Cinetics Lynx Motorized Camera Slider Overview

The Cinetics Lynx Slider includes two sets of 24" carbon fiber rails and can be used in a 24" or 48" setup. The rails seamlessly screw into one another. The payload is 11 lb at either length.

The Lynx is a belt-driven system and features precision ball bearing wheels that provide for smooth motion. It has integrated folding legs with index marks that let you balance the two sides of the slider more easily, and the feet are cone-shaped at the ends to allow for all-terrain use.

The slider carriage offers a 3/8"-16 screw for attaching your camera via a ball head or tripod head, and there are five 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes along the bottom for mounting the slider onto a tripod or two tripods.

The Lynx is also upgradeable with the optional Lynx slider motor, controller, and pan and tilt motors for motion-controlled operation.

question

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

question

It says at the bottom of the overview: Note: The Lynx Slider and Lynx Controller, sold separately, are required.Yet it says:PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTSLynx SliderLynx Slider Motor (10 lb Camera Support)Lynx ControllerTwo Sets of 24 Carbon Fiber RailsSo do you need to purchase another Lynx Controller??? Not following. Or is this just a Typo.Final question. When I want to upgrade to include Pan and Tilt, do all I need to purchase is: Cinetics Lynx Pan & Tilt Motors without the controller.

B&H # CILMRSLK is a kit that includes the Cinetics Lynx Slider, Lynx Controller and Lynx Slider Motor. They are included in this kit. However the Cinetics Lynx Pan & Tilt Motors is an additional purchase, B&H # CILPT.https://bhpho.to/2CqoTMm

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

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

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.

I have read that there is a "bump" when transitioning between the extension rods. Is this still an issue? Does everyone take care of this in post?
Asked by: Jorge
Yes, this is still an issue. I returned mine mainly for this reason, as well as other smoothness issues with the motors themselves. This really can't be fixed well in post, especially if you're using a lighter small camera, like a mirrorless one. This is because the sensor physically is getting moved quickly and can distort the image past repair.
