Using a Tripod Top Slider

2014_06_13_VGW

A tripod top slider is a useful piece of gear to have when you’re on the go. It’s compact and lightweight, making it a portable solution for motion shots.

But do top sliders have the same fluid movement as full-sized sliders?

In this week’s episode of Video Gear Weekly, Rich and I explain how to build a tripod top slider, sharing some of our favorite top-slider shooting techniques.

In this week’s episode, you will learn:

  • How a tripod top slider can help your shots
  • How to attach a tripod top slider to a tripod
  • How to mount and balance a camera on a tripod top slider
  • Shooting strategies that use a tripod top slider

Check out the sample video and this week’s complete episode on lynda.com, and we’ll help you add movement to the shots in your next production.
