elektraDRIVE w/ Basic Controller v2.0 Mfr. Site

Comments: The elektra Drive package can equip your CineSlider or Stealth Slider with motorization.  You can start with the base model shown here – and add to it over time with electric motors, the revolution head, and Oracle control system over time.   This will allow you to operate the entire system remotely for video (a remote controlled slider with pan/tilt head!) and to use it not only for video – but also for incredible time lapse photography setups.

Description (from Kessler): This bundle includes the elektraDRIVE BASIC controller v2.0 for controlling your elektraDRIVE system. If you need the advanced functionality of our ORACLE Controller, you will want to look at our elektraDRIVE Bundle Package with ORACLE Controller.

Description (from Kessler): o The ORACLE Control System is the core of our elektraDRIVE line of products. Almost two years in development, we set out to make the ultimate multi-function controller for our line of electronic products. The ORACLE Control System is interchangeable between multiple products, like our REVOLUTION Pan / Tilt System, elektraDRIVE motor pods for the CineSlider & Pocket Dolly, and other products to be released in the future.

REVOLUTION 2 Pan and Tilt Head System

Comments:  Love it. Period.  For time lapse, for live action – this is one of the easiest ways to add serious production value to your film.  We use it on everything from the Cineslider, to the rail system and Jib.   We’ve mounted all HDSLR kits and Epic on this head without issue.   

Description (from Kessler): The Kessler REVOLUTION Pan and Tilt System is our answer to the need for an affordable, quality motorized pan & tilt head. After two years of development, we have produced a motorized head that addresses the failings of other pan / tilt heads in this price range. When paired with the ORACLE Controller, we honestly feel the REVOLUTION is the most feature rich and best motorized head solution on the market, for under $5000.

elektraDRIVE 500 Series Motor Pod

Mfr. Site

Comments:  Smooth and powerful – once you go motorized… you never go back.   You become incredibly spoiled at the perfect control you get on the speed and ease-in and ease-out (dampening.)

Description (from Kessler): The 500 Series motor is the suggested Time Lapse (slow) motor for the CineSlider and would be the very slow Time Lapse motor for the Pocket Dolly and has the most torque of the 3 main motors. Approximate Dynamic Range below, for continuous live movement at the lowest and highest motor speed settings. In Timelapse mode, the motors are stepped, to slow them down to where they could take years, using the pulse method. Pocket Dolly – 10min 15 sec/ft (slow) 8.7 sec/ft (fast). CineSlider – 3min 53 sec/ft (slow) & 3.9 sec/ft (fast).
