Mounting the Induro Hi-Hat and apple box on a slider

Another convenient feature of this Hi-hat/apple box combination is the ability to rapidly and securely obtain up to about 5-7 seconds of smooth truck/slider motion with my 8 ft slider, simply by dropping the combo onto the slider’s dolly.

I can secure the hat in 3 different positions to the drilled 1/4″ holes in the large apple box as shown, whether collapsed or extending the legs.

Here is the 8' slider beneath the #2 lg apple box, bolted to the Hi-hat and camera

This makes it unnecessary to detach and re-attach the Hi-Hat, and it’s and easy to take off the camera via the quick -release baseplate camera to put it on a cinema rig, for example. This means that there are many more options for developing and executing shot lists.
