The Kickstarter project ‘Nebo Slider’ is hailed as “the world’s most lightweight and portable motion controlled slider for video and timelapse photography.” The new lightweight and portable slider is developed by Capture Beyond Limits, a Utah based company hoping to raise $50,000 to bring the product to market.
The slider currently sits at roughly $22,000 with 18 days left to reach their goal of $50,000. I like what I see from this little slider, and would love the chance to give one a try once they are funded – or if, I guess I should say.
The Nebo Slider is motion controlled, and weighs in at only 3.2lbs, it’s also a good 40″ long, meaning you won’t run out of track for most uses. I also like how easy it is to pack down and travel with . This seems like the perfect slider for anyone that travels with their slider or those adventure videographers who want to take their gear up into the mountains at the end of a long hike.
