I’m a big fan of DIY projects when it comes to photography & videography. A while ago, I used the to help customize a few of these projects. Since my is out of commission right now, I’m playing catch up on posting a few things to the forum. Just thought I’d share some practical uses that the helped me in building a few photo/video rigs.
1. Camera Dolly Cart
2. Action Camera Video Slider
Proofgrade acrylic for the carriage deck and slider feet. Used Actobotics X-Rail and v-wheel kit to get super buttery smooth linear motion.
3. Rotating Product Tabletop
Designed to work with a Syrp Genie Mini, this is just proofgrade acrylic attached to Actobotics hardware.
4. eMotimo Timelapse Slider
This is a 4 foot timelapse slider for use withe the eMotimo Spectrum camera robot. Only part of this that was created with the is the carriage deck using proofgrade acrylic. The rail/slider is all Actobotics parts.
5. uStepper Timelapse Slider
This one is still a work in progress and will be much more affordable as a self-contained time lapse slider. but haven’t even touched the Arduino code for this yet. Very similar build to the previous Actobotics Slider. I also, am working on a time lapse rover using the uStepper, but that doesn’t have any cut parts, yet.
