The Cinetics Lynx Motorized Slider Kit from B&H combines the Lynx Slider, Lynx Slider Motor, and Lynx Controller to allow for motion-controlled video capture and time-lapse photography. The Lynx Slider includes two sets of 24" carbon fiber rails and can be used in a 24" or 48" setup.
The Slider Motor supports up to 10 lb cameras, and operation is whisper-quiet thanks to a sound isolation design. The Lynx Controller lets you set up and trigger simple point A to point B motion or movements with multiple keyframes. The functions of the controller can also be accessed remotely via the included Lynx iOS and Android app. You can furthermore add the optional Lynx Pan & Tilt Motors at a future time for arcing motion.
Cinetics Lynx Slider
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.

Cinetics Lynx Controller
The Cinetics Lynx Controller is a three-axis motion controller that drives the Lynx Slider Motor and Pan & Tilt Motors.
It allows you to set up and trigger simple point A to point B motion, or movements with multiple keyframes, letting you achieve different runtimes, intervals, shutter speeds, and even bulb ramping. The user interface is easy to use, and you can also access it via the included Lynx iOS and Android app, allowing you to remotely control the slider.
The optional Lynx slider can be used for video capture, time-lapse photography, panoramas, and stop-motion animation, and the controller can be used to set up for all these scenarios.
The Lynx Controller features micro-controller and precision motor drivers as its backbone, and operates on a built-in lithium-ion battery that runs up to three hours in continuous use, or up to 24 hours in Power Save mode.

Cinetics Lynx Slider Motor
The Lynx Slider Motor from Cinetics attaches to the Lynx Slider in just seconds and converts it into a motorized one. The Lynx Controller is also required for programming and operating the motor. Via the controller, you can set up the motor to achieve standard video and time-lapse photography capture with different runtimes, intervals, shutter speeds, and even bulb ramping. The slider and controller are both sold separately.
The Slider Motor provides precision movement for up to 10 lb cameras, and is even capable of driving this weight vertically. Operation is whisper-quiet thanks to a sound isolation design, ensuring you can capture your shots without the motor noise.
