The shots are smooth and the motor moves quickly enough for live slider shots. It works beautifully with my phone, GoPro, even my mirror less cameras. It can move my A7Rii with a small prime lens on a flat surface no problem. With heavier loads you can hear the motor a little bit in-camera, but this is the case with any motorized slider. My favorite feature is that it automatically reverses direction at the end of the track. I'm now using this slider for b-roll footage during interviews. It adds movement to the shot adding a lot of production value. It's my mini full-time dolly operator.
Finally, customer service... There was a manufacturing defect with the first slider I bought (it's sorted out now) and the company made it right immediately. This means a lot with so many new camera gadgets coming out from all kinds of inexperienced kickstarter shmucks. Glad to see this company worked to make an actually good product and backed it up with good customer support.
I wasn't paid for this review and I wasn't given the slider for free. I was just impressed by the value of the slider and the customer service of the company.
-Easy set up. Just screw on the feet, install the drive head, connect the rails and add power. I had it running in four minutes.
-Smooth action. The stepper motor seems to do a good job of regulating the speed. I’ve only played with this for an hour, but so far it is steady.
-Light. For travel, I think the rails might be easily strapped to a tripod and the drive head should fit in small padded pouch, or the corner of a camera bag. This will provide smooth dolly shots (manually or powered) in the field when I don’t want to haul my full size tracks.
- ¼-20 threads for tripod mounting. I love that (in addition to the table/floor feet) I can mount the unit on a tripod or clamp system. This is going to be a hugely versatile tool.
-Rail sections appear to have a possibility of shifting slightly. In my unboxing video I show a small gap between the blue-rail-gear pieces. This may be a non-issue…but I noticed it and thought you might want to be aware of the observation.
Extra Track for Movie Maker
Manufacturer reached out and I tried a different one. The first must of been a one off. The other I tried works great. smooth over the areas where the track joins and was a pleasure to use. I'll try and post a video when I get a chance. Excited to see what all this can do.
I wanted to love it. Looked forward to receiving it and trying it. This is what I found, the overall design and the way the dolley turns into a 360 head was great. The build was not. The plastic threads on the tripod mount are not very good and the leg system really seems like an afterthought and something that will break.
However, the biggest disappointment was the gear on the track. I tried everything to get smooth video and timelapse over the run of the rail. I had bought one extension and tried it with the extension and without, the jitter that happens over the inconsistent track ruins the video. I'm not being overly picky here. It is bad. I watched some of the videos before I ordered and figured the guy running it needed to stabilize it better or that it was some other issue but it is the track. Go back and watch the videos again and you'll see the jitters here and there. My jitters were even worse with this thing making it totally useless for video or timelapse. The jitters show in both.
As mentioned I loved the idea and wanted this unit to function. I bent over backwards to try and get this thing to function at an acceptable level and could not.
One other note, I could not get it to climb the Rail if it was more then 300 gms. I thought ok, I'll just record it going down the rail but the weigjt of the phone (Samsung s7) affected the speed it descended so besides the jitters, the speed of movement changed.
Amazon is awesome and the return went smooth. Hopefully a new version comes out in the future
I would recommend this product to all who are planning to buy a slider.
