getting smooth panning footages out of a DSLR is an art, which unless you are a humanoid, you won’t be able to get that perfect, jerk-free panning and that is why there are sliders and dollies to help us get the job done professionally. if you are in the market for one, you might want to check out this new kid from Arizona-based White Dot. dubbed the Satellite Slider, it features precision bearing wheels and fully machined sliding surfaces. the latter is machined from 6061 aluminum for strength without the heft, rounding up with a Type-III hard coat anodized finish to give it the awesome look. build quality aside, the slider is offered in three lengths (12″, 24″ and 36″) with a host of accessories and options to choose from so that you can get one which suits your need.
accessories and options include quick change carriage decks, different leg types, a belt drive system with crank handwheel and more. we understand there are much cheaper options out in the market, but we thought Satellite Slider stands out as one that’s more ‘configureable’ for the given price points. though with such a myriad of configuration possibilities, it is not easily expressed on a platform like Kickstarter which the product is currently running a campaign. if you like what you see, do show these guys some love by backing up the Satellite Slider on Kickstarter. prices for the Satellite Slider For DSLR Cameras start at $175. keep going for a pitch video to learn more.
