23Jan Nitsan DIY Momentum Wheel for Konova Slider


Tweet

Here’s an interesting video that Nitsan has shared to help smooth out your video slider movements. By using the Konova Slider with Crank Handle Kit (seen here), a weight is added in place of the Crank Arm. The momentum of the spinning weight prevents jerky movements or harsh stop/starts. As mentioned in the video, it’s [...]

13Mar Konova Motorized Upgrade Kit – Now Available


Tweet

Konova threw up a few Timelapse teasers of their Motorized upgrade kit a few days ago. With a motorized attachment, you will definitely get more consistent movement time and time again as opposed to operating by hand. One con of course is the added noise from said motor.
With all the questions coming around, I thought [...]

Tweet

Wondlan seems to be on a roll with releasing products, but not so much when it comes to pricing them against already successful existing products on the market.

11Feb Konova Releases 23″ Travel Friendly Sized Slider


Tweet
I don’t know exactly when it happened, but it happened. Although i’m a big fan of the Konova slider, I always wished they had a smaller version than 31″. At 31″ inches, that was just a little bit too long to pack in some of my bags when traveling. So recently they just started listing [...]

12Jan Konova’s New K5 Slider – Bigger


Tweet

Konova has one of the most popular roller bearing sliders on the market, and has now made available their new K5 slider which is a slightly larger version.

05Aug DIY Motorized Konova Slider


Tweet

Nice little DIY to motorize a Konova slider. Using a continuous Servo (some servos don’t rotate continuously) and Servo controller Vimeo member C Light gives us a sneak peek at work in progress.

14Jul Konova K-Slider and GoPro


Tweet

Using the GoPro in odd ways. DIY suction mount to the hood of a car, on a monopod as a Golf Putter, and did you know it fits perfectly inside a Golf Hole? Playing with the Konova Camera Slider out on the course. Just total randomness and plain fun.

23Mar Konova’s Mini Video Photo Fluid Head


Tweet
Konova is now pushing a small Fluid Head for their SpiderTrax-Like Rotating Video Dolly or their popular Camera Roller Bearing Slider.

Tweet

Not sure if you can see the thumbnail in the video, but something about that slider doesn’t look quite right. Oh yeah it’s upside down! Vimeo member phoSumpro! shows a new way to use the Konova slider. Actually seems like a new way to use any camera slider. By mounting the slider upside down with [...]
