How to Steady your shots with a homemade fig rig

This video tutorial is going to show you how to steady your shots with a homemade fig rig. The camera is mounted right in the middle of the top bar and it uses the iron as the balancing mechanism. The official fig rig is about $300. But, the one shown in the video will cost you around $10. Cut a PVC pipe about 2 feet in length and glue on two T joints on either end parallel to each other. Now fix the two feet into the T joints as shown in the video. The larger the camera, the longer will be the base. For handle grips, put two pieces of PVC pipes over the T joints and put bicycle grips over them. Follow the video for the rest of the instructions.
