Time Lapse Support Equipment

Postby NNN637270078996333540 » Tue Aug 18, 2020 12:30 am

Hello Forum Folks.

Would anyone here be able to advise me on slider and motion control equipment that can handle the weight of an XF body & an SK Lens?

Specifically speaking, a motion controller that comfortably manage the vertical tilt of a 7lb (3.2kg) load and/or a slider that can slide vertically travel with the same load?

These won’t necessarily be used together, but that is obviously a desired functionality, as needed. I imagine that this conversation about equipment (capable of managing the loads mentioned above) quickly moves from piece-wise components and their compatibility to (modular?) single-source systems.

Is relatively convenient portability (say traveling with an XT & one prime) also something that is out of the question?

From what I saw from Syrp, their equipment was capable of handling 4.2 lbs or so. That was just enough for a crop MILC and a wide-angle prime lens. Definitely not solid enough for an XF & an SK combo (not to mention cabling & filters).

I’ll check the link you shared to see if I overlooked something from my previous view of their site.

Okay.
I’ve seen this video. Vertical tilt is the critical part of my inquiry. This footage only had the camera moving in one horizontal axis; I’m looking for 3-axis (& 4axis) movement ability. All I have, so far, is the following

    eMotimo: Their pan/tilt module seems physically limiting, for a lack of a better way to say it.
    Dynamic Perception: There drive motors boasts good numbers
I hoping someone in this forum has experience with those or other solutions that they can speak to.

Have you found a good solution yet?

Nothing yet.
Reiterating my interest, I'm working to avoid larger and bulkier equipment, within means. That is why typical video equipment solutions are not hitting it on the head. The portability component always breaks down when referencing the slider equipment in any conversation.

Kessler seems to have various options for sliders, I'm awaiting confirmation on the inter-compatibility with the various motion control components, specifically when heavier equipment is being used.

I'll make some headway when their rep(s) decide to get back to me. They have their place, I was hoping to complement their input with users for this space.

Look into Ditogear. I used an Omnislider Evolution 4-axis kit and it has no problem with that load. The servos are very powerful.
