So simple

Stop getting super shaky footage with your GoPro by holding the camera straight on the housing. Instead, make a handle using an old paint roller you probably have laying around the house.

Parts you’ll need to make a DIY GoPro handle:

  • Paint roller handle
  • GoPro Tripod Mount
  • 1/4-20 bolt, 1.5″ long
  • 1/4″ washers and nut
  • Tools you’ll need:

    • Metal saw
    • Hammer
    • Cutting pliers
    • Screwdriver
    • 1/4″ socket and ratchet

        This was cheap and easy, but made a big difference in my hand held everyday type shots.

        Does this handle transfer hand movement on it to the camera via the mic or does this isolate the camera mic from your hand moving on the handle?

          It definitely helps a lot, if not eliminates it completely.

        I did this using a bolt and one piece of the three way arm. Then I can hold it sideways.

        You guys should make a video about using a broomstick with this handle! :)
