Will GH5 or GoPro work on SliderMini 2?
How many preset timelapse modes are there? what are they?
SliderMini 2 comes with 10 timelapse presets: Star Trails/The Milky Way/The Day Road/The Night Road/Silk Texture/Cloud/Lightning Storm/Sunset/Stream of people/Bloom. You can also make your own custom presets if you wish.
Can I manually control the slider totally without using the motor?
If you unscrew a few parts on the slider you will be able to push to slide, totally without using the motor. However, we do not recommend using it this way, because:
1) This may harm the sliding filament mechanism and affect its normal use;
2) Compared to motorized sliding, it moves harder, and less smooth.
So, to ensure product performance and user experience we recommend app remote control or one-button press control.
Can it be mounted on any tripod or only your own tripod?
Any tripod. Underneath the SliderMini 2, there’s a 3/8-16″ socket, which comes with a 1/4-20″ adapter/receptor fitted.
How do I mount my camera/smartphone on SliderMini 2?
A camera (or smartphone holder) can be mounted via 3/8″ or 1/4″ screw to the top of the sliding carriage. There is a single 3/8-16″ thread on the plate, and a panoramic adapter head is included to convert that into 1/4-20″ screw. You may also use the mini ball head or a gimbal to mount the camera.
What certifications do you have?
Here at Smartta we are committed to your safety. SliderMini 2 has CE and FCC certificates, as well as the MSDS document.
