Edelkrone Slider Plus Pro with Action Module Review
One of the tips that I never forgot when learning about video production was that to make the shot more interesting, make sure your subject is moving or if its not, make sure your shot has motion. Over the last few years, one method that has made it to the mainstream in video production is the use of the dolly. Dollies have been used for decades in filmmaking but because of size and budget, that’s essentially where they stayed. That’s where the slider comes in and nowadays, there is no shortage when selecting a slider. You can have something as simple as a friction rail to a complex ball bearing setup with a motor.
As someone that travels frequently on planes to locations all over the world, I was on the quest to not only find a slider that was smooth but it had to be able to be approved for my carry on luggage for a nice tight travel package. That’s where the Edlekrone Slider Plus Pro comes in and for a bonus, there’s a motion control module called the Action Module that is so simple to use and it also fits into my carry on. It might not be the best slider out there as I own q few other brands as well but I have no doubt that its the best in terms of design, simplicity, and portability.

Final Thoughts | Edelkrone Slider Plus Pro with Action Module – In Depth Review
Excellent - Highly Recommended
This slider and motion control unit has literally travelled a few hundred thousand miles with me from the Sierra Nevada Mountains ion Spain to the Great Wall of China. People are still amazed when they see the unit in action but the best thing, it all fits in my carry on. There are a few minor things that some may need to workaround but for most, it’ll handle whatever you throw at it and for the ultimate in motion tracking, you can add the target module.
