Use Furniture Sliders As A Cheap Camera Dolly

Here's a really inexpensive and clever way to smoothly move your video camera around: place furniture sliders under each tripod leg. Watch the video to see it in action.

Furniture sliders are inexpensive and can be picked up from any home/hardware store, but these ones glide over linoleum, tile, carpet and cement.

There's some shakiness in some of the shots, which might be fixed with shorter tripod legs or adding some weight to the tripod, but it's still a very clever DIY dolly from Justin Leyba of ImagineNow Entertainment.
