One of the hardest things to do is to travel with a slider – and edelkrone has just solved that problem with their new edelkrone Slider Plus+ – this is amazing and I don’t know why nobody has made one of these before. I’ve tried to travel with a 3 foot slider on a plane and it was a real bear to handle… wish I’d had this to try out!
And, this is only $499 and the first batch will be available in early January.
We’ve also got some additional photos exclusively here at planet5D… read on!
edelkrone – Slider Plus+
More Slider Plus+ info with pix
Finally a 2 foot professional slider that fits in your backpack.
Another first from, edelkrone.
Slider Plus+ is the only 2 foot slider in the world that you can fit in your backpack.
Thanks to Slider Plus+es unique design it uses only half the amount of rails to achieve the extra long distances it goes. So you carry half the weight you would normally carry around.
It is compact! So you manage the setup much easily.
Smooth Start and Stop
Slider Plus+ moves as a whole. So more mass travels when you operate the slider. This gives smoother and very natural starts and stops compared to the regular slider designs.
Ready for the motorized motion control unit.
Slider Plus+ has a port on its side to attach the “motorized motion control module”. It is convenient for repeating the same shot or time lapse projects.
Longer dolly-in/out range
When shooting dolly-in/out style, Slider Plus+ gives double the range compared the regular slider designs. When you pull the camera back the rails also retracts and they donโt interfere with the shots.
Amazing built quality with 1st grade materials
Slider Plus+ has 22 roll bearings in its design. The rails are military grade chrome coated steel. Since itis gonna be with you all the time, it is designed and built to LAST.
Works both on tripods and on ground
Thanks to the 4 height adjustable knobs under the Slider Plus+ it works on ground too. Slider Plus+ delivers 2 ft travel on tripod and 1 ft travel on ground.
Quick Drag Adjustment and Locking
Quickly and conveniently adjust the amount of drag you want for better speed control. Or lock completely in any position with a flick of a knob.
