Videomaker awards an NAB 2013 Spotlight Award to Edelkrone for the SliderPLUS.
The SliderPLUS is a compact and smooth slider that can fit your backpack. This isn't a typical slider though, the rails move with the camera creating a very smooth move, and taking full advantage of their length. The drag is adjustable and will have an option to be controlled by a motorized unit. The range of the slider is extended with the SliderPLUSXL version, so the final distances using a tripod are 1.7ft. for the SliderPLUS+ and 2.6ft. for the SliderPLUSXL. The materials are solid and use 3/8-inch mounts, and weigh in at 3.7lb. and 4.8lb. respectively. The folks at edelkrone ask for $500 for the SliderPLUS+ and $700 for the SliderPLUSXL.
