Introduction: Camera Track Rail

This camera rail and slider is a great example of custom rail design for shooting video.

We used this rail and a 3D-printed camera slider to shoot part of our Kickstarter video.

If you've got some wire and a 3D printer you can bend/print any sort of rail and slider set-up. Shoot with an slr or your smart phone; create an arched rail or just something straight; you could even create some sort of roller coaster rail. You know, for some, like, high quality...cat videos!

Wooooooo

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials and Tools

Material: 2 lengths .125" Galvanized Steel Wire

Tools: Wire Cutters, Soldering Iron, Solder, Clips

Time: 2 Hours (10 minutes bending)

Skill Level: Medium

You will also need a 3D-printed phone- or camera-slider

Step 2: Bend Some Wire

Step 3: Assemble

Step 4: Enjoy

We used the rail while shooting our Kickstarter video (0:42 - 0:46)
