The 48" GVM Professional Video Aluminum Alloy Motorized Camera Slider features an 11-pound horizontal load capacity as well as a 46" slider range, but that is just the tip of its capabilities. It has an attached controller that enables you to select and control the start/stop positions of the slider along the track, as well as selecting between video and still photo mode. The aluminum rail bed features an adjustable channel that allows you to shoot straight (perpendicular to the track rails) in a parabola to keep a subject centered as the camera tracks from side to side, or it can create a 120° panoramic camera move.
The height-adjustable feet are individually adjustable up to 0.79", allowing you to set up the slider on slightly uneven or non-level terrain, while three 1/4"-20 and three 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes enable tripod mounting. The slider is powered via a removable 4400mAh NP-F-type battery that will run the slider for about eight hours. Six different camera control cables are included allowing the slider controller to interface with most cameras.
Automatic: Allows you to set the sliding range along the slider as it cycles between the end points of the range.
Video capture: Suitable for interviews as the motor is silent.
Delay shooting: Single-frame shooting (time-lapse) with a selectable delay between 1 and 1000.
Adjusting the channel between the support rails allows you to adjust the position of your head on the slider as it moves between the ends of the slider track. The channel can be positioned so there is no movement during the slide. You can also set it so the camera shoots in a parabola to keep the subject centered during the move, or it pans the camera up to 120° to create a panoramic shot.
The slider includes six cables that enable the controller to interface with a variety of cameras from Canon, Sony, Nikon, Pentax, GoPro, Fuji, Panasonic, Lycra, Olympus, Samsung, and others.
