Steadibrek

In the quest to add further bits to my miniDV camera I've been looking online at various hand-held camera stabilisers. That Steadicam Merlin looks great but I'm not going to be spending circa. £600 on one of those anytime soon. At the bottom end of the scale is the $14 Steadicam; essentially a weighted stick. The search for cheap camera stabilisation captures the imagination of geeky camera buffs everywhere so the web is awash with their various schemes and adventures.
There could be an intriguing wee project here involving some bits of plastic and skate bearings perhaps...

and i'm sure you're just the sort of man to take on this project. Looking forward to seeing the fruits - i've seen some early prototypes, and let me tell you folks,...it's looking pretty special!
