In response to viewer questions, was asked to look for a small motorized slider while at NAB. iFootage makes the best one at the show in my opinion.
When I got to the iFootage booth at NAB to check everything out, I saw the new, yet to be released Nano slider, and I couldn't pay attention to anything else.
These guys are engineers, and they decide how to make things based on engineering awesomeness, not how to save a buck by using cheap plastic or less than working technology.
They also are fun, have a sense of humor, and are on my great people list along with Aputure, Deity, and Sound Devices to name a few.
The Nano Slider is completely silent, smooth, and doubles up both directions, with a clean, clear display, and can be powered via L-Ion, Cord, or other high powered batteries for all day shooting.
Watch the video to see all the features, and hopefully, they will kick this out soon, as I want one NOW! :) Suggested price is $499 available in August.
