Automated Camera Motion for Studios, Interiors, and Long Duration Timelapse Video
Time is everything on a shoot. Never waste another second.
The Studio Slider is the most versatile motion control system for capturing super smooth interiors. Optimized for quick setups in the studio space and interior locations, it also works perfectly for long-form astro timelapses Precise and fully adjustable motorized control of your camera movement will allow you to spend less time on setting up and more time setting the stage. The Studio Slider answers the demand for a truly affordable motion control system.
The Studio Slider offers a quick and easy tool-free setup. The components are designed for durability, while remaining lightweight and portable.
Controls at your fingertips offer quick and precise camera movements. You can mount the controller at the end of the slider using a Revolve Friction Arm (not included).
The versatility of the Studio Slider is unmatched by any other motion control system. Compatibility with both sliders and the Revolve Dolly give you the widest variety of camera movement options.
Our heavy duty motors have a 20 lbs. (9 kg) weight capacity when moving the camera horizontally, and a 10 lbs. (4.5 kg) weight capacity when lifting the camera vertically. The slider can be tripod mounted for variable height and can be angled for dramatic incline moves.
The Studio Slider system is designed to be simple and effective. The easy to use controller lets you set up each shot in just seconds and features intuitive, straight-forward controls.
The optional interval timer units controls the camera shutter and the motor simultaneously. The motor will pause at each exposure for your desired interval. Shoot-move-shoot timelapse allows you to capture long exposure (such as astro timelapse), and long duration timelapse shots (up to 4 days). Be sure to select the proper camera shutter cable before adding to cart, you can view the list here.
The optional reverse switch will automatically switch the direction of movement when the camera reaches each stop. You can place your 'stops' at any point along the slider, creating an auto-looping slider for days on end.
There are 2 motor options for the Studio Slider. The FAST motor is generally used for live action video, while the SLOW motor is used for timelapse.
