Varavon Slidecam Slider Updates
April 7, 2012


Tweet

Jordan received a replacement Varavon slider and it shows off a few added changes. First, the legs now have it’s own dedicated bag instead of being thrown in with the entire slider. That’s one thing I mentioned when I first received mine. If they all sit in the same bag together you could easily have [...]

Konova Releases 23″ Travel Friendly Sized Slider
February 11, 2012


Tweet
I don’t know exactly when it happened, but it happened. Although i’m a big fan of the Konova slider, I always wished they had a smaller version than 31″. At 31″ inches, that was just a little bit too long to pack in some of my bags when traveling. So recently they just started listing [...]

Motorized JuicedLink Slider Gone Vertical
December 12, 2011


Tweet

Earlier in the week Vimeo member Bagelman showed us his version of a DIY Motorized JuicedLink video slider. I was curious to see if his setup could actually handle a straight up vertical shot, so he’s put together another demo. Yup, sure does go nice and smooth on a straight up vertical climb. [Thanks Gary]

Smallism Video Camera Slider Review
July 18, 2011


Tweet
It looks similar to the Konova and Varavon, but hardly up to the same standards. The bearings are adjustable. I’ve seen these Smallism sliders before, but they were always expecting way too much. Seems like they know where they stand and have finally brought prices down below Konova. Although the feet/legs aren’t anything to brag [...]

Camtree Micro Dolly IGUS Slider with Pulley System
June 21, 2011


Tweet

Roller bearing sliders have a love/hate relationship. Some people love the smooth no friction action, and some people hate the inconsistencies they might get without friction. Thanks for Martin for tipping me off on this review. YouTube member AYFilms gives us a review of the Camtree Micro Dolly. We’ve all seen IGUS Drylin based sliders, [...]

Easier than DIY IGUS – Video Camera Slider
May 14, 2011


Tweet

The Konova Roller bearing slider is still one of my favorite Video Camera sliders, but with demand comes rising prices. The IGUS linear guide rails are no secret and are extremely efficient for the price (Much better than the $99 dollar 80/20 aluminum extrusions). For anyone looking to DIY an IGUS rail as a camera [...]

Olivia talks to Eric from International Supplies about a few of Varavon’s products. One product is the Slidecam Slim slider that is said to hold up to 41lbs (that’s pretty hefty), comes with a Video Head, legs, and travel bag. This new all aluminum Slim Slider will weigh about 2.5kg and be available in 1m [...]

DIY camSlider Project Part I & II
April 20, 2011


Tweet
Looks like a fun little DIY Arduino based motion controlled slider project is unfolding. Starting the platform out with IGUS Drylin W rails and carrier (wider version), and adding in a custom fitted pulley system. My guess is that the programmable controller will eventually be used for Timelapse movements and intervalometer trigger. Part 1 & [...]

JuicedLink – Down with DIY
April 20, 2011


Tweet

JuicedLink is definitely down with DIY and looking out for the budget minded. We were actually setup on one of the JuicedLink DIY brackets for NAB2011 on the main camera, but it’s great to hear pricing is even lower with volume pricing now that they’ve become popular. First starting out with DSLR Cage like brackets [...]

Test Drive SpiderTrax Clone – Korean Dolly
February 19, 2011


Tweet

The original SpiderTrax Dolly is no longer available via PhotographyAndCinema.com, but the Korean company Konova copied the design pretty much dead on. This would be the better alternative aside from making one on your own. Here’s some friends working with the dolly during Valentine’s day. They let the dolly control all the camera movements with [...]

Konova Roller Bearing DSLR Slider – Review
January 18, 2011


Tweet

Ok, I have to keep adding ‘Roller bearing’ to the description of this DSLR slider. Everyone keeps throwing in names like Igus and GlideTrack, but it’s not the same. Those guys don’t use actual ‘Roller bearings’. I know all about the Igus based sliders, and you can find my version on this blog. My current [...]
