Innovative Turkish manufacturer Edelkrone recently released a new, professional version of its successful SliderPLUS camera slider which can travel twice it’s own length. The new version can carry significantly more weight and has a new top plate for larger cameras (hence the “PRO” in the name).
Larger payloads – SliderPlus PRO
The new SliderPLUS PRO comes in 3 different sizes: Medium, Large and XLarge versions with respective camera travel of 50cm (1.6ft) and 14kg 22lb weight capacity, 70cm (2.3ft) and 12kg 26lb weight capacity and 90cm (2.9ft) with a 10kg 30lb weight capacity.

The SliderPLUS PRO both trays are adjustable so you have maximum control over the minimal play on the rails.
As for prices (the product should be available in a few weeks from the Edelkrone web store):
- Slider Plus Pro Medium: $799.
- Slider Plus Pro Large: $899.
- Slider Pro Plus Extra Large: $999.
Edelkrone also has a few extra accessories which are no less interesting than the slider itself and fit the SliderPlus and SliderPlus PRO including a Target Module for tracking a subject while you move your camera on a slider (not an easy task – ask anybody who tried to do this smoothly) and a Wizard Motion Controller which is essentially a smart motor with some very interesting features.
