Ray at Vidvox pointed out this pretty great “guerrilla movie maker tool”, a homemade way to make your video more film-like by reducing it’s depth of field. Another project for summer maybe, to be filled alongside the DIY steadicam – ( or another steadicam design with less construction involved ), making a Track Dolly and making a Lens Hood for a Camcorder. And while on the DIY tip, is worth mentioning the old photographer trick of keeping a string tripod in your pocket to help stabilise a still camera ( a bolt that fits into your camera tripod hole, with string attached which u stand on and pull taut – presto less camera movement ). And I’m not going to bother, but the DIY LCD projector system is cute too.
