The Konova Master Pan is an accessory for all current and existing K-Series sliders (K3, K5 & K7) that automatically pans the camera during a sliding movement.
The system mounts to the top of the slider rail, a process which takes less than 60 seconds. Once installed, users are able to operate the Master Pan in three modes:
Inward Panning – automatically keep a pre-determined subject in frame whilst sliding, creating a ‘parallax’ effect
Outward Panning – capture an entire scene or landscape with one sweeping shot, producing a panoramic look
Tracking Shot – shoot ‘ordinary’ sliding shots without the need to remove Master Pan
Setting the target for an inward panning movement couldn’t be easier. Simply slide the camera to one end of the rail, adjust the guide rail position, so that the desired subject is within the frame and lock it in position with the red knob. Repeat this process at the other end of the slider and when the camera is moved between these positions, the subject will remain in frame.
