Cinetics Lynx 3-Axis Motorized Slider
Key Features
  • Three-Axis Motorized Slider
  • 11-Pound Horizontal Load Capacity
  • 5-Pound Vertical Load Capacity
  • Video, Time-Lapse, and Stop-Motion Modes
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 it 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 it 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 the lens 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 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 and 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.
Materials
  • Carbon Fiber, Aircraft Aluminum, and Stainless Steel.
  • Range of Motion
  • 18.8" of sliding range with 24" base rails.
  • 42.8" of sliding range at full 48" length.
  • 360° pan and tilt.

    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.

    Does this unit allow slave mode with advanced external intervalometers using an AUX Cable?
    Asked by: Pablo
    The Cinetics Lynx 3 Axis Motorized Slider has it's own control system which can use a Cinetics CineMoco Shutter-Release (https://bhpho.to/3Kfblb0) for select cameras, in order to trigger shutter commands. Cinetics recommends using the Cinetics Lynx Controller to control these commands.

    Should i purchase one Cinetics 32" Slider Extension (BH #CIASE MFR #ASE) with one Cinetics 64" Belt for Axis360 Pro Slider (BH #CIA64 MFR #A64) to extend the length?
    Asked by: Feroze
    Yes I use mine with the extension all the time the only thing I have noticed is sometimes you will see a slight bump when the slider goes over the joint but you really have to be looking for it

    Is this slider compatible with with Dragonframe animation software?

    The Cinetics Lynx has both time lapse and stop-motion modes, which would work with a Dragonframe compatible camera, such as a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. https://www.dragonframe.com/camera-support/

    does it Including Extension or should to buy sepratley? which cable is suitable for panasonic bgh1?
    Asked by: Sohrab
    The Cinetics Lynx slider does not come with a shutter release cable, though there are various cables we carry for compatible cameras. Under the accessories: Cable Adapters, we list the available options. Unfortunately Cinetics does not list compatibility for a shutter release for the Panasonic BGH1.
