When watching YouTube videos, there are two things that usually make the bad stand out from the good. These are poor audio and a shaky camera. The first can be easily remedied by using an external microphone with your camera. The latter isn’t always so easy. Sure, setting up a tripod is good if you aren’t going to be moving the camera much. However, if you’re doing shots that require you to move around, you’re going to need a steady cam. If you don’t have the money to buy an expensive one, you can always go the DIY route.
Building a steady cam rig isn’t always an expensive or laborious task. This Instructables guide shows you how to construct a small, but effective one from PVC pipe and a few other bits. You’re probably only looking at around $20-$30 tops with something like this. They’ve even added in a spot for your external mic, to improve your audio quality as well.
