The Hedron is a new line of Cinevate camera sliders, available in four lengths from 2 to 5 foot. With a payload of 100lbs this is a heavyweight slider, I was sent the 3 foot version to check out and review.
Crafted from CNC aluminium and lighter than Cinevates Atlas 10 slider at respective lengths, the Hedron ships with all terrain adjustable legs and anti-scratch feet.
It’s compatible with Moco systems for motion control, and a counterweight for vertical slides, but the most exciting optional extra is the flywheel.
This is quite a unique feature of the Hedron, it attaches to the carriage via belt. The weight of the flywheel builds momentum as the carriage moves, providing a smoother and more consistent slide.
