In this video, i'm running through some of the features you'll find with the new Cinevate HoriZen video slider. Out of the box the slider can be used directly on any flat surface, and includes non-marring small adjustable feet for minor leveling adjustments. If your'e looking to use it on more aggressive terrain, you can opt-in for the All Terrain Legs that add a lot more height and stability.
You can find several threaded points under the HoriZen for mounting it to tripods or stands. The slider is trapped between the Aluminum frame, so you can use the slider completely inverted. The Variable Magnetic Braking feature is by far a true game changer when it comes to video sliders. Through opposing magnetic forces similar to brakes on an Electric Super Train it's an ingenious feature with zero friction and zero wear.
I've never worked with a smoother video slider, and the ability to fine tune a 'drag feel' according to the weight of your rig or to your preference is pretty amazing. Perfect for heavier camera setups, but can be tuned to the same feel for smaller lightweight camera systems. Along the sides of the slider are sliding threaded mounts for you to add cine-arms or other accessories.

The new Ursa Mini Pro 4.6K cameras now accept SDXC Cards. This is an excellent option to have as CFAST cards are still not going down much in pricing. It's almost 4x cheaper going with SDXC Cards. You won't be able to record the highest resolution, codec, or framerates, but for many projects ProRes HQ is good enough.
