DIY Slider

Alastair, I really like your DIY slider.

I may be very interested in ordering one. My question is will it accommodate a Canon H1?
Assuming I have a heavy duty tripod.

Hi Hank,

Sure, H1 should not be a problem. I now ship the Glidetrack with both quarter twenty AND three eigth threads and studs so that you can cover all options.

Fixing the Glidetrack

Hi Alastair,

Just received my Glidetrack today, thanks ! Looks and feels good. I am fixing my FX1 directly onto the Carriage Mount screw and I am fixing my tripods - a Libec H38 and TH650 - by their quick release plate screws into the 3/8th screw thread on the Glidetrack.
However I note that your Velbon head sits on the Carriage Mount - how it's attached I can't work out - but I don't see anyway of getting the Libec heads to do the same. Not sure if this is much of a problem or not and any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks again for your efficient despatch of the Glidetrack.

Thanks for the call, Alastair - very thoughtful and helpful. I think a little tripod head, such as you suggested, will improve things considerably. As it is the Glidecam works brilliantly with the little Sony A1.
Cheers,
Mike
