The C-Pan allows the camera plate to move in a straight line. With a travel of 5 feet and a payload of 17lbs, this can be used to replace most conventional sliders, but by simply adjusting the radius knob on the joint, the camera plate will remain pointed at a subject, mimicking a curved slider. Interestingly enough, this rig can be arranged to be vertical at any angle in-between, allowing users to even move the camera along a curved diagonal line around their subject.

The video showcases a prototype, but the core mechanics are the same.  The C-Pan Arm will be available by June at $2200.
