3/8 Female to 1/4″ Male Thread

If you've picked up the Konova Slider and looking for a cheap way to mount your camera directly (no fluid head) this 3/8" to 1/4" male thread adapter is exactly what you need. The Konova only comes with a 3/8" stud and if you can't get around to a heavy duty fluid head, this could suffice temporarily. The only problem I can see though is being able to position the camera angle.

If angle is of importance and you're not the type to do much panning while sliding, the Opteka is a pretty heavy duty ball head on the cheap. Unlike tiny ball heads, this one shouldn't have the same problems with vibration.

    Emm, actually the adapter on your original post is the correct one as the pistol grip has a 3/8" screw below it, and the receiving mount on Indislider's carriage is a 1/4" hole.

    So the adapter I need is a 3/8" hole to 1/4" screw.

    By the way, the Konova Slider just arrived yesterday and man that thing runs smooth! Still haven't figured out the way to tighten the friction yet but will read the manual more later. It's night and day compared to the $99 slider, though it does cost 3 times as much to be fair lol. Thanks for sharing!

    Yep just found this recently on ebay too.

    Couple of months ago I bought a used indislider mini from forum and a new sunpak pistol grip from Indisystem, and I can't seem to mount them together. The pistol grip below has a 3/8" screw while the slider carriage has a 1/4" hole. I emailed Indisystem like 5-6 times asking for solution and get zero answer. Their customer service is far from decent, unfortunately.

    Sorry for the rant. Anyway. was thinking this adapter might be the key....

    Do you have any experience using indislider mini and pistol grip or do you just use the WF717 fluid head?
