CMTites are a pretty resourceful bunch in general I think, so I thought you might raise a smile at my efforts at creating a solution to a CMT problem.
My wife and I enjoy forest walks during which we use our cameras to record video footage of anything interesting we see, for future use in video films for friends and family...my CMT has recently been getting in the way of both these things so...time for a bit of resourcefulness.
We found that Nordic Poles greatly assisted the actual walking side of things, providing much needed support and stability and it didn't take me long to convert one of my poles into a camera-mono-pod sort of thing which supported the camera and helped me to stand still while filming (always a good idea) but lack of stability and balance were still causing too much sideways wobbleage, resulting in unusable film.
A bit more lateral thinking ensued and now, by the simple use of a bolt with a wheel nut on it - and a hole drilled in each Nordic pole - I can quickly and easily lock the two poles together to form two legs of a tripod, with the camera mounted on the top of one and myself forming the third leg of the tripod, it not only steadies the camera...it also stabilises the operator, resulting in good quality, usable footage once more...
Necessity is, after all, the mother of invention.
Nordic poles are great if you have stability problems, they make you feel much more secure and less likely to stumble and...as I have just shown...they make super camera mounts as well..
