Introducing the M-series camera slider
On seven continents, in the most demanding shooting conditions imaginable, Trost sliders have been used to provide dependably precise camera movement. We are now introducing a new Trost slider, called the M-series. Featuring native Mitchell mounts and leveling 100mm ball support, as well as an ultra low-profile and compact design, the M-series once again redefines the camera slider. We invite you to take a look and see for yourself.
Path-breaking designAn innovative offset carriage leaves room for Mitchell, 100mm ball, and 75mm ball tie-downs. This allows the slider to maintain an astonishingly low profile – less than 3″ (7.6cm) top to bottom. The result is a low center of gravity that is impossible with conventional slider designs. No more stacking risers on top of your slider.
Strongest and most precise
Smooth camera motion, even at macro scale
Weighing just 18 pounds, a Trost slider can support a fully kitted Arri Alexa or RED Epic – up to 560lbs. In fact, the heavier the camera rig, the smoother a Trost will roll. Motion is so precise that even macro and long lens shots are comfortable and repeatable.
Mitchell and 100mm leveling bowl are standard
Trost sliders can be quickly and easily configured for many types of shooting applications. A Mitchell mount with removable key allows operators to quickly adjust the angle of motion. A wide variety of mounting options, including Mitchell, 3/8, 1/4, and C-stands makes Trost compatible with most common tripod styles. Trost sliders can also be combined for 2-axis configuration, expanding the shooting envelope dramatically.
Trusted by the experts
Warm Springs Productions in the back woods
In the 3 years since field testing began, some of the most demanding shooters in the world have been using Trost sliders. Cotton Coulson (National Geographic, Lindblad Expeditions) and David Wright (BAFTA, Emmy® Award winner) of Expedition Workshops shot on Trost sliders in Antarctica and the Bering Strait – literally taking Trost to the ends of the earth. Michael Kern, meanwhile, shot on Trost in the Etosha Pan in Namibia, and Chris Benny in Australia took a Trost with him to Tasmania for client Land Rover. We were able to incorporate their suggestions and feedback in the design process, for which we are grateful.
