hammer time

Dude

I have to remember this trick...

Cheap, portable, disgustingly simple DIY image stabilizer for any camera

Basically, you have a 1/4" bolt that fits the tripod mount for the camera, tied to some string which is tied to a washer. The string is as long as the distance from your eyes to the floor. You screw in the bolt, step on the washer, and the tension of the string eliminates camera shake. Brilliant.
