I'll get back to you at this as soon as possible, a friend of us built a steadycam thingy for our small PCR-9 miniDv camera and it worked a treat.

Have a look here:
The! site for DIY steadicams: (http://www.homebuiltstabilizers.com/)
Definitly worth to go thru and have a look at the forum. On the site you find a lot of different approaches to that theme. Also dolly and cranes. Its a great resource for DIY projects to get smooth shootings.
On the Cafepress website you can buy some books about DIY projects.
stabilizer books (http://www.cafeshops.com/hbsbooks)
Cody Deegan is selling detailed plans for a complete rig (post, arm and vest).
