So, if you have not heard of Edelkrone before, they are Turkish company specializing in high quality camera and DSLR rigs. All of the products on Edelkrone’s site look very impressive, intuitive and sleek. Their newest product however is just extraordinary. This pass month they released the SliderPLUS+. It really is an innovative camera slider. (If you didn’t know, a camera slider is used to created subtle but high impact motions when recording video.) If you have ever owned a slider before, then you know how cumbersome and annoying to carry they can be. In order to get a 2-foot slide, you would need a 2-foot track. However, this slider is roughly a foot long making transportation easy, but it can achieve slides up to two feet! Edelkrone achieved this by allowing the track itself to move in sync with the camera. (The video below shows this feature) A motion control and motor unit should also be available soon after the official release of the SliderPLUS+ this January. The SliderPLUS+ will be sold for $499.99 USD and be available on the Edelkrone store. I cannot wait play around with what looks to be an amazing camera slider.
