Create dynamic time-lapse and real-time videos with the Time-Lapse Slider Bundle from Rhino. The bundle features the 42" Rhino EVO Carbon Slider, which supports loads up to 7 lb, and both the Rhino Motion and Rhino Arc motion control systems. Rhino Motion is the brains behind the operation and is used to add motorized sliding motion. Use the wheel on the Rhino Motion control unit to react to live performances, or program a slide with specific in and out points, travel time, ramping, and looping. The Rhino Arc mounts directly on the slider carriage and, after connecting to the Rhino Motion controller using an included cable, allows you to add motorized pan motion to your linear slides to capture dynamic arcing or sweeping shots. For creating time-lapse videos, a built-in intervalometer is used to trigger your camera's shutter when connected to the camera using a separately available shutter release cable.
Adding to the slider's versatility is its interchangeable rail design, which lets you swap the included lightweight 42" carbon fiber rails for optional 24" rails when you need a compact setup, or stainless steel rails to support heavier camera loads. As part of this bundle, an included soft carrying case is designed to fit the fully assembled 42" slider, including the attached Rhino Motion and Rhino Arc, as well as optional accessories such as a fluid head.
Note: It is recommended that you support the 42" EVO Carbon Slider with two tripods, or with a single high-capacity tripod.
Rhino Camera Gear Slider EVO Carbon (42")
The Rhino Slider EVO Carbon is a highly versatile, belt-driven camera slider that can adapt to your shooting needs. The system includes lightweight carbon fiber rails that support loads up to 7 lb, which can be swapped for optional 24" rails when a more travel-friendly size is required. Additionally, optional stainless steel rails are available for when you need to support heavier loads. The slider can also be upgraded to a motorized system with the addition of the separately available Rhino Motion, allowing you to capture smooth live motion and time-lapses with a single motor.
The Rhino Slider EVO features a 3/8"-16 screw on the camera carriage for attaching a ball head or flat-base fluid head. It can be center-mounted on a tripod via 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes in the center of the rails, or supported using two tripods or stands via 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads at the ends of the tripod. You can also setup the slider for ground-level or table-top shooting using the included spring-loaded legs with index marks. The legs fold up for compact storage.

Rhino Camera Gear Motion for EVO Sliders
Rhino Motion includes a motor and controller for Rhino EVO sliders. It's designed to capture live motion and time-lapse shots, and offers two time-lapse modes — Simple Time-lapse and Advanced Time-lapse, the latter allowing you to control the shutter, so you won't need an external intervalometer. The shutter is released by the Rhino Motion itself.
Within the other option — Simple Time-lapse — you get to assign the travel distance, total time, and ramping (easing in and out). You can also assign a Loop setting that lets you repeat the assigned timeplase in the opposite direction so you can film an interview with your B-camera autonomously moving back and forth. After the start of the time-lapse, the LCD of the controller will then display status figures, such as Percentage Done.
During live motion capture you can turn the camera in real time by turning the wheel on the dial, ensuring a better chance of capturing spontaneous moments. The wheel incorporates an advanced magnetic encoder technology that provides highly responsive control during filming as well as menu navigation.
The motor features an ultra-precise .7µ resolution drive system and 7-hour built-in battery. The extended battery life enables you to use Rhino Motion on multiple shoots on a single charge. The motor also functions at nearly silent operation when at low speeds, so you can capture quality video and audio simultaneously.

Rhino Camera Gear Arc Motorized Pan Head for Rhino Motion
Liven up your time-lapse and real-time motion shots with the Rhino Arc Motorized Pan Head. Designed to integrate with an existing Rhino Motion system, the Rhino Arc lets you add panning to your linear movement to create dynamic arcing or sweeping shots. Installing directly on your EVO Slider carriage, the compact device weighs only about 1 lb, yet supports camera setups weighing up to 15 lb. Its internal motor is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery.
The Rhino Arc connects directly to the Rhino Motion controller using an included cable, allowing you to control both linear and pan motion using a single controller. An OLED screen on the Rhino Arc provides quick visual verification that both devices are paired together. For creating time-lapse videos, a built-in intervalometer is used to trigger your camera's shutter when connected to the camera using a separately available shutter release cable.
