Bishop-Wisecarver Offers Compact Linear Guide Camera Slider Kit
Smooth and silent sliding motions based on UtiliTrak® Linear Guide Technology
Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation, manufacturer of the original DualVee® guide wheel and industry leader in guided motion technology, announced today the availability of a camera slider kit based on their proven UtiliTrak Linear Guide Technology. The UTCSK camera slider is a sleek, compact motion solution for filmmakers looking to create smooth, professional camera shots with minimal equipment and hassle.
"The UtiliTrak product line has been successful in diverse industrial applications as linear guides due to the smooth, and precise rolling characteristics of the guide wheels," said Brian Burke, Project Engineer for Bishop-Wisecarver. "Our creative in-house video production staff requested a camera slider for producing impressive dynamic shots to incorporate into product demonstration videos. We realized that this useful application would be valuable to other B2B professionals as a cost-effective solution to their own in-house video productions."
Ideal for small to medium lightweight DSLR cameras and lenses, UTCSK is available in two standard lengths of aluminum track (1000 mm and 1500 mm). For easy tripod mounting, ¼-20" threads are located at the center and on both ends of the track. The anodized aluminum wheel plate with linear guide wheels includes a ¼-20" camera thumb screw for use with or without a ball head mount. For camera safety, two adjustable end stop blocks with nylon screws come as standard.
