New ultra-portable slider could be perfect for mobile filmmakers

A new low-cost, super portable motorized Slider has appeared on IndieGoGo this week, and it’s looking pretty sweet! Seems ideal for mobile filmmakers and journalists! I just picked one up, so I figured I’d share.

Check it out here:

According to the IndieGoGo page, the slider offers:

    • Super thin & ultra-lightweight
      Quality material & real unibody design
      Excellent load capacity up to 33 LBS
      Preset timelapse modes & customizable library
      3 shooting modes: video, timelapse, stop motion
      Smooth & steady sliding, silent mode available
      Controlled either by smart APP or by hardware button

I already grabbed one. Sure hope it’s as nifty as it looks!

UPDATE – MAY 30, 2017: Having successfully wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign, the GLIF is now available for purchase directly from the Studio Neat website! The GLIF will run you $28, while the full set with hand grip and wrist strap will set you back $55. The GLIF, one of the first iPhone camera accessories is still one of the best. And it’s about to get even better! Just in case you’ve been avoiding every article ever written about mobile filmmaking, the GLIF is a pocket-sized tripod mount for your iPhone.
