Build a DIY digital SLR (DSLR) camera cage for smooth and steady video

A DSLR cage from a professional photographer supply store will cost at least a few hundred dollars, but you can build one yourself for around 50 bucks. This tutorial shows you how to use a few pipes, metal struts and a few pieces of hardware and tools to make your own digital SLR cage for shooting steady videos on your digital camera.

Very usefull

Hey there -
Great design - clear instructions!
Thanks - but - can you give us a place to buy the "channel connectors and the cheese plates". The rest seem to be available at Home Depot.

Great DIY, thanks! Could you please include a full materials list? I had some trouble trying to match the materials with the ones I found at Home Depot.
