. Domain expired six days ago (7/20/08) so no telling. I could have sworn the link worked a few days ago though as I remember seeing it. May be back soon. I'll start another thread specifically on making making barn doors in a few minutes.

    Okay, now that I posted the new thread the DIY barndoor site is back up.
