DIY DSLR PVC Shoulder Rig

The folks at the Slanted Lens decided to Get a bit DIYish this weekend and came up with a PVC DIY shoulder rig.

It’s a bit different from the designs they are floating around the web and the entire build is about 10$. Basically it’s a bunch of PVC parts, a 1/4-20 screw and some optional electrical tape. It looks pretty nice, thought the angle on the shoulder looks a bit weird.

Make sure to watch that bit at the end where Lars talks about how he holds the rig. A pretty interesting solution to not having a follow focus rail.

    Here in Spain is hard to find a 1/4″ screw that long (besides we use the metrical system). If anyone knows a store that makes international shipping I’d appreciate it.

    Bu pvc pipe denilen şeyi Türkiye’de nasıl bulabiliriz? Aydın’da yaşıyorum ama bulamadım. Daha incesi olan içinde bir katman metal olanından aldım başka bir projede. O da olmadı. Tam olarak ismi ne ve kim satıyor bu boruları acaba?

    İç Çapı 25mm PVC TE Boru Barçası şeklinde geçiyor. Hepsini online alacağım bakalım kargo fiyatı ne kadar olacak :D Belki bulamayanlar vardır diye Türk bir arkadaşımın yazısının altına yazdım. Umarım kızmamışsındır.
