Hello all,
Looking to sell a ServoCity Electronic Camera Slider. I've had this for a few years, but haven't really used it more than a handful of times around the house and at work (probably 10 times or less). This slider is about 2' long and is extendable with different parts from ServoCity. This package includes an adjustable speed controller with both forward and reverse as well as a rechargeable battery pack to power the unit. You can use a DC plug to power the unit as well (not included, but available lots of places online). The battery pack has a hard switch on it so you can stop the slider precisely by just flipping the switch.

Slides are smooth and it can support a DSLR and small lens easily (I've used it with a 70D and 80D as well as a Sony RX100). I probably wouldn't mount an 80D with a 70-200 f/2.8 on it, but anything up to, say, a 100mm macro should be just fine. I've mostly used it with the 24mm f/2.8 STM on a Canon crop body and it has performed admirably.

I'm asking $145 shipped anywhere in the US OBO. No trades.

The intros to the following two videos were shot with this slider so you can see the motion. Photos below! Please PM with questions or offers.

Thanks,
Matthew

BUMP!

I did a little testing per another member's request and this slider will handle a Canon 80D + 70-200 f/2.8L (I have the non-stabilized version) with the lens mounted to the slider using the lens collar (just like you would on a tripod since it's way too front heavy to mount otherwise). It's slower than with, say, the 80D and a 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake, but I ran it for a few minutes and the motor never got hot. The belt on this has "teeth" so there's no slipping. This is probably the max load I'd put on this and I wouldn't run it this way for hours and hours back and forth. But for a time-lapse or something, I think it could be kinda cool.

I guess I don't understand what you would even use this for.....other than panning video. Is that it?


Remember what the DorMouse said.....feed your head.

It would also be useful for timelapses, but this would take some tinkering as it’s probably not an out of the box solution

Slider shots for video, yes. Also for time lapse as you can set the motor to move extremely slowly. It’s just a good way to get smooth, consistent motion with no jerking. Also, because it’s a smooth dial, you can ramp up and back down so you get extremely smooth starts and stops.

Correct except there’s no modification needed since you can step the motor way down and use it very slowly.

For most timelapse, yes, but I prefer a move-shoot-move for astro.
