Try pulling focus by hand on a telephoto or macro lens while your camera is moving on a slider. This is where LensDrive becomes your life-saver. It is extremely precise, powerful, reliable and silent. No need to mention how sleek the design is and how well it integrates in the family of DitoGear™ products.
I love it!
The OmniHead is a piece of art. Now with the more powerful motors it is a beast! I think it is a must-have for every serious DitoGear™ user.
I became interested in DitoGear’s Motion Control Kits for real-time and high-speed shooting rather than timelapse which a lot of people use it for. Being able to do multiple takes, that are precisely the same every time is not only useful for vfx shots, but also for complex scenes, that need to be rehearsed to perfection. Once set up you can trust DitoGear products to perform exactly the same move twice or a thousand times.
The OmniController is a sturdy, complex and yet simple to use tool. I like it very much and use it for real-time moves, as well as for programming.
It´s such a versatile product, and i tend to use it on almost any of my shootings. We use it as a dolly substitute in smaller locations, as Motion Control unit for packshots, tabletop stuff and of course for timelapse shooting.
It´s easy to setup even at 4:00 in the morning in complete darkness without any coffee :)
I'm looking forward to extend our equipment with the OmniHead and Evolution Control.
OmniSlider was a lifesaver in our shooting. We could do very fast setups and it even gave us new ideas on the set on how to use it for different effects.
Life has become so much easier now: we are not sitting on the floor trucking a camera along, lining it up to the roughly penciled measurements and hoping our maths matches our expectations...
I was always a big fan of skater style dollies, especially for food shots and pack shots it offered countless possibilities, to enhance the product and bring life to it.
This whole concept was taken one step further with the Modulo Rover Dolly, if it´s used on a flat surface you can even do multi-pass VFX shots with it within a very short setup time and without the hassle of setting up and programming a ton of equipment.
DitoGear™ products are really well built and performs just as you are promised they would. I’ve used OmniSlider and OmniHead in many productions and will do so definitely in the future too.
They really give us totally new ways to carry out our artistic visions. It´s a perfect tool for all motion picture artists, who wants to spice up their productions.
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider has allowed us to take our timelapses to a whole other level! The fluidity and beauty of the motion is wonderful! Evolution allows us a new kind of freedom using the OmniSlider, and we look forward to any new developments with DitoGear™.
Moving up from my entry level MOCO device to the OmniSlider Servo has been a huge leap in ease of use, functionality, accuracy and build quality. I’m using it in my classes and it’s holding up very nicely to the rigors of inexperienced student use. We have found its controller logical, well thought out and easy to master. Great system, looking forward to seeing where they take it next.
The OmniSlider has really helped me this year to catch new and very interesting timelapse on the Aurora Borealis. I work on a new Aurora film right now and it just looks great. I have been working in temperatures down to -30 degrees C. Might be the limit for the equipment but it has been working well.
You need to trust the equipment when you spend night after night to catch the very best Aurora sequences.
The LensDrive is a very compact, sleek, reliable and silent focus/zoom control unit. I consider it as a must-have for everybody who owns a 3-axis motion control rig.
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider offers high production value for a low investment. Tracking, craning and job shots are all possible with this fantastic piece of kit. It's hard wearing and well built and I expect many years of active service while putting it through the harshest of environments.
Motion control is now within reach of many people with the DitoGear™ OmniHead. Coupled with the Evolution, complex moves can be recorded and played back time after time. It's well built yet lightweight and is an essential part of my shooting kit.
I am very pleased with the DitoGear™ OmniSlider for motion-controlled time-lapses. The rail is a tank and the case keeps it quite safe. I have placed it inside my ski bag for flying which helps with checking, as there are no funny looks or questions! The slider has also been up to 11.000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the back of a mule, and made it.
DitoGear™ has consistently surpassed my expectations with their support, quality, and attention to detail. The OmniSlider, specifically, is well-built and extremely precise. Everything is intuitive, built for filmmakers by filmmakers. I couldn’t be happier with their products!
Solidly built slider with optimal price-performance ratio and competent reliable service.
This really is a great product in terms of quality and price. Relatively simple to set up and use. We rent this out regularly and I expect it to last for a very long time as the build quality is first class.
I really love my DitoGear™ OmniSlider, the finished product is like army grade! Indestructible. The user experience is fantastic, super easy and super powerful. DitoGear™ is a young company with great ideas. Super friendly people full of talent.
We have used other sliders, but the first time we worked with DitoGear™ OmniSlider it was different, robust material! Reliability, good construction, a wide range of possibilities, incredible precision… It's perfect support for our creativity.
Précis, efficace et beau à regarder, l’Omnislider est un jouet vraiment extraordinaire, un coup de maître!!!
Hey I really like the DitoGear™ OmniSlider, bit of a steep curve to work out how to use it at first but just gets better each time as you get used to it. Keep thinking of new shots I can do with it.
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider is a great affordable solution to take your time-lapse photography to the next level!
DitoGear™ are an inspiring new company that have enabled me to step up my production to the next level. The OmniSlider, once rigged, is an awesome film making tool!
DitoGear™ OmniSlider is a great product and always reliable: makes exactly what it's built for. The product works with high precision and ensures very good results.
A really nice slider. I'm using it on all of my productions, from big to low budget videos. Thanks to this product I have new, greater possibilities for my productions.
Have you ever fallen in love with a nice piece of elegant metal and some electronics? Well, I have. She is called DitoGear™ OmniSlider!
We use a 1.5m version for shooting a wildlife film in the Florida Everglades. We have chosen it after a long evaluating process. The priority was to have a multipurpose tool for DSLR timelapse and also for real-time video with a Red Epic. Total and very precise repeatability was also a must as we film over several seasons. And the OmniSlider works just fine, we love it!
The OmniSlider is a product that is well build. Operation is amazingly simple. I use the slider both for real-time video and timelapse. The OmniSlider excels in both ways.
I would definitely recommend to get the case too.
Great for video in motion and excellent for timelapses.
I’ve found the OmniSlider and OmniHead to be fast enough for high-speed shots where moving the camera can add magic to the already exciting slow motion footage.
Together with Evolution it is a great motion control kit for all kinds of shooting scenarios.
We used the 2m OmniSlider during a one week shoot in Stockholm for a stop motion commercial with paper cut outs. During the shoot, we sometimes had to go back in the tracking motions something like 30 takes to correct something, and we could easily back-track our motion to match the frames thanks to the precision of the OmniSlider. It was a joy to work with the OmniSlider and it's already out on it's second mission, shooting an identity for a major swedish channel.
I use the OmniHead for timelapse but also for shooting real time.
The reason why I have chosen for DitoGear™ is for the combination of build quality and it's almost self-explaining OmniController.
I have to admit, however, that if you plan to use the OmniHead for real-time work often, I would recommend getting the DitoGear™ Trito or maybe the DitoGear™ Evolution interface.
Downside is that you have so much mount possibilities for your camera, you will need to take some time to get the right gear for your needs.
The OmniController is a fail-safe choice for time continuous shots. No big programming hassle, just plain and simple control over your device.
I've been shooting timelapse for over 10 years, starting on 16mm film. The DitoGear™ range is everything I've dreamed of to make my shots more dynamic and fluid and it's exceptionally well made by fellow professionals, who are always willing to help.
The OmniController is a well thought out controller for just about all axis of DitoGear™.
It's easy to use, and can be mastered within minutes.
During a live recording session of a band at the local television station, I could explain and handover the OmniControllers to a 15 y/o volunteer within minutes.
The controller is made to fit in your hand.
