Tripod Heads

It seems you don't have to buy an entirely new tripod if you want fluid pans and tilts. You can get a tripod head attachment which has these abilities.

Also, there is some guy who builds his own Steadicam type things from everyday objects, and has a book explaining how: http://www.dvcamerarigs.com/index.html

The Fig Rig does look very good: http://services.manfrotto.com/figrig/, but it also looks eminently replicable.

Strangely enough, there is a shop right outside the internet cafe that I'm currently occupying that sells virtually every Manfrotto product, including the Figrig (for about £99), as well as professional digital film cameras, and all the accesory equipment needed for making small films.

Even stranger, perhaps, is that the video of Mike Figgis using the Fig Rig was filmed directly outside too.
