The Physics of a Simple Camera Stabilizer
Bartlett, Albert A.
Physics Teacher, v50 n5 p268-269 May 2012
Approximately 50,000 people ran and walked down the street past my home in the 33rd annual running of the 10-km Bolder Boulder footrace on the morning of Memorial Day, May 30, 2011. In addition to the serious runners, there were many individuals dressed in all manner of amusing festival costumes; some were jogging and some were walking. Early in the race I noticed a man who was jogging while using his right hand to hold a vertical wooden pole that was about three meters long and perhaps three centimeters in diameter. On the upper end of the pole, above the heads of the other runners, was a small video camera that was pointed forward to photograph the runners who were ahead of the jogger. At the lower end of the vertical pole were fastened several blocks of wood.
