Although there is a lot of discussion about how smoothly camera sliders move, another feature – equally important – is how slowly it can move. Working with many camera operators in many environments, we’ve found that the ability to execute slow moves is most often what people need. Because of this, Trost sliders have an adjustable drag control that lets you dial in precise amounts of friction. This makes very slow, smooth camera moves possible – all the way down to 2 cm/minute.
Fast, easier, more accurate

Faster, easier, more accurate

Trost sliders deliver many production benefits in one small, portable package. Their unparalleled precision means that they can be used in ways that other sliders cannot. Macro photography, long lens shots, and extremely precise moves all become possible, potentially giving you new categories of production services to offer your clients. And although they are extremely strong and durable, Trost sliders are extremely easy and fast for one operator to carry and set up.
Macro

Macro

Macro cinematography requires camera motion that is extremely stable. Just as the tiniest image detail is magnified, so is the tiniest shake, shudder, or deflection of a camera slider. As a result, conventional sliders cannot perform moving macro shots reliably. Trost sliders open an entirely new world of cinematography and product photography that you can offer your clients.
Long lens

When you are shooting with longer focal lengths, every movement of the camera is multiplied. Just as in the case of macro photography, only absolute stability allows for a usable shot. Most sliders simply can’t operate predictably in long lens applications. Trost sliders can do so, and this opens up what is almost an entirely new use for a slider.

Trost sliders provide absolute stability for camera packages up to 560lbs. But a fully outfitted Trost weighs only 18lbs. This means that DSLR rigs work great, and a fully kitted RED or Alexa works even better. No matter what the production size, Trost will deliver reliable and consistent motion on every shot.
Quick, versatile shot setups

Quick, versatile shot setups

Big, easy-to-hold handles, a rotating quick-release system, tons of mounting options, and a lightweight, portable package – all of these things make it easy to move from setup to setup very quickly. There aren’t any delicate belts, buttons, or fiddly plastic bits that can snap off or jam. Set up, shoot, reposition, shoot again, set up again – our goal was to make it smooth, fast, and simple.
