My ~$50 DIY camera slider
 
I've kind of been bitten by the "DIY" bug lately, so yesterday I made 4' camera slider. Parts were less than $50 and it took me just a few hours to make. I made a webpage for it on my site and a little how-to vid

Props to Vimeo user Lolo for the original inspiration.

Let me know if you have any comments, questions, suggestions, etc.

cool. Thanks for the vid.

What keeps it from tipping on the tripod when all the camera weight is on one end?

Brian, I not your comment about using light stands. I have a monopod I always carry, so another way to go would be to fashion a way to mount on your regular tripod on one end, and your monopod on other end, there by reducing amount of gear needed.

Paul, I just have a little 7D, so it's not enough to want to tip over the rig... but it does get a little shaky at the ends.

Great tip, Chris. I'll try to incorporate the monopod idea, thanks.
