Edelkrone has launched Wing, a non-motorized sliding armature that attaches to a tripod and glides a camera in a straight line without rails.  Wing has a total gliding range of 40cm / 16in and is made from CNC machined lightweight aluminum. According to Edelkrone, Wing is designed to stay out of the shot at all points.

When collapsed, Wing measures 147 x 45 x 66cm / 5.7 x 1.7 x 2.6in and weighs 0.54kg / 1.2lb. The unit features a 3/8”-16 mounting port on the bottom and a standard 1/4”-20 mounting screw on the top, as well as locking and drag adjustment mechanisms to fix the camera in place or alter the amount of friction.

Wing is available to purchase now for $249.
