A few days ago we headed for a short trip to test out the first prototype of the DitoGear PortaSlider which is a new, modular timelapse slider dedicated to entry-level an professional timelapse shooters.
We wanted to check how the concepts worked and gave a hard-testing run to the new product. With a total of 14 one-meter track units and 2 trolley designs to test out we had a lot of fun! This is probably the longest timelapse slider track ever built! The track joints seem to work flawlessly and really precisely even on such long track. The trolley need some refinements and this week we’re going to test out a new, improved design.
Preparing for shots with a 14 meter track takes some time, but it is definitely worth effort giving a whole bunch of new creative shooting possibilities.
