    They are always so innovative.

    Slider that fits in your freakin' pocket. Imagine this...a pocket cam and a mavic. Full production that fits in a small ass bag.

    ps...I haven't looked on the prices as yet LOL.

    All those youtubers bitching about the price...they clearly don't see the value in innovation, research and time that went into this . Try putting a slider that can hold 15lbs in your pocket -_- .This is hella convenient and no one else offers it. SO many cheap sliders out there....they should just get those instead and stop bitching.

    Yeah watching the video and reading your comment about price, my mind went to "Oh it's probably at least a grand, then." I was happily surprised to see the most expensive version is only $650.

    $650 really doesn't get you a whole lot in this industry: two V mounts maybe, an average stills photography lens, half of a decent camera, a mere fraction of a great one.

    That's a really cool idea, surprised no one actually came up with that yet. But I wonder what is the actual travel distance of the slide? Very cool for folks traveling and making projects...but for me I'll just throw the dana dolly in a pelican case, and visit whatever home depot is nearby my out of town shoot for some cheap conduit instead!

    AGREED!

    Edelkrone has REALLY been getting my attention lately.

    I was planning on getting the new DUZI with the built-in flywheel.... but after seeing this little pocket slider, I'm wondering if it would perhaps get MORE use?

    I can see the use, but I prefer sliders with flywheels and motorized options. I just don't see myself using this at all. There's another slider like this, but I forgot the name of it.

    Edelkrone also makes a more traditiona slider (horizontal rails), but it can extend with a traveling rail system, which about doubles the csmera travel.
    Cheers

    I think most of Edelkrone's products are more clever than truly useful. It's like "hey we found another way to slice bread" not necessarily a better way. I've got to admit though, this one looks pretty slick.

    There are various models, with the top one traveling 2.9 feet.
