Edit: sadly some of the parts that I used in this video are no longer available. If you search for DIY motorized sliders, though, you'll find other people with updated recommendations for which servos and controllers to get.
In this video, I teach you step-by-step to build your own motorized camera slider for about $175.
Check out the written article with a list of the components here: philipbloom.net/blog/part-5/
