This tutorial offers a cheap and and easy way of making a DIY cam slider that is tripod mounted.
Total build cost around 20 dollars US.
It is by no means perfect and it does not give Hollywood stile slides but the slides are pretty good as can be seen in the last part of the video.
It is still under development so stay tuned for updates on modifications.
Tripod mount for the Go Pro is inspired by RAMBO who is the moderator of the Go Pro user forum.

Please use safety equipment when working with tools and make sure that correct measures are taken to protect the surface you are working on.

Please do not fit heavier cams on this mount. It is a light weight construction specifically designed for light cams!!!
