Here are a few shots using the video slider. Lessons learned:
- The slider must be rock solid – any rocking movement of the slider looks like a drunk cameraman. I had good success putting the slider directly on a board on the ground and then securing the ends with heavy weights.
- The bearing/slide must be very clean – any single metal shaving or mosquito wing on the slide will show up as a jitter in the camera movement.
- By tightening the slider mount lock I can push the slider harder – this results in a slow consistent movement.
