I have recently made some changes to my DIY Camera Crane. I got sick of the position of the monitor, so I fabricated a bracket to hold it on the pivot point.
I also painted the whole thing with flat black spray paint to make it look more professional. I chose flat black to minimize reflections that might cause imperfections in footage.
I found that my bucket of weights kept slipping off of the crane, go I bent the metal bracket to make it impossible for the weights to slip.
I am currently designing a Pan/Tilt mount for the camera. Let me know what you think in the comments.
