Camera sliders are nothing new, neither is motion control. But getting the two together, in a cohesive package, that is both light weight and affordable, is something we have not seen much of yet on the market.
Today, Rhino announced their new Rhino Slider EVO + Rhino Motion, a professional camera slider designed to be the most modular and versatile tool in your kit; the perfect solution for a run and gun DSLR video shooter.
Rhino Motion enables you to capture stunning Live Motion and Timelapse in a single unit. Using a powerful, ultra-precise drive system and a built in hi-capacity battery, you can film on multiple shoots without needing to swap motors or use external batteries. Again, a huge boon for anyone shooting professional video with their DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
On its own, the Rhino Slider EVO will retail for $449 in a 24″ version, with a 42″ version available as well. If you want to pair your Slider EVO with the Rhino Motion, you can get them both in a package for $999.
You can be one of the first to get the Rhino Slider EVO by heading on over to their Kickstarter page and supporting the product with a pledge. $449 gets you the 24″ carbon fiber version of the slider.
The Slider EVO and Rhino Motion are expected to begin shipping in August of this year. We will be getting a unit in for review some time in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for our thoughts on the Rhino Slider EVO and Rhino Motion.
