The interface is extremely simple.
Use the controls on the top part of the App screen to set the pose of your camera. Press and hold on any of the keypose buttons to record that pose. Use the same button to recall that pose. It’s that simple. Press 2 keyposes to put the system in loop between both keyposes.
You can adjust the speed and acceleration of the transition between keyposes. Or, you can easily create time-lapse videos by using the same keyposes.

Straight out of the box I was expecting to have some way to get power to this slider and head unit. Yes, I did see all the option for providing power to the HeadPlus including AC power but I ignored them trusting there would be some type of AC power cable in the box. I was wrong. Maybe I should have known but I don’t think enough was done by Edelkrone to make that clear.I immediately ordered the Canon battery power adapter from Amazon because I knew I could get it quickly. I did eventually order the Power Module V but there seems to be a delay in shipping that item. I also didn’t realize I need to get the StandOne or my SliderONE v2 would keel over in some situations. At this point I was ready to send it all back. I had also ordered a Rhino Arc II and was testing it out. But after actually getting to use the Edelkrone I was impressed by the app and how quickly I was able to get things running after I had the proper equipment. I will be returning the Rhino. Nothing against it. Its a fine slider and I loved th joystick control but I felt I had much more control over the HeadPlus and would be able to get stuff done faster with it. Plus, having a premium on space in my studio, I really need the shorter slider right now. I can always upgrade to a longer slider later. In Gerald Undone’s review where he chooses the Rhino over the Edelkrone he had been using for awhile, he bases his verdict on the Rhino being the tool he would be most likely to use. After using both, for me, that’s the Edelkrone. Everyone works differently, I suppose. The problems I pointed out are not huge, but they were significant enough to knock a star off my rating. A little more communication about what constitutes a working rig right out of the box would be appreciated.
The head plus is amazing! Workflow is so much faster than before!
Super smooth, simply the best. Super happy with this purchase. Can't believe I went without for so long!!
Simply just amazing! Buttery smooth movement which equals buttery smooth shots; which equals buttery smooth income! Love the fact that you can manually aim your camera and lock that pose! This has easily been my favorite Edelkrone purchase because not only can I get dynamic shots but I can concentrate on the shot and not the “tech” behind it and how to do it!
Well built but loses connectivity to the app far too often.
Head plus is a great piece of hardware. There is a little bit of shake when it switch from one target to another. I’m not sure what it is. It overall it’s a great item.
I was incredibly stoked to get a head plus. I saved pennies and waited to order. Upon attaching my battery bracket plate the machine metal threads stripped on the head plus with incredibly little effort. Probably just a manufacturing defect wouldn't normally care but the price point made me expect something strong, quality tested and durable. Great tool I absolutely love it -- but poor attachment screws and machined threads.
This works like butter
So far the head plus has been super smooth for me and easy to calibrate the balance. I also love the ease of spinning the bottom to attach to my slider or tripod instead of spinning the whole unit. Great design
Fantastic product. Smooth as silk and very quiet.
quality quality quality !!!
