There are so many things in our household that we could use for DIY projects. Some of them we use every single day for their primary purpose, but they can easily become our best friends when taking photos or shooting videos. If you’re on a budget or just need some quick and simple DIY solutions, check out this video from Chadwin Smith. He shares ten household items that you can use for your filmmaking and photo projects, and we all have them at home.
The recently announced Edelkrone JibONE looks like a fantastic bit of kit. It’s not terribly unreasonably priced at $999 for what it offers, but once you add the motorised head and other doohickies, it can quickly run into several thousand. Filmmaker and YouTuber Chadwin Smith decided to have a go at making his own version of the JibONE.
The video’s called I built my own Edelkrone JibONE for free! and, well, it sort of is, but not really. The setup uses a motorised camera gimbal, so if you don’t already own one of those, then it’s not free. But it’s an interesting option for those who already have the kit shown in the video, but don’t want to go to the expense of the JibONE.
