edelkrone is a company that keeps fascinating us with their affordable, inventive gear ideas. Also it seems they’re in a habit of doubling the size of their booth each year. In 2014 they’re taking an impressive center position in the production hall.
The first product Kadir Köymen showed me is a concept called “Wing” that is a slider that doesn’t slide, but instead moves the camera with the help of a sophisticated articulated arm mechanism. Kadir mentioned to me that the design is not complete and they will still work on perfecting it to make it widely applicable.
The other intriguing product was an add-on to the existing sliderplus & sliderplus pro that turns it into a motion control system. While it is marketed as a motion control system it can probably be better explained as a motorized slider solution that is very intuitive to setup because that is done by positioning and moving the camera itself to set in- and outpoints.
Together with the target module this is an extremely nice product to help you upgrade your sliding shots. Well done Kadir.
