So, I've come to the realization that PVC pipe is like Lincoln Logs for adults. I ran up to Lowes one weekend and picked up about $7 bucks worth of pipe along with a can of matte black spraypaint and got to work. I found some pretty good DIY projects online and decided to slap together a shoulder mount for my 550D and my Z1u. Here are the results.
PVC for this project: $7
Handle Grip: $6 @ walmart. Rang up at $7. Took Advantage of "scanning law." Received $6 back. Total in the end $1.
Spray paint: $2.50
I was using the DSLR to take the photos so I mounted the Z1 instead.
