Gear Best Slider

Postby sidd finch » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:52 pm

I have been trying to incorporate some slider camera views in my video work but I am just too "Mr Fumbles" when it comes to smooth slides. Then I came across this and it looks pretty intriguing.

That makes it even better. It looks to be designed for small cameras and smartphones which is right in my wheelhouse. I also like that you can purchase additional track for the thing. From the videos I have seen I especially like how it is used in time lapses.

Well the slider came and I really like it. The motor noise is noticeable but an external mic will fix that or mute and add a sound bed. Tried to do a quick test but I need to take some more time to get the lens set up better.

That looks really good Sidd, very smooth. Is that you playing the piano?

Funny you say that John, I asked their union representative and there was such an uproar in the bee hive that they threatened to put a tariff on honey production. Then they all started chanting... Build the hive build the hive...

I ran for my life. The ants are much more terrestrial bound and eager to so they as so good natured... :hyst:
