Product Videos & Reviews
I’ve found the OmniSlider and OmniHead to be fast enough for high-speed shots where moving the camera can add magic to the already exciting slow motion footage.
Together with Evolution it is a great motion control kit for all kinds of shooting scenarios.
I became interested in DitoGear’s Motion Control Kits for real-time and high-speed shooting rather than timelapse which a lot of people use it for. Being able to do multiple takes, that are precisely the same every time is not only useful for vfx shots, but also for complex scenes, that need to be rehearsed to perfection. Once set up you can trust DitoGear products to perform exactly the same move twice or a thousand times.
It´s such a versatile product, and i tend to use it on almost any of my shootings. We use it as a dolly substitute in smaller locations, as Motion Control unit for packshots, tabletop stuff and of course for timelapse shooting. It´s easy to setup even at 4:00 in the morning in complete darkness without any coffee 🙂 I’m looking forward to extend our equipment with the OmniHead and Evolution Control.
Life has become so much easier now: we are not sitting on the floor trucking a camera along, lining it up to the roughly penciled measurements and hoping our maths matches our expectations…
OmniSlider was a lifesaver in our shooting. We could do very fast setups and it even gave us new ideas on the set on how to use it for different effects.
We used the 2m OmniSlider during a one week shoot in Stockholm for a stop motion commercial with paper cut outs. During the shoot, we sometimes had to go back in the tracking motions something like 30 takes to correct something, and we could easily back-track our motion to match the frames thanks to the precision of the OmniSlider. It was a joy to work with the OmniSlider and it’s already out on it’s second mission, shooting an identity for a major swedish channel.
The OmniSlider has really helped me this year to catch new and very interesting timelapse on the Aurora Borealis. I work on a new Aurora film right now and it just looks great. I have been working in temperatures down to -30 degrees C. Might be the limit for the equipment but it has been working well.
You need to trust the equipment when you spend night after night to catch the very best Aurora sequences.
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider offers high production value for a low investment. Tracking, craning and job shots are all possible with this fantastic piece of kit. It’s hard wearing and well built and I expect many years of active service while putting it through the harshest of environments.
Great for video in motion and excellent for timelapses.
The OmniSlider is a product that is well build. Operation is amazingly simple. I use the slider both for real-time video and timelapse. The OmniSlider excels in both ways. I would definitely recommend to get the case too.
Have you ever fallen in love with a nice piece of elegant metal and some electronics? Well, I have. She is called DitoGear™ OmniSlider!
We use a 1.5m version for shooting a wildlife film in the Florida Everglades. We have chosen it after a long evaluating process. The priority was to have a multipurpose tool for DSLR timelapse and also for real-time video with a Red Epic. Total and very precise repeatability was also a must as we film over several seasons. And the OmniSlider works just fine, we love it!
A really nice slider. I’m using it on all of my productions, from big to low budget videos. Thanks to this product I have new, greater possibilities for my productions.
DitoGear™ OmniSlider is a great product and always reliable: makes exactly what it’s built for. The product works with high precision and ensures very good results.
DitoGear™ are an inspiring new company that have enabled me to step up my production to the next level. The OmniSlider, once rigged, is an awesome film making tool!
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider is a great affordable solution to take your time-lapse photography to the next level!
Précis, efficace et beau à regarder, l’Omnislider est un jouet vraiment extraordinaire, un coup de maître!!!
We have used other sliders, but the first time we worked with DitoGear™ OmniSlider it was different, robust material! Reliability, good construction, a wide range of possibilities, incredible precision… It’s perfect support for our creativity.
This really is a great product in terms of quality and price. Relatively simple to set up and use. We rent this out regularly and I expect it to last for a very long time as the build quality is first class.
Solidly built slider with optimal price-performance ratio and competent reliable service.
DitoGear™ has consistently surpassed my expectations with their support, quality, and attention to detail. The OmniSlider, specifically, is well-built and extremely precise. Everything is intuitive, built for filmmakers by filmmakers. I couldn’t be happier with their products!
I am very pleased with the DitoGear™ OmniSlider for motion-controlled time-lapses. The rail is a tank and the case keeps it quite safe. I have placed it inside my ski bag for flying which helps with checking, as there are no funny looks or questions! The slider has also been up to 11.000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the back of a mule, and made it.
Moving up from my entry level MOCO device to the OmniSlider Servo has been a huge leap in ease of use, functionality, accuracy and build quality. I’m using it in my classes and it’s holding up very nicely to the rigors of inexperienced student use. We have found its controller logical, well thought out and easy to master. Great system, looking forward to seeing where they take it next.
The DitoGear™ OmniSlider has allowed us to take our timelapses to a whole other level! The fluidity and beauty of the motion is wonderful! Evolution allows us a new kind of freedom using the OmniSlider, and we look forward to any new developments with DitoGear™.
DitoGear™ products are really well built and performs just as you are promised they would. I’ve used OmniSlider and OmniHead in many productions and will do so definitely in the future too.
They really give us totally new ways to carry out our artistic visions. It´s a perfect tool for all motion picture artists, who wants to spice up their productions.
I’ve been shooting timelapse for over 10 years, starting on 16mm film. The DitoGear™ range is everything I’ve dreamed of to make my shots more dynamic and fluid and it’s exceptionally well made by fellow professionals, who are always willing to help.
