The folks at ProMediaGear.com were showing their PMG-DUO sliders with a looping motor drive.
The innovative sliders are made from a solid block of aluminum and feature a straight track on one side and a curved track on the other.
They’re very strong, reasonably light, and well made. A 32″ slider without motor is $600.
The friction motor drive can do both video and time lapse speeds. It can be set to loop back and forth for interview footage. The reversing point when looping back and forth is not smooth, but since the additional cost of the motor drive unit is only $500, we might forgive them.
The company makes a variety of machined aluminum photo equipment from their home in Chicago.
