3 Inventive DIY Camera Sliders

first_imgLearn how you can create your own DIY camera slider in these informative how-to videos!A professional camera slider will set you back a few hundred bucks – out of reach for some newbie shooters and hard to justify the cost if you won’t be using it often. Get dramatic, moving shots by creating your own DIY camera slider!  Although there are quite a few DIY slider projects online, these 3 were featured because:The steps to create your own are well laid outThe parts can be found at a local hardware storeThey are all VERY inexpensive to buildIf you’re looking for a DIY slider option for your own shooting, see if one of these homemade projects fits the bill!PVC SliderCost: $20  The guys from Backyard FX have put together this instructional (and funny!) how-to video for their wood and PVC camera slider.  This DIY slider balances on top of a tripod, so you can easily adjust the height.  Two PVC pipes are screwed down onto a 1X4 and used as rails for the sliding camera platform.Steel DIY SliderCost: Under $50  This DIY camera slider utilizes steel rods and sheet metal for a strong sturdy design.  Using products found at his local hardware store, shooter Austin Wilson created this tripod mounted camera slider that looks and functions similar to many pro models.  Spray those rails down with WD40 and you’ve got really smooth slides!Gutter SliderCost: $13  This may be the most low-tech camera slider of the three, but if you’re in a pinch you can build it quickly and for VERY little cost.  Using rain gutter parts you can create this DIY slider that runs the length of the gutter.  Definitely not as stable as professional camera slider models, but major points for ingenuity!last_img read more

DU student union polls: NSUI release first women manifesto

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 22 (PTI) In run up to the Delhi University Students Union polls, the Congress affiliated National Students Union of India (NSUI) today released a “women manifesto” raising issues concerning girls studying in the varsity.Facilitation of sanitary napkins in every college at subsidised rates, female health consultants in all colleges, standard hostel timings for boys and girls, deployment of female constables at bus stop and outside evening colleges, are among the issues listed by NSUI in its women manifesto titled “Priyadarshini”.”We will also start a Big sister programme in all the colleges where all senior students who enroll for the programme will be allotted a fresher who they will guide and mentor throughout their college period,” a NSUI spokesperson said.”At a time when most Rio olympic medals have been bagged by women of the country, girls are constantly being discouraged by university administration for being involved in sports. We will take several initiatives to improve this situation,” he added.The election of office bearers of DUSU and members of Central Council, the most keenly contested students polls in the country, will be held on September nine.Last year, the DUSU polls were swept by BJP-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) trouncing NSUI and AAPs Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) to bag all four positions — president, vice president, secretary and joint secretary.

Glenn Maxwell back on the big stage to push credentials for India

first_imgAll-rounder Glenn Maxwell was disappointed not to get an Australia Test recall during the recent overhaul of the squad but wants to use the one-day series against New Zealand to press his claims for next February’s tour of India.Australia awarded debuts to three batsmen for the third Test against South Africa at Adelaide Oval last month after losing the first two matches in the series on the back of a string of batting collapses.Although the prodigiously gifted Maxwell is better known for his all-out attack in shorter formats, he thought his recent performances had shown the sort of application that might have earned him another chance at Test level. (Also read: Pat Cummins returns to Australia’s one-day squad)”I thought I might have been a chance,” Maxwell told reporters on Thursday.”The way I batted in my first game back at the MCG against the reverse-swinging ball against Queensland, I thought that was a really good sign of the improvements I’ve made in my defence, technique and the way I leave the ball.”But the way the selections have gone I’m probably looking at the Indian series now. I think I’ve probably missed the boat for the home summer.”The 28-year-old, who played the last of his three Tests in 2014, was dumped from the one-day squad for their tour of Sri Lanka having struggled to score any meaningful runs and said the time away from the national set-up had helped him refocus.”I changed a few things slightly technically and slightly mentally as well, more so the way I look at the game and the way I start my innings,” Maxwell, nicknamed “Big Show”, said. (Also read: Trent Boult set to return for ODI opener against Australia)advertisement”I think that’s going to be a big change heading into this one-day series about starting my innings and making sure I get into the game, and not sort of throw it away too early.”Being back in the one-day squad was his first opportunity to show the selectors those changes to his game, he added, but he would be doing his best to make it as hard as possible to continue to leave him out of the test side.”Whether that comes from white ball cricket or any sort of cricket I’m playing whether they come down and watch me at Fitzroy-Doncaster and see how I’m going in club cricket it doesn’t matter,” he said.”I’m going to be trying to make as many runs and taking as many wickets and show them the improvements I have made.”last_img read more

Jamshedpur FC demolish FC Goa 4-1 in ISL tie

first_imgJamshedpur, Nov 1 (IANS) Jamshedpur FC broke their run of four successive draws in the Indian Super League (ISL) with a stunning 4-1 demolition of FC Goa at the JRD Tata Sports Complex here on Thursday.Michael Soosairaj’s brace (17th minute and 50th) along with goals from Memo (77th) and Sumeet Passi (78th) saw Jamshedpur hand Goa their first defeat in the league and climb to third spot on the table. Mourtada Fall’s 33rd-minute equaliser for the Gaurs went in vain as Goa’s defence was found wanting.Having lost the prolific striker Ferran Corominas to a suspension, Sergio Lobera started with Miguel Palanca up top, while Cesar Ferrando made five changes to his Jamshedpur starting XI from the 2-2 draw with Kerala Blasters.The hosts were lightning quick off the blocks with young Gaurav Mukhi forcing Mohammad Nawaz into an excellent save as early as the second minute. The young Goa custodian made an even better one a minute later from Sergio Cidoncha’s well-struck free-kick.The hosts’ early pressure paid off in the 17th minute with Soosairaj calmly slotting the ball into the net after Goa failed to clear a Cidoncha corner.Goa failed to threaten a dominant Jamshedpur until the 26th minute when Hugo Boumous struck the woodwork with a fierce low shot.A few minutes later, the visitors equalised against the run of play through Fall’s header after Edu Bedia had flicked on a Boumous free-kick. The hosts should have gone into the break with their noses in front but Memo blasted his shot high and wide after he had peeled away at the far post from a Cidoncha free-kick.Ferrando’s men did have their deserved lead four minutes into the second half with Soosairaj bagging his second. The 24-year-old made no mistake after he was released behind the Goa defence by Cidoncha following a quick breakaway.A horrible Lenny Rodrigues back pass almost gifted the hosts another goal before Tiri came close with a header. At the other end, Bedia threatened with a couple of long-distance attempts with the hosts remaining in the ascendancy.A belter of a Memo strike from just outside the box after Goa failed to deal with a corner in the 77th minute sealed three points for Ferrando’s men. Passi added gloss to the scoreline just a minute later after he tapped into an empty net following a layoff from fellow substitute Carlos Calvo.–IANSgau/vmadvertisementlast_img read more
