This has made me actually start using my Slider Plus and Head Ones more often. With a less than ideal phone, I always had connection issues with the Edelkrone app. The remote is so much easier and efficient, and allows me to use my phone as a teleprompter again. This thing is extremely well built, and it will make a huge difference in the continues success if my YouTube channel.
Thanks for the battery query follow-up Edelkrone, for anyone else interested re; battery power with this remote; 1) Actually, Controller batteries are hot-swappable. Meaning, while connected to a setup if you just unplug the batteries and put new ones, there is no "pairing" step involved. It instantly reconnects to the last setup. 2) Time-Lapse duration is independent from the batteries of the Controller. Once Time-Lapse is set, it continues to work even if remote is shut off. Controller does not need to stay connected with the device as long as Time-Lapse duration. Knowing this should negate any battery concerns other users/potential buyers may have had regarding the remote.
Would be nice to be able to hot swap a battery, or extend time with an external battery, currently there is a 'limited use' for timelapse with a limited battery
This controller is an essential add-on to any of the edlekrone motion package. It eliminates the need to have to use phone or ipad to control the motion. It is easy to use and very small in size.
It's great to have a controller that allows me to have my phone resting and doing phone things. The initial setup and firmware updates take some time but once you complete the process, it's smooth from there. I haven't taken the setup for a complete ride but the initial tests are very promising. The magnetic battery cover is a nice touch.
Way better than the app on the phone
The edelkrone app is easy enough to use, but this controller frees up my iPhone. So I now specifically use the controller!
Great improvement over the app. Intuitive. Lens calibration for any lens without prior setup. Big improvement.
Remote functions fine for what it does... But it does not yet have stop motion capability, so for me me it won’t replace the app on my phone.
I have a Jib One and a Head Plus and the controller makes things much easier. Very responsive to switch back and forth between presets.
Love this. It’s so much better than using my phone to control the rigs. But it eats batteries like crazy. I used some AAAs (non recharging) and they only lasted a few uses. So I guess I’ll have to buy rechargeable ones. And sometimes there is a SERIOUS lag when moving the sliderone v2 or headone. Like you let go of the button and it still moves a ton. Which is frustrating. Even when I literally am holding the remote to the slider. Hopefully this can all be fixed somehow. Because the feeling of this remote is great. Feels rugged and solid in the hand. I wish it had a rubberized case so I wasn’t so worried about dropping it. And the screen is pretty dim so it’s hard to see it outside. I do love it though and the idea of this was the missing piece of my setup.
Saving me time while shooting I love it
Super easy to get working right out of the box. An update for each Edelkrone device (and I think I own almost everything they sell) but after that I was able to use the remote with each item individually as well as in groups. Using this also free-ups my phone as a remote making this a must have!
I love the remote, it's quick and easy to set up. I brought it to a movie set just yesterday, but ended up not using it, since the focus module was not accurate enough for what we needed. I wish the sensitivity on the remote would be a little better to really fine tune the focus.
