Don’t work around your equipment to get the shots you need.
Let the Matthews FloatCam DC Sliders work for you.
The counterbalance system of The Matthews FloatCam DC Slider and the FloatCam Heavy Duty DC Slider combines with the variable fulcrum and a painless motion lock adjustment to let you move or place your camera at any angle and any height that your chosen tripod can accommodate. Lock your camera at the horizontal on its mount way up on a 80° rail to get into a tight environmental frame, or tilt your camera on its mount for some added tension when swinging the rail as a mini-jib. No matter the shot, the DC Sliders will never get in the way of your imagination.
Flip the rail on its head to get your camera from ground level to overhead in a single steady sweep with the Matthews FloatCam DC Slider and Heavy Duty DC Slider tower functionality. A quick adjustment to the fulcrum turns the 63″ rail exactly vertical, and the counterbalance system helps you keep a steady and even slide from top to bottom or vice versa. Extend your tripod’s legs and place your camera at the top of the rail to get way up there, and leave the aerial work platform in the parking lot.
The FloatCam DC Slider Motion Control System takes the already insanely versatile DC Slider line and multiplies its versatility in new and exciting ways. Movement along the rail can be programmed, or manipulated manually via the jog box, opening up the functionality for cinematographers and photographers alike. Not only can you automate the movement of the camera in tracking shots at any angle, but the slider can now be used for time lapse and stop-motion via intelligent connectivity with Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras and the camera control cable which comes with the rental, allowing you to program the speed of both the motor and your shutter to your liking, and let them run in tandem for precision shots.
The FloatCam DC Slider Motion Control System is available to rent for both sliders.
