DIY camera Slider / Slider for timelapse and dolly shots 📷



Selbstgebauter Slider auf Basis einer WS1040 drylin Schiene der Firma Igus aus Köln.

➔ Gleiches Prinzip wie im Video von AstraVid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-Frv4OKodI
➔ Der Schlitten wird über eine Zahnstange und wechselbare Motoren angetrieben
➔ Die Getriebemotoren werden über einen einfachen Spannungsregler kontrolliert.
➔ Der Schrittmotor wird über ein Arduino UNO Board mit einem SainSmart L293D Motor Drive Shield und einem SainSmart LCD Keypad Shield gesteuert. Der Arduino löst gleichzeitig die Kamera aus (per Kabel) um Zeitrafferaufnahmen automatisch aufzunehmen. Das kleine Arduino Programm erlaubt die Einstellung der Fahrtrichtung, der Schritte pro Foto und der Pause zwischen den Fotos.

More Info
Hardware for the Arduino:
➔ Adafruit NEMA 17 Stepper motor http://www.adafruit.com/product/324
➔ Arduino UNO with a SainSmart L293D Motor Drive Shield and a SainSmart LCD Keypad Shield

➔ The drive shield and the keypad are stacked on the arduino
➔ As power source i used a battery holder for 10 AA Cell batteries ~ 12 volt (it is the only power source for the arduino and the motor shield)
➔ To release the camera shutter i use a cable (in my case for nikon cameras) to remotecontrol the shutter of the camera (i needed a 2N2222 transistor between the arduino and the camera)

➔ In this schematic drawing you can see how all combined: http://abload.de/img/slider_diagramlbud4.png

Hardware for the slider
➔ some wood
➔ the slider is from IGUS http://www.igus.eu/wpck/6189/filmtechnology?C=DE&L=en
➔ the gears are modul 1 gears with 10 and 40 teeth
➔ the gear rack is simply glued to the slider

  1. Can i use L293D motor shield?? Thanks

  2. please, posting circuit diagram

  3. Das ist echt gut 🙂 Tolle aufnahmen

  4. I try verify code in Arduino 1.8.1 always error

    Arduino: 1.8.1 (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

    C:UsersUserDesktoptimelapsetimelapse.ino:1:21: fatal error: AFMotor.h: No such file or directory

    #include <AFMotor.h>

    ^

    compilation terminated.

    exit status 1
    Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

    This report would have more information with
    "Show verbose output during compilation"
    option enabled in File -> Preferences.

  5. How can I open the Arduino code?

  6. How much would it be to get you to build me one and ship it to Canada? 😛

  7. Tolle Arbeit !!!! Werde mich auch dran versuchen . Die Zahnstangen und Räder Drucke ich wohl mit einem 3 Drucker vielleicht hat es ja hin . Danke für die Inspiration !

  8. +Fritzfilms Hi your project is really nice.. I want to build the same. Can you please share the detailed wiring diagram to control camera, stepper motor and DC motor. Thanks in advance.

  9. Hi, its great project, you can show detailed wiring diagram? please help to build my own motorized slider, Thanks…

  10. Is it possible to obtain the code? I tried the link but it is empty! Great work

  11. hello , im a student an i work on a similar projet.
    can you ask my question please :
    Why choose gears with 10 and 40 teeth ? do you have calculations ?
    Thank's 😉

  12. Hello , I'm trying to copy your project , thank you very much for all the information, but still failed to make it work, I Might DATR in scheme connection between the LCD and motor controller but the white wires and the transistor please , thank you very much

  13. Would you mind making me a set and sell it to me?

  14. Very elegant style, I really like stepper motor part. If its not too much hassle could you please post wiring schematics, I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you.

  15. Hi,..Just information to all my DIY brothers this is step by step how to make motorized slider controller :
    basic with arduino , with FREE CODE & PROGRAM for every one ,.. see this link ..
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIv7pEgDT1M good luck to all my brothers
    see my channel , so U can make pan tilt controller and android controller too with free arduino code

  16. Can you make a video on how you built your slider? It's very good and I'd love to recreate it.

  17. Ich muss sagen, der slider sieht wahnsinnig gut aus, richtig gute Arbeit. Ich würde ihn gerne z.T. nachbauen, allerdings ohne den Auslöser für die Kamera, quasi nur den Slider mit Stoppfunktion. Ist dies damit überhaupt möglich und hast du dafür eine Anleitung? Vielen Dank schonmal

  18. hey can you tell me how did you connect the shutter release cable and arduino plzzzzz !!!!

  19. please, posting circuit diagram

  20. If you do a video tutorial step by step in this slider, you will have great success and I will be the first to give a "like" 😉

  21. Hi,
    great work! Can you send me a photo, what is inside a wood box? Thanks

  22. Hello, Where I can buy one module gears with 10 and 40 teeth?

    Greetings and thanks.
