The Edelkrone SliderPLUS PRO Large (70cm) Slider Kit is a unique slider which has effectively twice the slider travel as its length due to a unique tracking mechanism, so it has a very small footprint which makes it perfect for travel productions.  

This smooth running mechanism runs on steel bearings and allows the rails of the slider to move with the camera when mounted on a tripod, which gives 700mm of slider travel, although it is only 537mm in length, weighs only 2.14kg and comes in a pouch small enough to fit inside a suitcase!

Its compact sizes makes it ideal for travel, as it takes of up less room in your camera bag than other sliders with a similar sliding range and it supports loads of upto 12kg, so it is suitable for C300, FS-700 etc and other small cameras.

The tracking system works by having two thin bands that are connected to each side of the mounting plate and base plate. When placed on a flat surface, the base plate travels in the opposite direction of the mounting plate. This will yield results of traditional slider. To take advantage of the design, the SliderPLUS needs to be mounted to a tripod. When mounted on a tripod, the movement of the base plate is restricted, causing the rails to move through the base plate in the same direction as the mounting plate.

With traditional sliders, you're often limited to the amount of dolly in/out you can do, because the slider itself usually will end up in the shot eventually. With the SliderPLUS, the rails are also retracting backwards with the camera, allowing for longer dolly in/out shots. A lock mechanism can be engaged to keep the slider from moving if the tripod becomes unlevel.

The slider provides a 3/8"-16 threaded hole at the bottom of the base plate for attaching to a tripod and we supply this system with a lightweight Manfrotto head without charge, so that you can operate pan and tilt as well as slide.

There are superb time lapse motion control versions of this system which we also supply for DSLR weight and heavier duty models to support up to 6.5kg payload cameras.
