YC Onion Hot Dog Motorized Slider and Chocolate Slider Pro

YC Onion sent me their new Hot Dog Motorized Slider and Chocolate Slider Pro to try out - this is an integrated 4-axis motion slider system that can be controlled from a mobile app. You can also attach third-party stabilizers gimbals from DJI and ZHIYUN.

  • The whole setup can be mounted horizontally and vertically
  • Check availability and pricing at B&H | Amazon
  • The lens used in the video is the 7Artisans 50mm f/1.05 for Nikon Z (available in the online store)
  • The setup may look complicated, but if you follow the video instructions below, you will get the basic functionality pretty quickly (see also the other instructional video for additional information on the product)

The mobile app gives you many different settings and configurations:

"All in all, this motorized slider is fairly user-friendly with a few minor glitches from time to time. It's simple to set it up, and you can operate it offline without having to connect to the app unless you want to and you want to use more advanced features, such as connecting it to a gimbal to use in conjunction. As someone who only does videography as a hobby with occasional stock or client footage, I think using a slider instantly increases the quality of your footage without necessarily needing to resort to stabilizers. Hot Dog slider falls in a relatively affordable price bracket, which could suit budget-conscious creators." (Fstoppers)
