  • Ha! I got sent here from my channel, because I bought a similar (more heavy duty and 70 years old) studio stand. Love that you build yours by yourself. Really enjoyed watching.

  • Hey, You make amazing stuff! One thing you could improve is the echo when you are talking. Maybe build some sound deadening boards to improve the audio qualitiy? Cheers!

  • Hey Laura, vielen vielen Dank für das tolle Video das war mir eine große Inspiration für mein eigenes Stativ, das ist zwar dann doch etwas anders geworden aber Dein Video war ne super Motivation das überhaupt zu bauen! Ich hoffe ich werde irgendwann mal Dein wirklich hohes Niveau von Videos erreichen! Liebe Grüße Alex

  • Did you have any trouble with the tube collapsing from tightening the bolts I ended up having to use bushings. But works like a charm thanks for the inspiration.

  • Hey laura, great build and awesome video, can you tell me what is your main camera? Thanx

  • Love it! Tripods are wonderful, but cumbersome. What would adding a counterweight around the back - attached to the arm do? (idea being to negate the camera/arm weight)

  • Nice idea. In astronomy we use parallelogram mounts for binoculars, and they have an adjustable offset weight for stability, instead of relying on the friction of the nuts and bolts.

  • could do a little countrweight on the camera arm to balance the weight of the camera out , will make moving the camera one handed eazier using leather washers probably will improve the friction a little

  • hey Laura, just an idea. you might want to extend the arm beyond the center pole and add a counter weight. Change the self locking nuts to something with a handle. This way you get the same you have now but you can also use it as a Jib. This would enable you to make shots that look like a vertikal slider. This could be usefull for final showcase shots of things you have build.

  • Hey Laura, großartiges Video und danke für die Ispiration. ein kleiner Tip vom Zerspanungsmechaniker für das Gewindeschneiden: Wenn du in ein Grundloch Gewinde schneiden willst, kannst du dir viel Fummelei mit einem Grundlochgewindebohrer sparen, denn sie Spähne werden nach oben aus dem Loch befördert und verstopfen unten nicht. bei Hoffmann Tools oder Garant gibt es hochwertige Bohrer.

  • This is absolutely neat! The idea of a studio camera pedestal, but made in a more simple way out of scrap material. And the counterweight in the form of the power bank on the back! Such a perfect shop implement.

  • very nice i like it good job and thank you for sharing.

  • This looks like really great design for fast adjustments, I love it. I wonder if not locking wheels are bothering you when you use it? From my perspective it looked like the tripod tried to run away a little when you operated it. Also, if you'll want to cut some more time using it, I believe the handle fixing the arm might be replaced with a magnetic switch like the ones Andrew Klein made. However, it might be tricky to do as ISRU build (unless you have a bunch of magnets lying around), and it looks like the arm height adjustment won't be used too often.

  • It looks great and I hope it will fit your needs. I wonder, if this lengthy arm is prone to catching and amplifying vibrations? How do you feel about it?

  • If anyone is looking for something like this to buy, look for studio camera stands. It’s essentially this with a few more movement options (like you can usually slide horizontally along the boom arm). They’re not cheap though.

    Zach WigginZach Wiggin5 maanden geleden
  • Nice work A tip if you get any camera sway after hitting record is to get a shutter release (a wireless one is very useful). Just make sure that your camera is able to record and not just take a picture with the release

  • Doesn't the stand vibrate or even move slightly when doing something that causes vibration? Locking casters would fix that. It is a wonderful looking stand. The "trades" (builders, fixers, etc.) should never be thought of as a man's domain. Thanks for showing the world that women can do anything that a man can do...maybe better!

  • I would be great if you could show the tripod in action a bit more. It was very quick up and down but it would be nice to see how it can be used. For example, if the monitor can be attached somewhere else or if you can make other attachments for it. Great project though!
