The Konova Tripod Stability Arms offers that much needed extra support at each end of your Slider when working with just one tripod. It props up each end and prevents dipping and sagging as you shift the weight of your camera side to side. On the top it has a large thumb knob with 1/4" male thread that can attach to most sliders (here i'm using an iFootage 3-axis Motion Control Kit), and on the bottom it uses a Nano Clamp to clamp anywhere onto one of your tripod legs. There are ball joints on each end so it can easily be aligned and positioned. In the center it is telescoping to extend of contract.
Video sliders are one of the easiest tools to add smooth dynamic camera movements. One of the problems you might face though is when you have to mount it over a single tripod. The weight of the camera when traveling from end to end can cause the slider to sag. In this case we often use two tripods, or one tripod and a light stand.
Konova's latest Tripod Stability Arm product tackles this problem. The telescoping arm clamps to one leg of your tripod and with a tie rod end can be positioned to support a slider perfectly horizontally, or even at various angles.
Konova is heavily promoting the fact that the Tripod Stability Arm is not just designed for Konova Sliders. The flat base and 1/4" thread allows this system to be used with just about any tripod and any slider (so long as you have a 1/4 or 3/8 tap). You can opt for one piece or a two piece kit if you're working with very long sliders, and this means you only need to travel with one tripod.
