How to Build a Homemade Steady Cam Camera Mount

If a commercial steady cam system is not within your budget, but you want that same steady cam look, you can build one yourself. With some PVC pipe, a few household items and a little elbow grease, you can build your own cheap and easy rig.

Things You'll Need

1/2-inch schedule 40 PVC pipe, 10-foot length
6 Tee joints
4 elbow joints, 90 degree angle
2 elbow joints, 45 degree angle
Tape measure
Marker
PVC pipe cutter
PVC glue
Power drill
1/4-inch drill bit
1 crown bolt, 2 inches long, 1/4-inch by 20 thread-per-inch count
1 fender washer, 1/4-inch by 1 1/4-inch diameter
1 flat washer, 1/4-inch
2 bicycle handle bar grips
Black spray paint


Step 1
Cut the PVC pipe to multiple sections. Cut eight 1.25-inch lengths, two 12-inch lengths, two 5.5-inch lengths, two 3.5-inch lengths, one 8-inch length and one 2-inch length.

Step 2
Dry fit one 1.25-inch length PVC section into the center opening in two of the tee joints. Connect the center openings of two of the remaining four tee joints to the other end of the 1.25-inch PVC sections. Once complete, the combined section will resemble the capital letter "H." Once you are satisfied with the fit of each piece, disassemble the pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly. When completed, you should have two "H"-shaped pieces.

Step 3
Place the remaining two tee joints on your work surface with the center openings facing toward you. Insert a 1.25-inch length of pipe in between the two tee joints and press the tee joints together so you have what looks like a straight pipe with the two center openings still facing you. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.


Step 4
Connect the center openings of assembly you made in step 3 to the end of one of the "H"-shaped pieces using two 1.25-inch lengths of pipe. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly. Once completed, you should have a square-shaped assembly with two vertical openings, an opening facing left and an opening facing right.

Step 5
Connect two 90 degree angle elbow joints together using one 1.25-inch length of pipe to form a "C"-shaped assembly. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.

Step 6
Connect the remaining two 90 degree angle elbow joints to the two 5.5-inch lengths of pipe. Once assembled, these pieces should resemble two simple smoking pipes. These will serve as the handles for the rod support. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble dry fit the pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.

Step 7
Connect the two 12-inch lengths of pipe into the vertical openings in the square-shaped assembly. Connect the other ends of the 12-inch lengths of pipe to two of the openings in the remaining "H"-shaped assembly. These will serve as the main rods for the rod support. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.

Step 8
Connect the two 3.5-inch lengths of pipe to the openings in the "C"-shaped assembly. Once assembled, the "C"-shaped assembly will resemble a capital "U". Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.

Step 9
Connect the 8-inch length of pipe to the left opening in the square-shaped assembly. Connect the 2-inch length of pipe to the right opening on the other side of the square shaped assembly. These are the "arms" where you will connect the handles. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly.

Step 10
Connect the handle assemblies to the 8-inch length and 2-inch length of pipe so they are perpendicular to the main rod support assembly. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. Press the pieces down on your flat work surface before the glue dries to ensure that they are aligned properly. For a proper 90 degree angle for the handles, use the edge of a table or counter.

Step 11
Connect the two 45 degree angle elbow joints to the rear "H"-shaped assembly using the two remaining 1.25-inch lengths of pipe. Angle the joints so the openings are pointed downward. Connect the "U"-shaped assembly to the remaining openings on the elbow joints. Once you have confirmed a proper fit, disassemble the dry fit pieces and glue them together. The main rail mount is now assembled. Allow the glue to dry completely before drilling.

Step 12
Attach the 1/4-inch drill bit to your power drill. Drill a camera mounting hole through the top of the front-most section of the square-shaped assembly. It is the same section where the handle bars are connected to the main assembly. Drill the hole completely through the pipe at the seam between the two tee joints. This is where you will be inserting the bolt to secure the camera to the mount.

Step 13
Paint the entire assembly and allow it to dry completely.

Step 14
Place the bicycle handle bar grips onto the vertical PVC pipe grip sections. Use a water-based lubricant if the handle bar grips do not smoothly connect to the PVC pipe grip sections.

Step 15
Place the flat washer on the crown bolt and insert it through both sides of the hole you drilled in the front of the mount. Place the fender washer on the top end of the bolt that is protruding through the pipe. Insert the threaded end of the bolt into the tripod mounting base on your camera and hand-tighten it to secure your camera to the mount. Do not use any tools to tighten the bolt as over-tightening may damage both the mount and your camera.

Tips:
1. Foam PVC pipe insulation tubes work well for shoulder padding. They can be secured to the pipes with a little bit of duct tape.
2. Add ankle weights to the back of the mount to counter-balance the camera for increased stability.
