    Comments appreciated.
    This is not related to the topic. Not really anyway.

    The video you posted here is an extremely detailed analysis of very small deviation in the Edelchrone motion control product.

    Motion Control is a VERY serious topic if you are working with digital compositing and motion control. Typically, pro Motion Control equiment is VERY expensive because it needs to be able to EXACTLY repeat the motions of heavy camera loads, and that is no small task. This video is obviously analyzing the Edelchrone for THAT purpose.

    For time lapse videos and for 99% of all "Programmed motion" that anyone in typically in our market would be doing, the accuracy of the Edelchrone and comparable products is more than enough.

    Following up.
    1) Would your human powered slider with flywheel be smoother than this? (less than 3 pixels of oscillation) (Not asked as a provocative question).
    2) Should I start a new thread?

    The video you linked was not identifying errors in 'smoothness' but rather in accuracy of exact positioning of where it moved to.

    Sliders with a flywheel are always smoother when sliding by hand than a slider without a flywheel. A lot smoother.

    Guys, I have a Libec H38 tripod fluid head. Anyone knows if this would fit the shark slider?

    Thanks

    Just to add that my tripod head has a 75mm bowl. Anyone knows if I'll need an adapter to use it on the shark slider?
