Konova are a South Korean company that make a camera slider and skater dolly often found on Amazon and other places online. At this year’s BIRTV show they were showing a motorised skater dolly strangely named the Spaceship. It is designed for table top videography and uses a controller connected to the dolly to program moves. Interestingly it can also has a timelapse mode which would give some really interesting shooting options.
Also on show as a motor control upgrade to their existing slider. It does regular motorised moves and also timelapse. The one thing that struck me immediately was the exposed drive belt – one has to wonder how well that would live up to real world production.
