John Park’s Workshop Camera Slider Test @adafruit @arduino @johnedgarpark
Motorized sliders are great for truck/dolly shots and time-lapse photography. I decided to upgrade my camera slider capabilities from a LEGO Technics tow truck to something more … professional.
It just so turns out, there is an excellent DIY Bluetooth Motorized Camera Slider guide in the Adafruit Learning System. So I ordered the components, 3D printed the parts (including these modified remixes), and built it. I’m super pleased by the results, and impressed by the quality of this design by our own Ruiz Brothers, with contributions by Phil B. and KTOWN. It was a fun build and will be a useful tool.
