Carrying around heavy equipment all day can really take the fun out of being a photographer. Sure, there’s good quality, lightweight gear on the market, but such pieces typically make one’s wallet a whole lot lighter, too. That’s why the chief product designer behind ProductTank took it upon himself to whip up this awesome, lightweight, and inexpensive stabilizer that’s perfectly suited to keep you and your GoPro shooting all day long.
Okay, it’s time to raid your kid’s Lego collection if you don’t have an assortment of your own. Another cool thing about this build is that it doesn’t require any tools, just the Legos, some elastic bands, tape, and a sheet of paper. It’s hard to get any more simple than that. Take a look at the quick video, to see how it’s all done.
If you wanted to class the stabilizer up a little bit, there are few things that come to mind, starting with sourcing Legos that are all the same color and using matching paper to use as shims. There are also a lot of different types of elastic you could experiment with if you found it aesthetically necessary.
