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...

The following images are not intended as a tutorial in the strictest sense, but they will take us through the process I follow to arrive at my final finished product. Enjoy...



The Plan


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.



Assembly


In here I will probably prattle on about assembly steps and any custom fitting I need to do. Probably.



Features


Here I will go over the features of the Jib and how they work.



Summary


Final summary about the project, including any thoughts on what could be improved and how well it works, or doesn't.



Finished Pictures


Who doesn't love beauty shots of finished projects?



Demo video


Test footage will be uploaded to my Youtube channel once I get some time to do some practice shots with it.
