A slider for the toughest shots on earth
In the field for A&E’s “Mountain Men”
In the Bering Strait and the Sonoran Desert, the Tasmanian wilderness and Antarctica, Trost sliders have provided precise camera movement in the most demanding shooting conditions anywhere. Their unique design makes entirely new categories of shots possible for small teams for the first time. We believe that Trost is the best camera motion system available, and we hope that we can convince you of this, too.
Strongest and most precise
Smooth camera motion, even at macro scale
Weighing just 15 pounds, a Trost slider can support a fully kitted Arri Alexa or RED Epic – up to 560lbs – with zero observable deflection of the rail. 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.
A rotating quick release makes setups very fast
Trost sliders can be quickly and easily configured for many types of shooting applications. A unique rotating quick-release system allows operators to quickly adjust the angle of motion. A wide variety of mounting options, including 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
For 2 years leading up to our public launch, 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. Warm Springs Productions, meanwhile, used Trost sliders on A&E’s “Mountain Men” and Chris Benny in Australia took a Trost with him to Tasmania. We were able to incorporate their suggestions and feedback in the design process, for which we are grateful.
