People choose different types of cameras for filmmaking, depending on their skills and needs: smartphones are ideal for beginners, action cameras are great for recording on-the-go, and DSLRs have made it possible for everyone to do film production on a professional level. But unwanted vibrations and shakes can make recorded footage look unsteady—which is where gimbal stabilizers come in handy.
As we wrote earlier, GoPro introduced their new Karma grip and made it available for purchase. While it really seems to do a marvelous job for stabilizing your videos, not everyone can afford it. And when you’re tight on budget, you can always get creative. In this tutorial, you will see step by step instructions for making your own 3-axis gimbal. And considering it’s DIY, the results it gives are fantastic.
