It seems there's no need to spend thousands on rigs and mounts for your 5D when you can go to Ikea, spend $7 on a cutting board, use some old pipe and suddenly you've got a DSLR shoulder mount! More after the break.
All credit to Cris Knight for building a quickie DSLR shoulder mount for his Canon 5D over the weekend from some old pipe and an Ikea cutting board. He thinks it's a great little starter rig, we're not inclined to disagree, although maybe there's a bit more to it. Like some more components and a very impressive workshop! If I had some of that machinery in my basement and his skill set then I might be thinking about earning some money as a plumber on the side!
