The right engine, with a precise mechanical gearbox result in a very versatile device. It allows not only a very fluid camera live action motion, but also works great for timelapse or stop-motion photography. It is very powerful and enables work with heavy professional cameras. Every movement can be programmed and repeated many times with the same precision.
To avoid camera shake during shutter release, there is a shutter release cable in the set, compatible with the camera used for stop-motion or timelapse photography.
The device works in a vertical position. It can handle cameras up to 7kg.
To work vertically or diagonally, the set has to be extended by additional accesories, enabeling assambly in the desired position.
We recommend the following Slidekamera products:
