MotionControl allows manual and programmed movements for Floatcam and Floatcam HD slider/jib systems for time lapse/CG applications or when consistent repeated takes are required.  Each movement can be repeated up to 99 times and extended “time extension” up to 99 times allowing the user more than enough opportunity to get that perfect shot. You’ll really appreciate the wide range of speed settings from 0-20cm/sec. and a speed ramp range from 0.5-2.5 seconds. Due to the patent pending, precision counter balance system on DollyCrane and DollyCrane HD family, only one motor is required for all functions of the motion control. The MotionControl System allows the use of the mutli-angled slider to achieve a wide range of unique shots.

DSLR — Time Lapse and Stop Motion Modes:

Time Lapse Continuous mode allows for continuous movement across the slider during the time lapse process. When using Canon and Nikon DSLRs and the accessory camera control cable, you will require an Intervalometer appropriate to the DSLR used in order to control the time lapse record sequence.  No interval cables are supplied to control DSLR cameras.

The time lapse continuous setting also gives you the option to read a saved track from the memory, or manually set the start and stop position desired.

Time Lapse After Shots or Shoot-Move-Shoot mode works similar to the continuous time lapse mode, but the camera stops before each shot. Set the distance, number of shots, movement time, and control shutter and exposure of DSLR’s. Multiple image sequences for HDR shooting are also capable in this mode.

Stop Motion Distance mode allows programmed distance between each shot with precise accuracy. Every move and shot is initiated manually through the controller.

Stop Motion Shot mode allows camera movement with factory settings and programmed number of shots. In this mode, it is possible to set the total movement time, number of shots and control shutter and exposure of DSLR cameras with the use of the accessory camera control cords.
