The Overhead Camera Rig is finished and we are one step closer to doing livestreams! This build took about 6 hours and cost $32 to make. I started out by researching DIY overhead camera rig designs, and seeing how they were built. I came across one design that I liked, but after building it, I realized that it wasn’t going to work for the set up I wanted.
So it was back to the drawing board, literally. I started sketching out my own rig designs until I came up with the one you see now. I designed the rig to be adjustable and work well with the specific zoom features of the camcorder. I’m very happy with how it turned out, especially since I’ve never worked with pvc pipe before.
At this point, I need to invest in a couple of clip on lamps, and an extension cable for the camcorder. Time to start hunting for some deals!
Till next time,
