Post DitoGear™ OmniSlider SERVO and V2 Firmware
I am pleased to share a major update with the forum readers.
Late summer 2011 we have introduced the new motor options for the DitoGear™ OmniSlider - the DitoGear™ OmniSlider SERVO.
The new V2 firmware is also available.

To give you an idea on what advantages we have with DitoGear™ OmniSlider SERVO:
  • Vibration-free and oscillation-free performance across full range of speeds bringing ultimate motion smoothness as well as allowing for shooting video using magic arm or shooting macro. (Steppers may somtimes cause vibrations visible on the image)
  • Low noise level allowing for working with the sound on a set across most speeds. (Stepper was way more noisy).
  • Unmatched positioning precision of 0.1mm and full motion repeatability for VFX regardless of the battery power status. (Comparable with Stepper)
  • Unmatched range of speeds on a single motor unit: 
starting from 1m / 450 days in timelapse mode to 1m / 3.85s in video mode. (Comparable with stepper, but max speed of stepper was 1m/8s)
  • High torque and payloads: over 70kg (150 lbs) in horizontal operation mode and up to 12 kg (25 lbs) in vertical operation mode. (Stepper was 3-4kg vertically)
  • Lower average power consumption (even as low as 0.2A) allowing for about 48h of continuous operation (in timelapse mode) on a kit battery! Please note that in vertical operation under high payloads the current draw may peak up to 3.5A.
  • Safe operation in case of power cutoff while operating in vertical mode. (Stepper did fall down rapidly on power cutoff, the servo would fall slowly due to the gear system used).

Here are some videos that may give you an overview of the new features of V2 Firmware and Servo motors:

Splitters may be chained so you can trigger up to 512 cameras simultaneously.

Thats some powerful motor you've got there, are they really servo's? Care to share which motor (not exact make/model) just out of interest sake.

Yes, these are servo motors w/ proprietary controllers.
