The Cinetics Lynx 3-Axis Motorized Slider lets you create dynamic video and time-lapse photography sequences with fluid and precise motorized slides, pans, and tilts. It supports cameras and lenses up to five pounds during vertical moves, and it features three modes: video, time-lapse, and stop motion. Riding on the rugged yet lightweight carbon fiber rails, you can set it up as a 24' slider, or use the included extensions to create a 48" slider with a sliding range of up to 42.8". The carriage glides smoothly over the track joints keeping any jostling of the image to a minimum.

The pan and tilt motors permit 360° rotation, though tilt will be dependent on the size of lens you have mounted on your camera. The powerful motors can drive the slider at up to 2"/second along the carbon fiber rails, and move pan and tilt functions at up to 20°/second. The system can be controlled by an optional controller, or using an available app. The slider fits into a padded carry case for storage and transportation.

Components
This version of the Lynx consists of four main components: the slider, slider motor, controller, and pan and tilt motors.
Control
You can control the slider by using the included controller, or an available app.
Slider Motor
The Lynx Slider Motor attaches to the Lynx Slider in seconds. It is a powerful motor that can lift up to 11 pounds vertically. Additionally, the Slider Motor's sound isolation design enables whisper quiet operation.
Pan/Tilt Motor
The Lynx Pan & Tilt Motors provide a full 360° range of motion in both pan and tilt directions. Sound isolation keeps the motor running quietly. The motors can move cameras up to 5 pounds, and Cinetics recommends staying below this weight for the smoothest motion. Heavier cameras can be used with accurate balancing.

    Lynx 3-Axis Motorized Slider is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good equipment great company service! Purchased 5/2018 - only a few days in hand as I learn the use. One problem surfaced and I contacted the Cinetics company..reply Immediate! Service question answered and problem solved! And this on a Saturday!� That is a major plus in anyone's life...If looking for a slider, this seems to work really smooth from my first experience, more testing and use to come. The price seems about right for what you get as well. The help/discussion forum on the company website is useful and they are still researching updates to current product, so definitely a good way to go here. I would recommend purchase for those reasons.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect motion control I shoot product videos and have used several motion control kits. This is the best I've used. The slider is pretty great by itself, you can take off the motor and the belt and it makes perfectly smooth slides. The motor is a little heavy but is very strong, it could even lift my canon c300 vertically! I had an issue with the tilt motor being loose but I emailed Cinetics and they helped me get it tightened up. The Lynx is easy to setup, and I love being able to save my moves. The mobile app is cool, but I mainly use the controller. Oh and the included slider case is great. I use this slider all the time... two thumbs up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for slow cinematic shots gotta admit this rig took me a minute to learn to use quickly. but once I got the setup down, it does exactly what I need it to. I was initially using a small portable tripod, but that resulted in unwanted wobble. I beefed that up and that was resolved. There are extension rails included which is great for time-lapse shots but less good for video since there is a bump at the seem in the rails. Overall the kit is very portable and also very robust. I'm impressed with the compact size and the versatility. I'm using a Sony A7 camera and it fits perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice slider - but... I've�had other sliders and this beats them all, but only four stars for the following reason: I tried�running my Sony A7R3 and had issues with the controller�firing this camera.��Customer service is slow at Cinetics, nobody answers the phone and thus all you're left with is email exchanges that take a day or two to get answered - frustrating when you've�got work to do. I did get a new controller and all is working fine�now.� Read around and you'll�find this to be a problem others have had as well.� Hopefully, the guys can get a handle on QC because once it's functioning�its the best of the best - just don't expect to get immediate�help from Customer Service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart and quick setup on a lightweight slider. Been using this one since the beta, on it's own its a great slider with a really fast setup time. The preset's are the key for me as i'm able to get a shot going within minute's when a sunset is going off and i'm busy with production. The pan/tilt is a bit heavy but get's the job done with a touch of wobble in really windy scene's (warp does a nice job of stabilizing it). Overall it's a great piece to have in the bag that mounts really nicely to a single tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It This system is very compact. I can attach it to my backpack with a tripod for easy deployment. You can't beat the quality and functionality for the price. Most system that do this much will cost sub 3K. The logic in the controller and the app is also very intuitive didn't take me long it grasp. I would recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds production value The Lynx has been a great tool and has added value to our film productions. We've used it in interviews, timelapse and for cinematic transitions. It really comes in handy when you need to support narration with visuals or if you need a little bit of filler to round out your spot.� The rig is lightweight, versatile and easy to set up which compliments those stressful moments when your trying to capture the rising or setting sun. Looking forward to seeing what they come out with next!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I get a lot of use out of this rig I've been using the Lynx for a few months now, and must say it's been really helpful. I'm not the most technical guy, but I'm an entrepreneur and I create content regularly for my companies and personal brand so the Lynx has really helped up my production value on different videos we create. Great tool to have.
