barebones COTS gun-mounted camera leveller

V1.0

Keeps the camera level +/- 32 degrees

Just a 6mm rod end, an M6 threaded rod, and other nuts and washers.

Bolted to the Tiberius tri-rail riser.

Not as heavy as a real steadicam...

I think I'll add a rubber bushing to dampen it and reduce its tendency to resist turning with the marker.

Your scope is level right? Is that not an option for a solid base or are you looking to reduce the shock so zoomed in images are more steady?

The scope looks to be on an adjustable riser. This lets him arc the barrel up for FS range, and the scope and camera stay level to the target.

Nice execution wingbat

I gotta say, I've never seen a good paintball video from one of these action cams... you can never see the hits. And if you're aiming with a scope, how likely are you to get a hit on camera?
