Very nice product with one exception. Would be good to have a set screw on the back to hold the battery cover on instead of magnetic as the first time out the cover fell off. Customer service is great as they sent out a new one at no charge. Premium product worth the money and great customer service.
It Works Great, Spend some time to understand this little perie of craft & you will be amazed how great it is… Love it.
Easy to use, the quality is amazing and love the magnetic battery cover
This controller is very good to have, but it's lack of some of the features in the app leaves a little more to be desired. I personally would love to see sequencing brought to the controller, since we are given three keyposes, the ability to move through all three would be a lifesaver. Other than that, I can see myself using this in place of the app for many occasions.
Works Great, I wasn't sure if I would use it as much when I bought it. However, it is so convenient that I have it in my pocket all the time. Setting up positions is so easy that I feel twice as productive as before. Battery does not last to long, just plan to have few spares in the camera bag.
great for quick control settings
edelkrone is the products that I always trust, and their support in respond is quick. Keep up the good work.
I love and trust ALL things edelkrone, but I must admit, I was a little skeptical when I saw how simple this remote looked. I couldn’t imagine it doing everything I’ve come to expect the phone app to do...but as an added investment of over $100 I needed it to! And boy was I pleasantly surprised! It not only allowed me to free up my phone, but I actually prefer using the remote over the app now that I’ve gotten used to it. Of course it doesn’t work on the older gear that relied on the SliderPlus app (like the Head Module and the Slide Module V1 for instance), but it seems that the edelkrone way is evolving towards one ecosystem and the edelkrone app and products anyway...just glad they’re willing & able to help us get to that mountain top of geartopia. This addition to you kit comes highly recommended from someone who uses this commercially. Stay well...and creative.
Works very well and is extremely high quality. Can easily set repeating slider patterns. The only downside is that you can’t control two sliders with the same remote.
Well, it does what iPhone couldn't ... It controls HeadOne remotely from a distance of several meters, while pairing with iPhone is dying much closer in comparison. I really like app's interface and functionality, but this setup didn't work reliably in my application. Secondly, Edelkrone Controller is build like a tank with CNC machined enclosure and equipped with rigid, responsive buttons. Truly professional quality ...
Quality built unit and most importantly.. just works
Excellent! Very helpful enthusiastic people to deal with and as always with Edelkrone products the quality is sensational:)
Amazing build and functionality. If you don't want to use the app this remote is quite capable. I only wish it had 360 panorama function too...
The edelkrone Controller provides simple and efficient control of your edelkrone devices. It's purpose built and does the job just as you want and expect. Of course the app has additional features, but this is pure function in your hand. Do it.
I couldn’t work this remote I paid $129.00 now it is 25% off hope I get adjustment . But it’s not that easy plus the iPhone app isn’t easy too ??? Solution to my issue ?
Utterly Disappointing/ The remote control neither connects to my Edelkrone slider, Edelkrone head module, or focus module, as both pair screens in the remote show no items in them. The slider, head, and focus module are all connecting to my app on my phone, but nothing ever registers on the remote control. I cannot find any info online as to how to solve this problem.
Like other Edelkrone users, I was elated when the company announced this device. One of the issues that plagues this ecosystem is the unreliability of paring within the Edelkrone app. The software consistently suffers connectivity issues which require an arcane pattern of power cycling the Eldekrone hardware, restarting the phone, restarting and even sometimes reinstalling the Edelkrone app to resolve. Inevitably, whenever the app actually manages to connect it is always forcing updates to the firmware on each of the Edelkrone devices. This eats valuable time on a shoot and has proven so unreliable, it is simply not worth taking the system to paid gigs. Enter the Edelkrone controller... As presented this was promised to be a perfect solution to the connectivity issues of the app. Dedicated hardware, focused on this single task, in theory, should have provided a much better experience. Unfortunately, it has corrected none of the issues. The controller has just as many difficulties connecting to the hardware and, to make matters worse, is error prone while controlling anything it does connect to. A pan action becomes pan and tilt, a slide action turns into slide until interrupted by some other button press. The only problem this device solved is the constant nagging for firmware updates which it thankfully cannot perform. It is absolutely infuriating and disappointing to have spent so much money on this ecosystem to have it consistently fail to perform, particularly so when it produces outstanding results on the rare occasion that it might work. As a video professional, Edelkrone is hard pass as it simply is not reliably and reliability is the name of the game when time is money.
worked as expected, after some updates. all good. Personally I would like to have app updates be optional, at my discretion, as it were, that way if I'm unable to connect, I can still just get on with shooting. Even if I don't have the latest update. Too many things are app driven, it's beginning to get in the way of working, while at the same time it enables us to do more. It is a quandary.
