Succesful cooperation with filmmakers has led to the creation of a new, innovative slider that meets the needs perfectly. The slider carries heavy film cameras such as CANON C500, SONY F55 or ARRI ALEXA. Lightweight construction, modularity of the system and easy one person assembling/ disassembling were the main goals during the designing process.
ATLAS MODULAR SLIDER allows easy connection of rail sections to create 2m, 4m, 8m or even longer tracks that meet the filmmaker’s needs. Also available are 2m and 3m sections. Maximum recommended length is 12 meters. The construction of the set allows assembling and disassembling without the use of any tools.
Even with significant weight of the set (camera with all accessories), the slider won't yield under it. Each section is equipped with four adjustable feet, that easily and quickly fix to any surface. You can precisely and in no time level the set standing on the ground.
When working in small spaces, or when you simply need a short track for your camera, you can use only one standard 0,8m or 1,2m rail section mounted on only one tripod. Depending on the weight of your set, you can use additional DUAL SUPPORT.
Three tubular construction (truss) guarantees rigidity and strength of the set in all directions. This allows to configure a standard 2m long slider comprising of two sections: 0,8m and 1,2m.
PERFECT MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM FOR YOUR STUDIO OR STAGE
Even a long slider can be successfully mounted upside down to an aluminium construction or a ceiling. Threads for 3/8” screws are placed on both sides of a slider.
The slider sides come with magnetic bumpers, that act as a brake when the cart approaches the end of the slider. This allows the cameraman to focus solely on capturing the best image, instead of worrying about how much working range is still remaining on the slider. The magnetic bumpers gently slow down the cart, prompting the camera operator that he is approaching the motion range end.
ATLAS MODULAR SLIDER CART
Slider cart is equipped with 12 wheels, made of a specialy chosen rubber. The positioning of the wheels allows the cart to freely move, no matter the slider position - horizontal, vertical, diagonal or even upside down.
ATLAS MODULAR DRIVE
The ATLAS MODULAR DRIVE is designed to work horizontally with maximum speed 0,4m/sec.
The cart is equipped with many accessories that make the job easier.
It has a permanent friction brake as well as an adjustable damping brake. It also has a 75/100mm alluminium half bowl sockets, distance pins to controll the elevation of the head, mouting plate 3/8”, magnetic grips for mounting optional accessories, magnetic bumpers, 3/8” and M10 mounts for various sockets.
EASY & QUICK MOUNTING METHOD
For a proper mounting of the slider onto the tripods, there are specially designed selfadjusting adapters for 75mm and 100mm head bowl sockets.
They are clamped with a universal 3/8” screw. For each section there is one adapter 75/100mm and one universal 3/8” screw.
