A DIY Camera Stabilizer with Beautifully Filmed Build Instructions

Youtube user 朗 岩本 made a DIY camera stabilizer, and filmed everything in a beautiful manner. The stabilizer is made for a Canon EOS 7D but can easily be adapted to other DSLRs. The author of the video says:

I have made a Camera Stabilizer which is able to use for taking videos with small digital camera (about 300g) to Digital SLR (about 1,500g).
All parts can be separated for better portability.
This version (v7.4) is specially designed to achieve to be light for using with heavy digital SLR.
Even it is Lightweight (525g) but, it has enough rigidity and designed for easier and faster setting.
It is enable to operate in one hand and carry up to 2,300g total by changing the combination of ballasts.

Canon EOS 7D & Magic Lantern RAW – Sample Footage

Vimeo user posted the first sample footage shot with an Canon EOS 7D and the Magic Lantern RAW hack. He writes:

As you know, the Canon 7D is now capable of shooting raw video thanks to Magic Lantern.
I’ve downloaded Pelican’s nightly build and install it on my Canon 7D. I did some quick tests in my garden with silent pics burst. For now, I didn’t get any pink frames. I can get 40-41 pictures (a little less than 2 seconds).
DNG are 1736 x 1156 pixels. Stunning quality compared to H.264…
But a little of moire (as usual with the 7D).
Congratulations to Magic Lantern !!! It’s totally amazing what they can do.
