DIY photography hacks are usually inexpensive, fun and can help you capture better images/video without spending a fortune on new equipment and that's why the COOPH Team (and us) like them so much!


In their latest DIY tutorial, the COOPH Team are making a Gimbal for smartphones so you can capture video with your smartphone that's not ruined by shake. 

All you need to create the DIY Gimbal is a couple of tin cans, some tools for cutting a window in them, duct tape, a paint roller, mop head and a rubber band. You then need to connect them all together (watch the video to see how) and you have a smartphone Gimbal you can run with. 

The final creation does look a bit Frankenstein monster but trust us, it works!
