Here’s a quick video how you to make a Camera Slider so you can get different shots with your DSLR, HD Camcorder, or even a GoPro!!

At the end I’ll use the Slider to show off my latest project – Living room side tables!

Lance,

That was a great video and editing. Your slider also was very nice and you put in a lot of work to make it. Where did you get the white wheels?

This is one awesome great setup. Thank you for sharing with us and I might be stealing a little bit of that design.
Did your camera get damaged at all on the way down?

No, thankfully it didn’t! I actually dropped it twice, the GoPro is a little too light.

Wow that was really nice. No go pro but I have a couple of nice Canon DSLRs that would work on something like that. Not as drop proof.

Lol yeah, thankfully I was using a GoPro! If you plan on building it, make sure you post it on LJ, I’d love to see it.

A nicely detailed build. Why would you need something like this? I’m lost, sorry

Roger, the answer is you don’t, it’s something I’ll use here and there for my videos, both woodworking and other videos. It gives you the professional look to your videos for a fraction of the cost of a professional camera slider.

Sliders are awesome. I’ve been toying with the idea of making an attachment for taking panoramas – too many projects going on though!!

Nice project. Great video
