or copy the link

Using some easy-to-get supplies, Ryan shows you how you can make your own DIY shoulder rig for under $20! And yes, we know this has been made plenty of times… But our build is about doing it as cheap, simple and effective as possible. We also chose to warp the pipe instead of cutting it so that it will fit perfectly to the body.

I got the Cowboy Studio Shoulder Support Rig for $25 and didn’t have to build anything.
(won’t let me add the links sorry)
I feel like I’m better at keeping the camera freehand (walking/running) than using it (except for panning and tilting)(much better for that 🙂 )
Am I doing it wrong? Are you suppose to pull pressure a certain way or just your best to keep it level?
(also tried using my tripod with extra weights on the bottom for a cheap steady cam)

my shoulder mount consists of me putting/mounting my camera onto my shoulder and holding it there.

A tripod has three legs (hence “tri”) and a a shoulder mount goes on your shoulder (hence shoulder). Generally you will use a tripod whenever possible, but shoulder mounts are very useful for moving shots that you cannot get on a tripod easily.

Stephen Fallon says:

Actually Ryan is using a Pentax (not sure which) in this video.

Stephen Fallon says:

They definitely do not. It may be custom but it isn’t a plastic DIY build.
