Can Smaller Be Better When It Comes To Sliders? OK, count me in!
After seeing this awesome new concept from edelkrone called the SliderOne, you will first probably scratch your head wondering if it makes sense, and then later you may slap yourself on the forehead and say “why didn't someone do this before?”
Sliders have always seemed to be ‘longer is better' – but yet when you try to carry a long one on the plane, you're suddenly frustrated. I know I was.
So going the opposite direction and making a very short slider seems very contrary – but yet, if you think about the points made that 50% of all slider shots (after editing gets them) are less than 15cm (which is just about 6″), then you suddenly think… “damn! That makes sense.”
So… what do you think… brilliant bold move or just another busted idea? I'm leaning toward brilliant myself.
Introducing: SliderONE, The World’s smallest slider
Via edelkrone Press:
SliderONE delivers only 15cm of camera travel and yet achieves surprisingly effective results.
Upon analyzing numerous video productions, contrary to what most videographers believe,edelkrone realized that more than 50% of the slider shots have less than 15cm camera travel in them
This is the main reason to introduce a super short slider to the market and create a new category of micro sliders for the videographers.
The extreme portability of SliderONE opens the doors to never before seen opportunities and videographers will finally be able to have a slider with them at all times for whatever production they are shooting.
With SliderONE, having a slider shot is not something to think about. You will have it attached on your tripod by default, and you will always have the option of having a slider shot whenever you like.
