A DIY Robotic Camera Dolly to End all Camera Dollies

DIY robotic camera dolly

We’ve featured several camera slider builds here, and I’ve even built one myselfHowever, nothing I’ve seen so far compares to this robotic camera dolly system built with Servocity’s Actobotics parts.

This truly robotic camera mount features an Arduino Microprocessor (Amazon) with a small touch screen to allow the user to adjust the dolly’s behavior.  The contraption can pan and tilt, but is also capable of rolling on the rails underneath.  An encoder from Lynxmotion is used to precisely position the assembly when these wheels are utilized.

Check out the video below to see how well this excellent “roboslider” works: Continue reading
