NEWS – Several years ago, I purchased my first slider for over $2000. As a Photographer/Videographer, I had grand ideas for creative projects in various locations indoors and outdoors. The slider was relatively large and heavy and required several add-ons to be functional, and it took quite a bit of effort and time to be ready to go. After a few uses, I got tired of using it, and to this day, it remains relatively brand new in the multiple cases it requires to be stored safely.
Since then, I have looked at many sliders as new designs, features and options have become available, but somehow none of them intrigued me either because of the size, the cost, or the lack of features that I want and need.
Enter the SMARTTA SliderMini 2
This slider will be released soon and has features that I am extremely interested in trying. It is small and compact and boasts smooth motion control, 4 specialty modes that include a 10 preset Time-lapse Mode, a one-tap stop motion, a Loop Mode, a Stay Mode For Time-lapse and Stop Motion, a Curve Mode, a 1500 mAh built-in battery that can last up to 52 hours, and dual control including via the Smartta Go app that is available on both Android and iOS.
I am also especially interested because, in 2018, the original SMARTTA SliderMini V1 was 1639% funded on Indiegogo in one month, and it won an iF Design Award 2019.
The SliderMini 2 will be released soon and is expected to be shipped in mid-July 2020. To celebrate the release, SMARTTA will be offering 20% off plus a free Ball Head (a $69 value). I am expecting to receive a sample of the SliderMini 2 for review, so you can stay tuned for my detailed opinion. Visit ismartta.com for more info.
