About

Smooth Tracking Shots

Set-and-Forget Hyperlapses

Dreamy Slow Motion

 Use the tools the Pros use! 

Hollywood Videographers don't record their subjects by hand…

It creates shaky footage that is unusable! They achieve buttery smooth, film-quality shots with sliders.

The best photographers don't create dramatic hyperlapses with a rubber band and tripod!

They use equipment that helps them capture their shot when the moment is right.


With all three slider rails setup, our trolley can travel up to 1.5 meters at adjustable speeds.

Our smart-stabilizing gimbal allows for two axes of rotation, up to 320 degrees each way.

You'll always be able to compose that perfect shot, from any location.

Need precision? Manually control with the Smartphone app.

The app comes with a variety of pre-programmed shots ready to use, or just program it using the app's real-time dual joysticks.  

You don't need a second mobile device to use ARRCAM

The app can work with a single phone which will control the slider positions using user created presets.

Manual Real-Time Control

From any second connected device using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or even LTE/3G cellular data!


Live Recording Preview

Directly from the phone’s camera to any second connected device, live Internet streaming.


Program Sequences Directly or Remotely

Program any shot using the recording phone or any second connected device.


Control Zoom, Flash, Two-Axes Rotation, and Travel

Not only can you control the movement and rotation of ARRCAM trolley remotely, you can also zoom with the camera!


Use the Front or Rear Camera

Either can be used at the touch of a button.


Choose from Multiple Recording Modes

Switch between various to give your shot the look you want.


Conserve Battery with Energy Saving Mode

Between shots, the ARRCAM trolley will enter into Energy Saving mode, to reduce battery drain.





Why did we choose to Open Source our software?

Great question! We are so glad you asked. There are a lot of good reasons to provide open access to the source code of our control software:

  • The ability to customize the code and use for private and commercial purposes (Except for using it with another device for commercial purposes)
  • We can add more functionality easily (added in subsequent versions of the software)
  • The ability to test alpha and beta versions and submit corrections
  • The ability to share your saved programs with other users
  • Access our source code on either platform, anytime.

The app can do much more than control the slider!

We're working on it to become a powerful tool that can satisfy many of the amateur photographers' needs! Also all Pro tier rewards will include a phone mount for the elastic tripods, which will help you get much more of the app and its timelapse, live preview and power saving options.

What makes ARRCAM so unique?

Here's a little comparison of our slider vs competitors' products:

We have been working together to create the best project with the best technology available. Each of us has a different background and professional experience, but we are all enthusiastic, full of passion and great in cooperation. The diversity and wide experience make our team perfect to achieve the goals that we (and you) set before us.


Many Kickstarter campaigns encounter problems during the prototype phase. This includes finding suppliers and engineering products for mass production. Smooth execution is absolutely necessary to overcome such risks. We take this seriously and have been working with reliable suppliers for a long time. We are testing the quality of components we use and we are building a team that can fulfill our promises as soon as we have the required resources.


Finding the right people is a challenge for any business. Success in such large tasks requires a group of talented, passionate and motivated designers, engineers and entrepreneurs. We have already created a great and extremely motivated team, but we will have to extend it when Kickstarter kicks off :) In fact, we already have a short list of candidates who are ready to step in at any time to make our dream come true.

Why did we decide to go for such a high goal?

  • We are realists and we know very well why so many campaigns fail even after successful funding.
  • We actually want to deliver our product and we've calculated thoroughly how much would it cost to do it for the given prices.
  • ARRCAM is a product aimed at amateurs and can't be sold at a price of professional gear - that's why we have to scale up on production to make the price this low.
  • One thing that's worse than not delivering the product is underdelivering - the goal not only secures the promises that we make about it's quality but also allows us to think about adding even more functions. 

Risks and challenges

Undoubtedly, the introduction of a device such as ARRCAM carries certain challenges and risks. However, thanks to our experience and responsibility, we are able to minimize these risks.
We have carried out very detailed research on technical and logistical possibilities before launching our project. We will do everything in our power to meet our obligations to lenders in a timely manner. That is why we do not promise unverified, imaginary things.

We are convinced that being honest and transparent with supporters at every turn is one of the key keys to success. We will do everything in our power to inform you of every step we take to fulfill your dreams and rewards.

Our team has experience in creating and launching new products in the electronics, mechanics and lighting industry, as can be read in our team description. A company based in the USA and a branch established in Europe will be responsible for the entire production process - partly doing it on its own, partly in cooperation with renowned companies. We will use American, European and Shenzhen components of the highest quality.

Due to the fact that by assembling ARRCAM:
a) we use commonly available components,
b) we work with the best plants in the region,
c) we produce parts on our own,
we can reduce the risk of overdue deliveries to a minimum.

The production of such a product is quite technologically complex, and mass production requires a very precise technological process. We have faced this challenge by preparing detailed production plans and our own methods for storing intermediate products, thanks to which we are able to minimize this risk as much as possible. The basis for proper organization of work is our team, which consists of the appropriate people responsible for all production stages.

Because the interest in our product can be worldwide, we have prepared a logistics process that guarantees proper shipping. The challenge for us is to create a separate department responsible only for logistics, which will depend on the number of supporters.

We are ready to produce either 2,000, 20,000 or more ARRCAM in a similar period of time. We have been cooperating with members of our production chain for years, so there will be no problem with fulfilling our obligations to supporters.
