DIY Steadycam for iPhone (and Flip)

The guy in this video shows how to make a Do-It-Yourself steadycam for an iPhone in order to take smooth, jerk and wobbly free video with his phone.  I don’t have an iPhone, but I do have an UltraHD Flip — if I ever get it back from Cisco, but that’s another story — and it dawned on me that this could very easily be adapted for the flip, or for just about any of today’s micro-camcorders:

After I get my Flip back, I may have to try making one of these.  The only thing that really needs to change is the phone mount at the top, put a couple of adapters on the end of the vertical bar, reducing the thread down to a standard camera mount, and we’re in business!
