Diabolo Cam: The Sequel
« on: June 18, 2006, 12:20:18 AM »
I was so pleased by the kind words some of you had for the original Diabolo Cam movie that I've made a sequel.

This movie goes beyond the first with the:
2D Shuffle Cam, The Stick Cam (camera on a stick) and more.

Right now, I've only uploaded to Youtube and the video is grainy.

But if there is interest in the video, I'll find a way to put it up normally somewhere. (It's bigger than normal and I'm afraid my usual website can't handle it.)

The original is here: http://www.cecebell.com/chickenguy/diabolocam.mpg

Keep 'em flying!

How do you get the camera in the cup?

Very creative idea!  :D

Just need to do an infinite suicide with the cam on the end of the stick!  :wink:

Nice idea with the camera on the stick abd an even better one to point out what was going on. I wouldn't have had a clue what was going on.

It's crammed in there with styrofoam.
there's a pic on my website:

 If I ever do it again, I'll build something that will screw in, because the styrofoam falls out WAY to often. (Also tempting to buy a better, lighter camera.)

>>Infinite suicide with stickcam: Good suggestion, I'll try it. But the camera makes the stick so unwieldy it's hard to do anything. The regular suicide almost destroyed the camera.

>> how long did it take you to think of puting a camera in a diabolo?
Sadly, the idea came from the fact that I wanted to make a video but didn't -- and still don't -- have any tricks that pass muster as a video of the week.

Thanks for watching!

sweet video! i enjoy watching something out of the ordinary. some ideas for next...maybe a shoe cam or hat cam. if you can swing it, a fisheye lens would be pretty cool too.

i like this trend of youtube and a direct download link. i can watch the youtube when i'm here at my parents' house, but when i go to my own place, i can download the video :)

Indeed some vomit inducing footage there!  Nice idea, the orignal was good and it's nice to see that you're pushing the boundries.  The skatebike cam was my favourite, a great perspective.

I assume you're chucking about a mini-toy camera...?

thats really cool, love it.

I think it would be rather cool to have the camera staitionary aswell though. So the diabolo spins around the camera as it might mean i dont fall out of my chair again :P

Imagine a high throw then!
