Being only 15cm long, SliderONE seems to be indeed the world’s most portable slider available out there. But, don’t let its size mislead you as it’s a professional sturdy build unit capable of carrying up to 20lbs (9kg). As the manufacturer Edelkrone highlights, SilderONE delivers just the slide you will use the most.
The device also provides friction adjustments so that users can get the right amount of drag for silky smooth slides. SliderONE also has a 3/8-16 mounting component along with a locking dial to safely lock its position when required. It’s worth noting, though, that the unit is optimized for manual use only, preferably on a tripod setting and there are currently no electronic modules available for it, so shooting a controlled motion time-lapse videos would be an issue.

Despite its small size, SlideONE is definitely capable of adding more cinematic production value to any project when shooting video, especially when you are traveling around and need to move quickly from location to location. It’s ideal for close-ups and midrange shots to achieve more depth in your productions. Plus, it’s compatible with the FlexTilt Head being the Edelkrones’ ultimate Pan&Tilt solution to frame even the most challenging shots.
Overall, the SilderONE seems to be a pretty neat option for all filmmakers looking for a small and compact slider that easily fits in a backpack and it’s most suitable for adding more depth and dynamics to your shots while filming on the go. Unlike most other conventional cine sliders, SliderONE won’t give you a huge range of motion and flexibility in terms of movement.
Yet, If you are one of those filmmakers who want to fit an entire gear kit into one small rolling bag and a backpack the SliderONE will be a nice add-on to your equipment. You can claim yours directly from Edelkrones’ official website or through authorized resellers around the world.
