DIY GoPro rig, made mostly with L-brackets, ballheads and friction arms:

Pretty dec for something made for "free" (had all the parts already). I'm thinking it might actually be good for something with a little more weight than a gopro - like a mirrorless or something, but I don't have anything to try it with.

I love a good "Bits box" assembly. I think some caution might to in order if you use anything bigger than a GoPro though.

Yeah they're all ebay parts from China too - so I don't put much faith in them for anything but light work. You really have to crank the friction arms with a lot of force to get them to stay straight.

Bodging together a jib from stuff mostly in the garage, has cost about $15 so far.

IMAGE: http://iforce.co.nz/i/255n0bw2.axi.jpg

Presumably because of the compression/downscalin​g/upscaling that occurs before the final image, for video I cant tell any difference between my 18-55 kit lense set to 35mm, or my Samyang 35mm F1.4.

Even if I pixel peeped I'm not sure if I could tell the difference, so it's certainly not going to make any noticable difference to the casual observer after upload to Youtube.

Seeing how it's near impossible to pull focus or have narrow DOF nicely while on the end of a crane, kit lense wins for this application.

Also being significantly lighter on the long side of the pivot point means a lot less counter weight required, which in turns makes the whole thing lighter over all and practical to carry by myself.

Have got a field monitor on the way to make it a bit easier to operate from the far end, although the flippy 600D screen certainly makes things easier. Shotgun mic not pictured, just a cheap one but audio quality seems plenty good for intended application.

I've got a netbook + Blue yeti mic for placing closer to the source if needing some better quality audio to synch up later.

I'm filming a race day this coming week, and the aftemath (big party etc) So it should be fun, first decently big even that I'll have filmed.
Bit of a learning curve, not looking forward to the editing though haha.

I just finished up my rig. Made from Jag35 and Hondo Garage parts. It has a Blackmagic Hyperdeck and Tascam DR-07 MkII for video and audio recording. A smallHD DP 4 EVF provides the viewfinder. I am using a Panasonic TM-700 on it but it was built to hold my 7D. As soon as I get the process of shooting video with the 7D recording out of the hdmi port I'll start using it and my better glass.

I might as well whore this setup in here too, since i did record a bit of video with it. here's a car-to-car rig i cobbled together during a big meet up we had down here in springfield, its a locking magic arm, a remote shutter trigger, and my 5d2:

Hmmm, better slap a NSFW label on that guy soon ;)

It's a pretty simple rig, actually. My shoulder rig's the killer one that took awhile to bring it up to the comfort level I've got it at now! More pics soon.

Simple yes, but a proper video rig, and not cheap, and that makes it porn! :)

I printed a new mic bracket. I had blue filament in the printer so its blue. I'll probably print another one next time I'm using black.
