I added a motor to my slider dolly which allows me to do time lapse dolly moves and also, as shown here, some interesting macro photography. All the closeups are shot in real time with a very slow dolly move. The subjects include my first hand-me-down reflex camera - made in Toronto!

The rig can be set up horizontally, vertically or on a slope.

By switching to an even slower motor, I can introduce a dolly move to time lapse shots taken over a 5 to 30 minute period.

The motor equipment fits on both my light weight slider and the heavy duty one I use for larger cameras like the Canon C300.

I built the limit switches and aluminum mounts and used a speed controller, motors and parts from Servocity.com.
