Thanks Terry

Yes, I saw that trailer - amazing.  There is also one or two videos showing one of the machines he uses and how he set up a scene in the desert.  I think I saw that on Vimeo.

I have a turntable that can either be attached to the "truck" on my slider or it can be used standalone.  I should have that operational today (Sunday, 13-Jan-2013).

BTW - I saw your web pages last week - are you still living in China?  What a beautiful place - I feel destined to move there someday.  My parents lived there for about a year and a half - they loved it.  Some of their photos & stories were amazing - like yours.

Anyway, here's the camera slider "in operation" for the first time  . . . https://vimeo.com/57283652

Here's my very first time-lapse video compiled from photos using the camera slider with remote shutter control.

Ya, I know the quality is lousy but the video shows proof of concept - it actually works!

Woo hoo!

I have the Arduino finally controlling the motor and the camera shutter

Next, I'll put this all together and do some time-lapse photography

The "truck" slides along nicely - very little friction . . . well, when compared to tugging an anvil in the sand.

Here's a short video . . .

I'm making a little more progress . . .

I'm making a little progress

Keeping it simple - materials, tools, fabrication and design

Thanks vasquo

I'm hoping movement of the truck (?) won't be difficult to push or pull so perhaps my "solution" will hold steady.

We shall see.

Thanks again,

This idea began taking root when I was playing around with stuff yesterday and discovered a way to make a coupler to join a stepper motor and a 3/8" threaded rod using 3/8" x 1/2" (id/od) tubing.

So . . . then I cranked up SketchUp and created a design for a small camera slider - proof of concept only.

We'll see how it goes . . . more photos with progress later today.

I connected a standard servo and a continuous rotation servo to my Arduino Uno last week - worked great.

Maybe I can help you resolve the problem . . .
