I don't know if many people take video of birds like I do occasionally, but . . .
Steadicam systems cost anywhere from $500 to $5000. I built this one for $32 and it took me about an hour. It works like a champ and it has an outrigger for low tracking shots and a separate bracket for a shotgun mic just like the high end units.
I based it on this unit but made a couple of improvements. I did not bend the fender washers. I left them flat and stuck felt furniture sliding pads to them. And I used 2 six in L brackets instead of bending and drilling an aluminum bar like he did. Also - a slightly different attachment for the weight.
