1. I decided I wanted to make an automated slider/timelapse rig, but didn't want to pay the hefty cost that some of the manufacturers charge. I did some reasearch and found all the parts I would need to create my own. Here is a list of parts you will need if you decide that you want to make your own as well.

    A big thanks to Jay/MiLapse from Dynamic Perception for all the help and guidance on the project. To see their products or to buy one of their awesome timelapse kits visit http://www.dynamicperception.com/

    Aluratek Universal 12V / 1.5A Li-ion Rechargeable Battery Pack

    The top plate is a rectangular piece of aluminum with a hole cut out to mount the ball head, and the platform that the rail is bolted to is a saw horse from home depot that I cut the top off of. The two idler bearings are just skateboard wheel bearings that are spaced out with washers. The end pieces are square tubing.

    Any questions or comments let me know!

  2. Made a simple track dolly using 40mm PVC tubes.
    2 T mount fittings and 8 rollerblade wheels with bearings.

    This is the first day of testing and tuning.

  3. This is my version of a diy pocket dolly, driven by an adjustable 12V gear motor. The power comes from 8 AA rechargeable batteries, which are integrated into the controller. The dolly is pretty light and compact so that it fits in a backpack and I can take it with me on walks and on holiday trips.
