Featuring App-controlled Motion, Users can Easily Customize the Speed, Length, Direction and Time-Lapse of Each Shot; Indiegogo Campaign Launches Today to Fund Product’s Final Development
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Dyno Equipment today introduced Trek, the world’s first modular, motorized camera slider system for GoPros, small cameras and smartphones. Featuring Android and iOS app-controlled motion, users can easily customize the speed, length, direction and long exposure time-lapse for each shot, bringing videos to life anywhere, anytime. Priced at a fraction of the cost of similar professional systems, Trek is highly affordable and is perfect for both professional and hobbyist video makers alike. An Indiegogo campaign (https://igg.me/at/dynotrek), which has a funding goal of $50,000 USD, features limited Early Bird specials for the Trek “basic” kit at $199 USD (33% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.
Trek features a sleek, portable design, and is built with Magnetic Quick Connect technology; a patent-pending track connection system that allows users to go from packed up to fully assembled in just seconds. The completely tool-less system allows users to spend less time setting up and more time getting epic, memorable shots. Extremely stable on any surface, Trek’s leg design ensures the user’s slider will remain stable at all times. The patent pending design of the shuttle allows for movement on any incline, from horizontal to completely vertical and even upside down. In addition, the universal mount on top of the shuttle allows for any camera under 1lb to be used.
“After searching high and low for a modular, motorized camera slider that was cost-effective and easy to use, we soon realized that such a product just did not exist,” said Chris Szczur, CEO and co-founder, Dyno Equipment. “Most of the products on the market are made for larger cameras and are too expensive, bulky and complex. By reimagining the technology, we have been able to create a product that anyone can use anywhere, anytime.”
Partially funded by Clarity Design, a full service design & manufacturing firm, Dyno Equipment is in a unique situation of having molds, supply chain and packaging for the Trek system already done. For backers, this means they can feel completely confident they will receive product once the crowdfunding campaign is finished.
