    Very nice! You'll be able to get some nice angles and shots now. Does the camera vibration much at the end of the long arm?

    As someone who also has a small shop, this is SUCH an awesome idea! I definitely need to figure something like this out too!

    Super job mate. It's going to make filming so mush easier. I suspect you're going to get a lot of use out of it. I've never regretted making a roof mounted arm like this for my 8×6 workshop

    I like you design. I've made a couple of rigs similar to this but they have alway been a little wobbly when fully extended. How stable is your design when at full reach?

    I also work out of a small shop and the tripod drives me crazy. I’m going to look to adapt your camera mount arm to my situation! Great video!

    A suggestion to remove more wobble from the long stretch would be to put a set of ceiling rails like the ones you already have between them and make them travel on them. Then mount the camera arm on that rail. You don't have to "re-mount" the camera from side to side, just slide it to the new position readjust the arm (which can be shorter now) and your good to go. You could even support the longer rails along the middle of the track at the outside to prevent sag, by attaching to the ceiling at strategic points with single rail I-beam type connections.

    Wonderful solution! Yes, tripods can be problematic. This should give you some nice top-down camera views also. Looking forward to seeing this used in your next videos.

    Nice work! I love how you maximize such a small workspace.

    A thought on the joints – there are mechanisms that release tension when you press them, rather than the flip handles you've got, that would allow you to grab the joint, squeeze, and reposition. If you were to accidentally let go of the arm, the joint would lock and not drop your rig. Unfortunately Google is failing me right now or I'd supply a link.

    Since I get a lot of questions about it: The clamps I used are called eccentric clamps. I bought mine over here but they can be bought elsewhere as well: http://bit.ly/2m9abzk (not sponsored)

    Hello
    I'm surprised you did not put any compensation spring or gas spring. There is no risk when you unscrew a screw that the camera can drop in a pinch?

    Always captivating and original ideas, keep it up!

    New subscriber here! Just wanted to say congrats on this project – it's simple yet powerful. I too suffer from the "small workshop" problem, so I'll definitely make something similar! Keep up the good work!
