DIY steady cam for iPhone

(Above is shot and painted using iPhone and the SketchBook application)

I’m sorry, I’ve been looking at pictures all day long and suddenly I felt I wanted to do something different – looking around and found much foam board / core that I could use to make something. Now, my iPhone 4 arrived a couple of days ago and I realized that I shake way to much when filming – I need to concentrate hard to get anything stable. So I made myself a stabilizer, steady cam or whatever out of foam core. Now, you could use corrugated paper (wellpapp) if you don’t currently have any foam core thingi at home.

Movie is filmed entirely on the iPhone 4 – and edited and uploaded using iMovie. Music by my sister Kerstin Karlsson. Get it here if you like. :)

    hi Carl.
    I was plying with my new iphone on weekend as well and…. do yourself a favor and get a real camera if you want to shoot videos. I got sanyo xacti HD 2000 with CMOS sensor (!) and I love is almost as much as I love my sigmas. it is cheap and takes 10x better videos then iphone.
    I have a sample video here:
    and it has square bokeh!! :-)

  2. hehe, the thing with iPhone4 is that it’s with me at all times! And that’s why I really want it to work for me. Sure, a better cam is what I SHOULD use. I’m actually waiting for the Red Scarlet to be released, which never happens. Been waiting for ever!! ( )
