Video sliders can allow you to achieve smooth, horizontal camera moves, emulating that of large, bulky and expensive track and dolly systems. They’re often small enough to bring along on every shoot while making a large impact on the production value of your shots. Sliders can range in price from hundreds to thousands of dollars, so this $75 DIY slider idea from Rhino Camera Gear could be a great tool to get your 2015 rolling off to a good start.
