WELCOME TO MY NEW DIY CAMERA JIB PROJECT
LAST UPDATED: 02/DECEMBER/2020
The Camera Slider is no more. It was a useful tool for video work but it was also an overly large, heavy, unwieldy tool, especially by today's standards where everything is far lighter and more portable without compromising strength too much. So, wanting to expand my video making skills and the types of shots I can produce, I have decided to embark on a new project to build a DIY Camera Jib. As before there are a huge number of off-the-shelf options that are budget friendly, though looking at the ones I like made me realise it was well within my capabilities to build something very similar for half the cost, or less. So, let's begin...
I have a plan? Oh yes, I do- I'll put that here soon enough.
The Parts List
Lots of parts, but not too many- I'll fill this in as I go.
In here I will probably prattle on about assembly steps and any custom fitting I need to do. Probably.
Here I will go over the features of the Jib and how they work.
Final summary about the project, including any thoughts on what could be improved and how well it works, or doesn't.
Who doesn't love beauty shots of finished projects?
Test footage will be uploaded to my Youtube channel once I get some time to do some practice shots with it.
