Photographers looking for a way to transform their camera slider into a motorised camera slider may be interested in TurnsPro, developed by photographer and developer Louis Le Poidevin based in the United Kingdom. This week the TurnsPro motorised camera slider module has launched via Kickstarter with the aim of raising the required funds it needs to make the jump into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the design and features TurnsPro can offer photographers to add extra creativity to their photographs.
“This kit allows you to motorise most common sliders. The Slider Edition TurnsPro acts as the slider motor and the timing belt attaches to the slider carriage to smoothly move the camera along the slider. The TurnsPro: Slider Edition has the following features: The TurnsPro : Slider Edition, will provide 10 hours of movement on 4 x AA batteries. It can be programmed to move the length of any slider in a single movement, or it can go back and forth along the slider, something the original TurnsPro was not capable of doing. This is very useful for videographers who want to set up a camera and leave it running back and forth, whilst they get on with more filming. It can move your camera (up to 3 Kg) when setup on the slider, at speeds which are fast enough for real time (for videography) or for timelapse. You could even experiment with different size pulleys to increase the speed further. With the supplied pulley, it will move up to a maximum speed of 10cm in 16.2 seconds.”
The camera slider motor kit is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from £60 and worldwide delivery expected to take place during August 2018.
