DIY Full Size 3 Axis Camera Gimbal for Canon 5D or large cameras

Hi, I'm a long time contributor to COW who has been away for a while. I recently began building a full size Carbon Fiber 3 Axis active stabilized camera rig similar looking to the MoVi but with off the shelf components from around the world. If you're interested in looking at my build log and engaging in the discussing come of to my new site, I just created an hour ago and check of the videos. http://www.jodagimbal.com

I began building this about a month ago and posted the entire process for others to follow in my footsteps and experience this amazing technology that will literatly change the way hand held camera work is approaced from corporate to hollywood.

Thanks Again! Dave Beaty

Hi Warren, in the true sense of DIY, it's determined by what components you use. In my version, I opted for some nice Carbon Fiber parts and 5208 180 motors. With everything tallied it's around $1600, but I think you could get it for less now. More hobby companies are offering CNC Carbon gimbal kits for less than $500. Boards are around $250. SmallHD monitor is around $500, Okii controller - $250, Joystick, $60..and so on.

Hi everyone, I took the time and compiled together a full page of references for you to read on if you are interested in assembling your own 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal, I decided to go with Came-7000 from Came-tv.com because their product is sturdy, their customer service is good, and I got the kit within 3 days. Even cinematographer Tom Antos feels this is the best within the price range (under $1k).

So if you plan to build your own gimbal, consider using this page as reference. http://www.mdifilm.com/2013/?p=1291

Enjoy!
