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 lifts, 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 24" length is ideal for video and time-lapse photography usage. The extended 48" length excels at time-lapse, but can also be used for video work with careful attention to the seam between rails. The extension rails are conveniently stored in the back of the slider case.

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 lifts, 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 24" length is ideal for video and time-lapse photography usage. The extended 48" length excels at time-lapse, but can also be used for video work with careful attention to the seam between rails. The extension rails are conveniently stored in the back of the slider case.

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.

    could i record the movements between two points ...

    could i record the movements between two points (linear, pan, tilt, zoom, focus) and then re-produce that later in next shots?
    Asked by: Ramy
    Yes, for the 3 axis of Pan, Tilt and Tracking that this offers you are able to reproduce movements.

    question

    Does this slider have a option for a one man team conducting interviews?
    Asked by: Robert R.
    Hi there, Lynx has some great features for conducting interviews. You can use the bounce setting to run a move back and forth until you stop it. And you can set up a move that stays aimed at the subject for a parallax effect. And you can save your interview program, so it is easy to repeat. The motors are designed to be very quiet also. There is a great example here: https://youtu.be/kxfi3VS8Vzg?t=3m1s

    question

    It lists speeds, i understand these are maximum. but what are minimums? I know some sliders that are simply too fast for my work. what is the minimum for time lapse? also, minimum for time lapse panning? Thank you.
    Asked by: Derek
    Hi there, Lynx excels at slow speeds. It can do a shoot-move-shoot style move that make it extremely slow, like move 1mm every hour. It can also make continuous moves very slowly, slower than 100mm per hour. I think when you get down towards 20mm per hour accuracy begins to be effected and shoot-move-shoot is a better option.

    question

    Does this come with the motor or do you have to buy it separately? Also, how is it powered???
    Asked by: Rhonda T.
    The kit comes with 3 motors ready to work and they're powered from the 1 unit (the control unit)

    question

    Can it do paralax motion shots for interview like the OneManCrew from redmicro? Thank you very much
    Asked by: Michal
    The Lynx can make parallax moves, like Jesse mentioned. There is also a preset 'Interview' setting that does this with minimal setup.

    question

    Can this be used with Canon c200?
    Asked by: Kristie S.
    Hi there, you can use a camera up to 10 lbs to slide horizontally, and up to 5 lbs to slide vertically. A C200 set up to be as light as possible would work for many shots, but we always recommend the smallest camera you can get away with for motion control shots.From a product review by Videomaker, when we attached the Canon C300 MKII, a camera that is above recommended weight, the motors pan, tilted and slid with ease <a href= https://www.videomaker.com/article/r02/19045-review-cinetics-lynx-motion-controlled-slider-offers-simple-motion-control-solution target= _blank >https://www.videomaker.com/article/r02/19045-review-cinetics-lynx-motion-controlled-slider-offers-simple-motion-control-solution</a>Thanks for the questions!

    question

    Will it work with Sony FS72?
    Asked by: Howard C.
    I think the FS7 would work better with the 1 Axis Lynx Slider than this 3 Axis kit. It could do some shots well; a horizontal slide for example. But you would want it set up very lightly... small lens, no accessories, and it could struggle with vertical slides. The Lynx kit is more versatile with a smaller camera, like Sony's A7 series.
