Grip Factory Munich has updated its GF-Slider system, with a new version of its GF-Low Rocker, which is designed for stable, low-level camera pan and tilt movements or rigging a solid camera mount for securing the camera in fixed positions (such as on a camera car).
It features: 360° panning; 45° tilt; extremely solid pan and tilt locks; left and righthand handle positions; and a three-way levelling base. It is 12cm in height, and weighs 6.3kg. It can fit on Euro or Mitchell mounts or its dedicated Base Plate.
The GF-Slider is quiet, smooth and stable, using high precision rails (with seven lengths to choose – from 60cm to 300cm). It also functions as a traditional Bangi, enabling off-set panning and camera tracking for table top shots or to track the camera in and out of tight spaces, such as windows or car doors.
The system includes a wide range of accessories, including new adjustable magnetic end stops for the slider. They can be mounted inside the rail or on the end mount, and ensure a soft stop at the end of a move.
Grip Factory is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 12.A37.
