edelkrone® – Slider Plus.

Ive been a fan of Edelkrone since I got my hands on their Pocket Rig. After a substantial amount of hype on their website and facebook page, they announced the release of a new product: the Sliderplus+. The image above makes the dolly look like any other but in fact its quite ingenious. Both the camera platform AND the slider rails move to in effect double the actual usage length of the dolly – hence it really is compact but punches well above it weight (length??) To understand this I would suggest you have a look at this video:

With a list price for the manual version of $499 its not ultra cheap, presumably the motor option will be released early in the new year, but it does come in at around half the price of a kessler pocket dolly which is probably one of the most popular on the market. Shipping is due to begin on Jan 4th 2013 with limited stock but Im looking forward to seeing initial reviews. Im particularly curious to see if there is much play/shake in the shot with TWO moving parts, but I have to say the Edelkrone gear Ive bought has been precision machined so we shall wait and see.
