Floatcam DC Slider distributed by Matthews...a Unique Precision Counterbalanced, Multifunctional Camera PlatformPN 377718
Matthews Studio Equipment has announced the exclusive distributorship in the Americas of a unique concept in camera support...The DC-Slider manufactured by FloatCam; a multifunctional camera platform that offers many creative possibilities to camera operators.
By combining an unusually long variable-angled camera slider track with mini-jib functionality, the DC-Slider is truly remarkable displaying both state-of-the-art technology and precision engineering.
Additionally, the DC-Slider quickly transforms into a vertical 6-foot tower. In this configuration the DC-Slider's counterbalancing feature ensures precision camera moves are smooth and steady.
And that's what makes it so unique!
|ANGLES: The DC-Slider allows a wide rance of variable angle operations. No matter how acute the angle, the counterbalance system will assure steady and stable camera movements. A simple, positive-locking adjustment feature allows for camera placement at the exact vertical or off-axis position for creative imaging. Minimum and maximum heights of the DC-Slider in the multi-angled positions are dependent on the height of the tripod.|
|MINI-JIB: In the Mini-Jib mode, the DC-Slider operates a working diameter of 63" (160cm) on the horizontal. The counterbalance system is locked to ensure unvarying movements through the full-range of the hib arm's capabilities. An easy adjustment of the parallelogram bar will allow the camera to stay locked on to a subject through the rance of the jib arm's vertical travel rather than staying in a fixed attitude. The maximum and minimum operating heights of the Mini-jib function are dependent on the height of the tripod.|
|TOWER: With the simple removal and repositioning of two handles, the DC-Slider becomes a tower allowing for an exact vertical camera move through the full rance of the 63" (160cm) track. Minimum and maximum heights of the camera moves, when mounted on the tower, are dependent on tripod configuration. The counterbalance system maintains a steady resistance to camera moves reducing the possibilities of irregular movements during the start or finish of a camera move.|
|SLIDER: The DC-Slider can be mounted on a single tripod or placed on level or uneven surfaces and the constant counterbalance feature will always maintain a uniform pressure that ensures uniform camera movements throughout the full tracking length of 63" (160cm)>|
|CASES||The DC-Slider system comes complete with customized system cases.|
|WEIGHTS||Camera and flat palte are precisely balanced with a variety of available weights to guarantee exact counterbalancing.|
|WHEELS||Specifically formulated composite wheels ensure smooth, silent operation of both the camera and counterbalance system.|
|HANDLE||A removable crank-handle controls the camera system across the full span of the DC-Slider in all configurations and positions.|
