Here are some ways to use camera sliders to make your footage look more professional and cinematic.
When it comes to camera movement, sliders offer so much versatility and style without having to work very hard to get it. If you want to take your slider game to the next level, Parker Walbeck shows you five super simple camera moves you can do with pretty much any unit on the market, as well as how to avoid common obstacles you might come up against while trying to pull them off.

Admittedly, many of these moves are really basic and don’t really require much (if any) guidance for new users. In other words, I doubt anyone buying a camera slider really needs to learn about side-to-side movement, because, hello, that’s what you bought the thing for.
