    Please! I really need to know, is there a special way keeping a camera steady during brickfilming?
    I brickfilm a lot, and they are pretty good, my only problem is a wobbly camera! Besides a tripod, and remote, is there a way to keep it steady? ( I use a Cannon PowerShot )
    Please help me!

    your best bet is to try to make a frame to hold the camera. then you have to find a way to secure the frame and camera to the table your working on. you could take a small peace of wood to set your camera on, then drill some holes in it and run large zip ties thru the holes and around your camera and then take a large board to use as your work space and just screw or nail or glue the small board and camera to the larger board. Just an Idea…

    To make your camura steady either use tape or stickeytack :)

    I use a Cannon Powershot, too. If you can’t use a tripod, try making a base out of LEGO. But I use a tripod and it works quite well.

    You could use tape or sticky tack. The best thing to use depends on which kind of camera you use. I use a Logitech HD Pro C910, and I think sticky tack is the best :)

    Like everyone else says, just use tape, sticky tack, or build a rig out of LEGOs to support it if you can’t get a tripod. 😎

    That is maybe the best way to do it.
    But, my C910 can’t stand still in a lego cradle :(

    I took a look and I see what you mean. Just fold it up as tight as you can and THEN build the cradle. 😐

    If there is lego around the camera i can’t bump it. Aha!
