About

A unique camera motion system

In recent years, it is increasingly frequent to find motion control systems that give you precise motorized control of your DSLR camera moves to achieve stunning time-lapses and producing smooth motion scenes.

However, these systems are usually bulky, complex and, if you want to buy one, you need to spend thousands of dollars.

Regarding this, our aim was to develop one solution that could fix all these problems. That is what we have called Ápodo Slider & Dolly.

Reviews

Slider & Dolly is the perfect solution for people who need a versatile, programmable and portable slider that fits in a backpack. This premium two-in-one product offers all the benefits of a motorized slider, with the best of a motorized dolly.

We know that every customer has different needs. Thus, you can start just with the dolly and, later, incorporate add-ons to make it the most complete Ápodo. 

The control system

During our market research, we discovered that people were looking for a simple control. For that reason, we have developed an intuitive real-time programming and control system which allow you to work in 5 different modes: Manual Mode, Automatic Mode, Time-lapse Mode, Stop-motion Mode and Multipoint Mode.

Manual Mode offers the possibility to control in real time the speed of the Slider & Dolly, in a range of 40 different speeds.

Set initial and ending points of the motion desired, speed, acceleration ramp percentage and if you want to repeat it in loop. It's that easy to use the Automatic Mode.

In Timelapse Mode, we’ve included shoot-move-shoot method, that means that the camera only moves between exposures and stands still during a shoot. You’ll have to set the movement, the final clip time/nº frames, interval and exposure time. With the trigger port the slider can control directly your camera shots.

In addition there is an advanced mode of control of exposure ramps for day / night or night / day timelapse.

In Stop-Motion Mode you will control each shoot. This will let you to physically manipulate the objects between shots and create the illusion of movement.

On the other hand, our control system has an advanced mode that allows you to preprogram movements controlling the time it will take to move between different points.

The motorized dolly

It is our main component. Our motorized dolly gives you precise control of your camera moves due to the high accuracy stepper motor. Another great feature when using the dolly is that your movement is not limited by the length of your slider or track; you only need a flat surface to move your camera freely. All this, added to the easy transport, makes the dolly the perfect ally for every filmmaker.

In addition, there are two possibilities of movement thanks to its rotating axes.

The Portable Slide System

Portable Slide System is the part of Ápodo Slider & Dolly in which we spent more hours developing. The main elements are precision machined from solid aluminum and stainless steel, bead blasted to a perfect matte finish, and then anodized with a durable black coating.

Due to our research, we detected that all these systems are usually bulky. Therefore, we have created a new revolutionary solution: a portable slider.

Ápodo Slider & Dolly is the most complete solution. You can enjoy being able to travel with this motorized slider that fits in a backpack and support it precisely on any surface or on tripods thanks to its different points of support.

The custom Slide System

The great advantage of our dolly is that it will allow you to use a custom-made rail system longer than any other slider. On our website you can order the custom guide system of the length you want up to 3m.
