Konova MSS-250 Smart Motorised System
The Smart Motorised System (MSS-250) from Konova provides a solution for real-time motion control and programmed shoot-move-shoot sequences on their K3, K5 & K7 sliders.
Setting up the system is a fast and simple process. Once the motor mounting plate has been fitted to the slider carriage using the included hex screws, the consequential setup time takes less than 60 seconds. Only two components need to be fixed to the slider – the belt and the motor. The belt clamps to either end of the slider using the existing mounting hardware on the slider and the motor itself screws to the slider carriage using a single hand-tightened knob.
For real-time motion control, the carriage can be operated in two ways. The first allows the user to control the carriage in real time, using the controllers’ joystick to define a moving direction. Secondly, the controller can be setup to loop the same movement, with applications as an unmanned second camera, such as for an interview. In this mode, the limit switches are used as a trigger to change the moving direction.
As well as real-time applications, the Smart controller really shines in regards to programmed move-shoot-move sequences. The move-shoot-move system can be used for both user-controlled stop-motion animation and for natural time-lapse shots.
The Smart controller gives users total control over the time-lapse parameters. They are able to define independently the total number of shots to capture, interval between each shot and the carriage moving distance from one frame to the next.
To ensure exact synchronisation between the carriage movement and the frame capture, a camera release trigger cable is included to connect a DSLR or stills camera to the system. When connected, the Konova system will send a signal to fire the cameras’ shutter at the correct point during the sequence capture.
Konova also offer the M1 Smart Pan & Tilt Head. This can be combined with the MSS-250 and a slider for 3-axis programmed time-lapse sequences.
For 2-axis control, the MSS-250 can be fitted at the same time as the Master Pan. In this setup, only a single motor needs to be programmed, with the second axis set using the guide rail adjustment.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
