Promediagear PMG-DUO 36 Inch Motorized Video Slider

I am selling a 36 inch long double sided video slider with a straight track on one side and a curved track on the other side. The curved track has a 96 inch radius and is just right for doing interviews. Made with high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum which means it is lightweight and durable.

The included programmable motor control allows controlling the speed of movement along the slider rail. It also allows for the triggering of the shutter of your camera during Time Lapse Photography.

The track can be supported in several ways. It can be sat on top of a table and supported with the included adjustable position legs to allow positioning on most any surface, or it can be supported with either two light stands or two tripods using two CS60 PMG-DUO Slider Mounting Clamps. There are also holes at each end of the track with a tightening screw to use with any standard light stand. I used two heavy duty Impact Light stands for stability. You can see that in my photo that was taken in my former studio.

It is also includes a Heavy Duty Bag for transporting and storing the slider track. The condition of everything included is just like in brand new condition.

The Camera in the photos is NOT INCLUDED.

What is a Camera Slider?
A camera slider is an essential videography tool that allows for smooth movement on a horizontal plane. It can be set to slide forward and backward or left and right. Other sliders can be mounted vertically for up and down movement.

Why use a camera slider?
There are multiple reasons why a slider is worth using. Shooting an establishing shot or revealing a scene looks more dramatic with a slider. But the best reason why you should use one is it transforms a static scene into a dynamic one. There are scenes where a standing shot looks nice yet with a slider, it transforms into something more phenomenal.

2 each CS60 PMG-DUO Slider Mounting Clamp
Easily Mount the Slider to the Clamp (on Tripods, Light Stands, Etc...)
Machined from Delrin, a non-marring material
Allows for quick removal of the PMG-DUO Slider to "Flip" from Straight to Curve Slider Side. I used them to mount the slider using two tripods. I did this on top of Mt Evans at 14,130 feet doing a 40 minute Time Lapse and played it back in 25 seconds in my video on YouTube. These clamps sell for $59.95 each. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3f_FdoVw-E

I am also selling the slider with a Benro S7 Video Head supports camera rigs weighing up to 15.4 pounds. It is equipped with a 65mm flat base for attaching directly to tripods, monopods, sliders, and other camera support equipment with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud. It can also be adapted to 75mm bowl-type legs and hi-hats using an optional half ball adapter. A 4-step counterbalance system helps you counter the weight of your rig or heavy lens, and continuous pan drag adjustment lets you dial in the right amount of tension for each shot. The pan and tilt locks operate independently of each other and are located on the operator's side of the head for easy access and control. The head has tilt range of -50° to +90°.

Your camera attaches to the S7 head via an included Manfrotto 501/504PL compatible sliding quick release plate. Also included is an adjustable-length pan bar handle which can be mounted on either side of the head. Additional features include an illuminated bubble level and two 3/8"-16 threads for attaching optional accessories, such as a monitor or recorder.

PM501 Manfrotto-Type Quick Release Plate with Arca-Type Clamp
I have upgraded the camera mounting plate to the Benro S7 video head to be able to use Arca-Swiss camera quick release mounting plates. The PM501 Plate is a must-have accessory for DSLR videographers who use Arca-Type Tripod Plates on the bottom of their camera.This plate allows you to lock your DSLR camera onto a variety of popular video tripods. Sells new for $47.95.

I am also including the following two items which I found very useful to mount the motor controller to one end of the track and to provide a quick disconnect function.

E-Image Mini Articulating Arm (2.9")
E-Image’s 2.9" Mini Articulating Arm allows you to secure rig accessories in tight spaces, while still affording flexible positioning. The end joints can be articulated 180°, and the center wing nut tightens them down to hold position. Both ends of the arm feature 1/4"-20 threads, making this arm compatible with most camera cages and rig accessories.

Sliding Quick Release Collar
Add the ease of a quick release to any 1/4"-20 mounting point with this E-Image Quick Release Accessory Mount from Ikan. It features a male 1/4"-20 screw on top with a sliding collar quick release beneath.

After being actively doing photography for sixty years, I am very sad that I am no longer able to pursue my lifelong passion. I wish that I didn’t have to sell this as it’s a very useful piece of photography gear. Unfortunately about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with a very rare disease called Myasthenia Gravis disease. There is NO known cure, only treatments I currently am receiving infusions of Immune Globulin every 5 weeks to treat my disease. However they are very expensive. So I am trying to raise some money to help pay for my medical bills. You help will be very much appreciated.
