Made from $7 worth of bits from Ikea! DIY 5D DSLR Shoulder mount

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!
