The World's First Fully Automated Digital Slider For Your Smartphone, GoPro & Mirrorless Camera.

InMotion gives you amazing features and smart functions for blockbuster quality videos.

Video mode ramp helps you achieve amazing ease-in ease-out movement, so you get no wasted footage. 

Want to use your favourite gimbal with the slider? Simply mount the gimbal, set up the movement and press “Loop” on your slider. 

Then connect your smartphone and choose “object tracking” on the gimbal for a great combo done by your very own automated cameraman! 

Not ready to change your app habits? No problem! 

Swap from the InMotion app to the app you want. Just set up the slider, press “Loop” and switch between apps. 

Now you can keep creating awesome content because InMotion works straight out of the box and has you covered in any scenario!

InMotion automatically tracks your face and keeps you in focus while you move around freely. 

It rotates and slides at the same time so you can set it once and let it work its magic. 

Finally focus 100% on your content. 

The best thing is, now you can use your smartphone’s rear-view (4K) camera and get higher quality footage right away.

It’s your personal motorised cameraman that will never ask for a pay rise or miss a recording session.

Set up a wireless trigger for subjects up to 30ft (10m) away. 

When activated, InMotion uses IR beams to automatically start and stop the recording immediately or with a pre-set delay for smoother transitions. 

Want to stop your recording at a specific time? 

Set the InMotion app to automatically stop recording, without having to pass through the IR beams again. 

Now you can finally capture your action footage without anybody else’s assistance. 

Ready to take it one step further? 

Use the Slow-Motion feature to review your results so you can continue to improve your skills and become a legend in your field.

Perfect for content creators looking to animate still objects. 

It allows you the freedom to “tell” the slider when it can take a new picture and move to the next position. 

Take as much time as you need to prepare for your next shot and create stop-motion animations that turn boring scenarios into engaging stories.

Film more engaging interviews where you’re asking the right questions instead of focusing on the camera setup. 

One of the many available looped sequences ensures your slider stops in preselected positions with very gentle movement in between.

Your entire interview can now be recorded as one master shot. 

The seamless transitions combined with parallax shots will take your interviews to the next level, creating a dynamic setting during every session.

Livestream your perfectly-framed content directly to your social media channels or easily embed it onto your website.

InMotion creates amazing time lapses in scenarios where regular smartphone footage would be grainy and very noisy. 

It moves, gently slows to a complete stop, takes a picture, then moves to the next point, so the overall time lapse quality will be silky-smooth. 

InMotion is the only device in the world to offer cloud RAW-Rendering dedicated for time lapses for your smartphone. 

So the time lapse pictures can be rendered on the device or uploaded to the InMotion Cloud for RAW color grading and rendering. 

Because it takes pictures instead of videos, each separate frame enjoys much longer exposure times. 

As a result, frames don’t need to be brightened using quality-lowering digital algorithms that also introduce noise to the picture. 

And thanks to the orbit mount, you can also create amazing panoramic/parallax time lapses.

Add a wow factor to your videos using parallax shots. 

Simply attach your device to the orbit mount, place your subject 27in (70 cm) away from the lens and watch as the gearing mechanism creates amazing parallax shots for you. 

Thanks to the InMotion parallax technique, you no longer need an additional rotating panoramic head.

The pan and slide movement gives you an amazing 36° extra field of view, compared to regular sliders. 

When using the stationary adapter, you can create stunning 360° panoramic pictures even in low-light conditions.

When designing InMotion, we didn’t want to make another “remote bluetooth” app that will only move the slider right or left. 

We wanted to push the boundaries of smartphone-slider integration. 

So we chose a Mobile First approach. 

InMotion is the only slider in the world that uses most of your smartphone capabilities, not just its camera. 

This is why the InMotion app is so much more than just a bluetooth remote for the slider. 

In a nutshell, the InMotion app is your user-friendly control centre for all the amazing features of your InMotion slider.

InMotion is the only device in the world to offer cloud color grading for your smartphone. 

When processing time lapse footage, all RAW images are uploaded to the InMotion cloud and grouped as a series of DNG files before your favourite presets are applied to each picture. 

Enhancing things like shadows, clarity, exposure, white balance, saturation or vibrance, the app turns your images into smaller sized JPEG files, then renders it all into one mp4 file with unreal HDR timelapse. 

If uploading a regular movie to the cloud, you can adjust things like saturation, contrast, gamma, vibrance or white balance.

Shooting loads of content on a daily basis? 

Upload your pictures and videos to the InMotion cloud and never worry about running out of storage space for your valuable footage. 

If working as part of a team, create a shared account for your entire team and start editing way before camera operators get back to your Headquarters.   

Attaching the slider to a tripod mount is an absolute breeze and gives you perfect stability as you go about creating your content.

The three ¼” threaded mounts make it easy to attach multiple accessories to your slider. 

Use the centre rail mount for your tripod or the leg support mounts for additional accessories. 

Think a mic, magic arms, lights or a recorder. 

When attaching your smartphone to the slider mount, enjoy classic slider movements while being able to add other accessories for superior sound and light effects. 

The slider mount is located next to the orbit mount and it’s perfect for additional batteries, action cameras and any other advanced equipment you wish to use.

The builtin battery has enough juice to power your slider for up to 6 hours. 

Need to charge your smartphone using the fast-charging USB port? 

The battery can still power your slider for 2.5 uninterrupted hours while giving you 2 charge cycles for your devices.

Our awesome accessories make the InMotion slider the ultimate filmmaking tool for you, whatever your experience level.     

The hard case features a carrying handle and inside padding to keep your slider safe, no matter where your filmmaking adventures take you. 

*purchase as part of the fully loaded package or individually as an add-on.
      

The external battery is lightweight and safe to bring along on your travels. 

With up to 6 hours of uninterrupted power, it gives you the extra juice you need to complete your mission.

*purchase as part of the fully loaded package or individually as an add-on.

Combine two 15” rails to extend the slider to 30” for additional range of movement. Because sometimes size does matter.

*purchase as part of the fully loaded package or individually as an add-on.

The rotating platform enables you to shoot compelling 360° videos without spending extra budget for an external turntable.

Thanks to all the accessories and features packed into your InMotion slider, you can only imagine all the amazing 360° timelapse or product videos you’ll be able to create!

When activated, the 2 gates use IR beams to automatically start and stop the recording immediately or with a pre-set delay for smoother transitions.

Risks and challenges

InMotion is not a novice when it comes to designing and creating camera sliders. A mechatronic design student at the time, Slawek (InMotion Founder) started designing sliders for pro cameras approximately 4 years ago.

His first fully fledged slider was a part-time project. With little funding, Slawek created 6 iterations that helped him perfect the design, later making the smartphone slider design a walk in the park.

Up to date, the InMotion team has made 2 smartphone slider iterations, 3 electronics iterations and 2 mobile app iterations for iOS and Android smartphones.

The project is driven by 10 people who have a wide variety of skills ranging from mechanical design, mass manufacturing, electronic design, embedded software development, mobile development, graphic design and business development.

At this stage, we only need our minimum listed goal to fire the machines and bring InMotion to life.

And this is where you - our valued backers - come in. Mass production efficiency is a numbers’ game, which means that the higher the number of orders, the quicker we can start and scale production and optimise logistics.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations without compromising on the given timelines and the quality of the product.

We will maintain full transparency through all the campaign and production stages so you are always up to date with our progress.

Only together we can bring InMotion to life and cinematic camera movement at everybody’s fingertips!

If you love InMotion or simply take pleasure in seeing the entrepreneurial spirit flourish, please back our campaign today!
