If you are in the market for a portable and compact motorized slider that will allow you to capture some buttery-smooth close-ups or mid range shots for your productions, the latest Edelkrone’s SliderONE and Motion Module might be the perfect fit for your needs. Being advertised as the world’s most portable motorized motion control system, the combo takes up almost no space in your backpack while offering advanced slide control for capturing a wide variety of creative shots on the go. Simply set the start and stop points as well as the speed of your slide using the intuitive user interface of the dedicated app and leave the system to do the rest for you.
Beyond that, you can utilize those camera slide movements to capture some stunning time-lapse videos. By enabling the built-in Convert to Timelapse functionality, the Motion Module will extend the slide over a period of time while keeping the initial slide parameters the same. This neat feature not only allows you to compose precise time-lapse shots with ease but also makes them more versatile and sophisticated by accelerating, slowing down or idling the camera movement along the line. Further, you can use the system to setup effortlessly a stop motion animation in a similar way.
The Motion Module provides speeds as low as 10µm/sec which is more than enough even for the most demanding macro slide shots. The unit operates with Canon LP-E6 batteries and can run for hours due to the optimized built-in power management system. With the ability to be fully controlled from your mobile device, the Motion Module makes the slide motion control simple and straightforward while taking away all the hassle, thus allowing you to focus entirely on the creative workflow instead.
The SliderONE, on the other hand, features Friction Adjustment and Safety Lock mechanisms along with robust CNC machined aluminum enclosure. The unit is only 15cm long, yet it’s capable of carrying up to 20lbs (9kg) payloads. Despite its small size, SliderONE is obviously capable of adding more cinematic production value to any project, especially when you are traveling around and need to move quickly from location to location. In combination with the Motion Module, the system takes the slide motion to a whole new level by adding high production value and compelling depth to your shots wherever you go.
