An elegant tracking shot can be the difference between a production looking like it was made in one's basement or by a team of professionals, and the ROV Camera Slider is a new tool that lets even solo amateurs create that sheen of professionalism. The motorized slider is aimed at prosumers in terms of both price and functionality; it serves as an approachable entry-level slider for people looking to get a bit more serious about their productions.

Not everyone is necessarily familiar with a slider as a piece of camera equipment, but anyone will recognize the gear's effect. Sliders give camera operators perfectly smooth, short-range tracking shots that are far more dynamic and appealing than plain old static takes. They can be used for anything from glamour shots of static subjects to following shots to photography (to add movement to time-lapse images). Since the ROV Camera Slider is both easy to use and affordable, it's a great way for amateur producers to introduce themselves to the equipment.
