Camera sliders can be very expensive and if you have just splurged on a high quality video camera or other video and/or audio equipment you may not have the money for a professional slider.
In this tutorial I will teach you how to build your own camera slider so you can experiment with a camera slider and film cool new angles for you vlogs or other videos.
To build this camera slider you will need:
- Wooden blocks or a wooden plank
- 24 inch drawer/cabinet slider
- bolt, washer and nut
- 2 screws
- camera mount
Step 1: Mount Slider on Wooden Blocks
First you mount the drawer/cabinet slider on a wooden block or piece of plank on both ends by simply screwing the slider to the wood.
Step 2: Mount Piece of Plastic or Wooden Block on the Slider
Then put a bolt through the middle hole of the slider through a piece of plastic or wood, put a washer on and secure it with a bolt
Step 3: Mount GoPro Mount or Other Mount on the Wood or Plastic
Now secure your camera mount to the bolt so you can attach your camera
