Mercedes Benz A-Class - Blue

As you remember, five weeks ago I was invited to Slovenia by Mercedes Benz to check out and test drive the new A-Class. You can find the whole Post and photos over here. You might also remember that I hurt my ankle on the first evening and wasn’t able to check out the second day of the Event. So with this in mind and that some other out of my area didn’t get the chance to see the car, Wolfgang of Mercedes Benz came over last monday to give us another opportunity for a little shooting. So thats what we did and by we I mean Markus Reuter of Better Taste Than Sorry.

Lucky for me the car was not in red again, but in blue and a nice one if you ask me. I also decided to bring my prototype DIY dolly slider to give it its first real test and to get some nice video footage of the car. I mentioned that I had tested a few of the common and sadly very expensive sliders before and none of them really made me wanna buy one, especially not for the prices they cost. what I built here is just a small fraction of the cost of a “professional” one and as good if not better in most instances, but I will give you an overview and details about it in the near future.

Hope you enjoy the photos and the video, let me know what you think!

Take care,

Teymur.

    Now if you ask me, it looks like your self-made dolly slider does a good job, looks great to me! Hope you post some details on how you build it ;)
