Shooting objects with Canon C3000 and slider

Working in the film studio with the Canon C3000 crewed by fine art undergraduates. We were trying to find ways for objects to enter and leave the frame. Initially I thought that pairing the super high definition camera with some obviously hand operated revolves and slides would be interesting, but the quality of the image meant that wobbly movement looked really circumspect. We spent a lot of time with a motorised slider to create shots where objects smoothly moved across the frame. The slider was only 1m long which restricted what we were able to shoot in order for things to enter and leave the frame. Larger objects had to be cropped close, but the results were amazing. The clarity of the images with the perfect smoothness of the pan are very enticing. Being able to make out all of the surface texture in the small plaster pieces feels intoxicating.
