Introduction: DIY $20 Camera Slider
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
Step 4: Put Your Camera on the Mount and You're Done
Now put your camera on the camera mount and you're ready to use your brand new slider that only cost you 20 bucks!
