FLUID AND REPETATIVE MOTION

The right engine, with a precise mechanical gearbox result in a very versatile device. It allows not only a very fluid camera live action motion, but also works great for timelapse or stop-motion photography. It is very powerful and enables work with heavy professional cameras. Every movement can be programmed and repeated many times with the same precision.

To avoid camera shake during shutter release, there is a shutter release cable in the set, compatible with the camera used for stop-motion or timelapse photography.

VERTICAL POSITION


The device works in a vertical position. It can handle cameras up to 7kg.
To work vertically or diagonally, the set has to be extended by additional accesories, enabeling assambly in the desired position.

We recommend the following Slidekamera products:

  • INFINITY TRIPOD with 3/8" mount
  • ANGLE Adapter and ANGLE SUPPORT mouting plate with 1/4" and 3/8" screws for mounting the slider
  • ANGLE Adapter for mounting the camera
  • universal 3/8" screw for assembly the ANGLE Adapter and the tripod
  • DUAL SUPPORT with two universal brackets for mounting the slider on every tripod.

SMART EYE X SLIDER

SMART EYE X SLIDER allows for automatic continuous tracking of the object by the camera/photocamera during the movement of the cart.

Thanks to the SMART EYE the object that is being filmed remains all the time in the centre of the frame. VIDEO
