by steven schwartz1 Comment

edelkrone announces a new, beefed-up version of their award-winning slider, the SliderPLUS PRO.

While the previous model, the SliderPLUS v2 was rated for lighter camera setups, the new SliderPLUS PRO can smoothly move up to 30 lbs. of gear.

Available in three lengths – Medium (20″), Large (28″), and XLarge (35″), the SliderPLUS PRO is compatible with the motion control units. Happy sliding!

What's new with the SliderPLUS PRO

The Magic is still there, yet better

SliderPLUS PRO benefits from the award-winning (Videomaker's Editor’s Choice Award at NAB Show 2013) SliderPLUS V2 design.
The unique design offsets the rail system, doubling the sliding distance.
So you get double the camera movement in terms of actual body size of the slider.

New stylish look

With its smarter, simpler design, SliderPLUS PROis easier to clean, maintain and adjust. 
It’s also very easy to install and adjust the timing belt, which is required for edelkrone’s motion control units.

Includes dolly feature

The crushing advantage of edelkrone’s slider system is still there.
 SliderPLUS PRO’s rail system offsets itself during slider operation. This way, during dolly in/out shots, SliderPLUS PRO discreetly remains out of your picture. You get to wield the advantage of having the perfect slider with amazing dolly feature.

Compatible with the Target Module

You will compose your curved and parallax shots anywhere you can place your tripod on. Target module introduces responsive motion control technology (RMC). Target will let your camera lock onto the subject and keep it in the same position inside the frame.

Compatible with the Wizard Module

Sliders are vital for quality productions, yet they are cumbersome. edelkrone’s award winning slider design has changed this. 
SliderPLUS PRO lives up to the tradition, and delivers great slider movement distance in a smaller form.

Tripod ready, and very steady!

SliderPLUS PRO is tripod-ready right out of the box and performs best when mounted on a tripod .
The play-free slider/camera mount not only improves SliderPLUS PRO’s performance, but also improves its stability as an on-tripod component. 
When SliderPLUS PRO is locked, it becomes a static part of your tripod.

Works on the ground too

SliderPLUS PRO can be operated on ground as well. The adjustable feet are slip free, and allows you to level your slider on any surface. When using your slider on the ground, remember that you will benefit from SliderPLUS PRO’s actual length, during slider operation.

    I’ve been interested about making a movie with a good slider for some time now. Normally I just film by hand, and usually that’s far too shaky, so I’m in need of a slider of sorts and this looks like the perfect one for the time being. I really need to pick this up. Thank you for sharing, you guys are sharing some of the most awesome devices, and I love it!
