Single Axis Motion Control
The S1A1 provides wireless motion control of the Shark carriage, and shutter control for the camera. It includes a V-mount battery (95 WH) and charger, and a sturdy carrying case. Programming of carriage movement is versatile and easy. The camera shutter control programming makes this system an amazing product for time-lapse photography/video.
And the S1A1 attaches to the Shark slider in just minutes without tools!
3 Axis Motion Control
The X2 systems can be combined with an S1A1 to add 2 axis tilt and pan motion control. The X2 can be powered from the same V-mount battery on an S1A1, or can have its own battery.
All the motors are very quiet!
The maximum camera payload for the X2 mounted on a shark is recommended to be less than 9 lbs.
Standalone 2 axis motion control
A standalone X2 system with battery and wireless control, along with wireless camera shutter control can be purchased for mounting on tripods, cranes, etc. to provide tilt and pan control of the camera.
As a standalone 2 axis system, the maximum camera payload of the X2 is 16 lbs (optimum payload is less than 9 lbs.)
A Completely Programmable System
Just like actors who require practice to get that dialogue just right, videographers often need to reshoot the same scene repeatedly. This is where the S1A1 comes in; it registers up to 9 different tracks with programmed movements.
The tracks are easily accessible from the data packet and can be reused as needed. With repeated moves at different lengths of time, a wide range of visual effects can also be achieved easily.
In addition, the S1A1 offers 'Manual Mode' which is perfect for run-and-gun style without losing precision. Its user friendly interface allows you to grab shots on-the-fly with no pre-programmed motion control.
. . . And the same controller is used for 3 axis systems.
