edelkrone 80767 Overview

The SliderPLUS Medium from edelkrone is a slider that uses a unique tracking mechanism that allows the rails of the slider to move with the camera when mounted on a tripod. This gives the slider 24" of sliding range in a unit that is only 17.2" long. 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. The slider supports loads up to 13.2 pounds.

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 tripods, and comes with interchangeable 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screws for mounting a camera or flat base tripod head to the mounting plate.

question

Any applicable approaches other than the expensive Syrp system for a slow and smooth sliding with this slider? Some other sliders can be installed with a wheel for sliding control.
Asked by: Vernon
I actually own all of the electronic attachments (action & target modules) for this system and I can honestly say that they are awesome but do take some setup that often I just don't have the time for so my personal favorite way to use the slider is mounted on a tripod and pushed by hand. It is a super smooth slide even hand operated. I really think you'll find that the slider is the most well built, smooth and consistent you've ever used! I hope His was helpful!

question

Can I place this slider one end high and the other end low if I want to move a camera from high to low or from low to high?
Asked by: Vernon
Yes, you should be able to. Be aware that your tripod must be well braced and positioned so it does not fall over. Between shots, be sure to place the camera at the lower end.

question

What would be a reasonable tripod make/model recommendation for this medium size slider? I purchased this slider and it seems pretty stable on my Manfrotto Befree Carbon tripod. Why would Edelkrone recommend the Manfrotto 536 Carbon model for such a tiny/light weight slider? I would rather have a tripod more portable to match the slider.
Asked by: Daniel S.
I have an EdelKrone slider plus and the reason they suggest a bigger tripod is that the normal way to use a slider is with two supports. In my case I use a lightweight single tripod with no issues. If you have a motor for your slider one tripod works because you aren't touching it during a shot. If you are moving it by hand then one tripod may not steady the vibrations induced by hand movement.

question

How do you level this slider on uneven terrain?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
this slider is supposed to go between the tripod legs and the head. There are two opposite sliding plates. one is attached to the tripod legs other to the head. So when you slide, you get the maximum distance.
