In this video I review the YC Onion Chocolate Slider, which is a mini motorized camera slider, and a damn good one at that. But is it the best mini motorized camera slider available?
The build quality of this slider is fantastic, it's easy to use, and its portability make it perfect for throwing in even the smallest camera backpack. Most importantly, the footage it provides is professional and smooth, even when using telephoto lenses.
So besides the price (which is pretty good in my opinion), what's keeping this motorized slider from being the obvious choice compared to things like the Zeapon Motorized Micro 2 or the GVM WY-2V?
There are some downsides to this mini slider that might be a deal breaker for you, although most of the negative aspects are found across all brands of mini sliders.
I tested this camera slider with my Canon M50 and 14-45mm kit lens, as well as my Sony a7R III with a Tamron 28-75mm lens, and it handled both with ease. I think the Canon M50 is the perfect companion to mini motorized camera sliders like the YC Onion Chocolate Slider because of it's super light weight and flip out screen.
It's cheaper than the Edelkrone SliderONE v2, has some advantages over the Rhino ROV Pro, but is more expensive than larger motorized camera sliders with more features, so how could it fit into your workflow?
