Slider question

I'm looking to invest in a Glidetrack, or similair device...
I've read some goods and bads for most of these systems..

Here's my scenario.
I'm primarily doing wedding videography (single shooter). I'm thinking of taking on a second shooter, and adding the Glidetrack to the arsenal of tools needed for montazes, intros etc.....

Is anybody using these devices with stock lenses and 30P,60i framerates??

I'm afraid of buying a product, and realizing that i should've budgeted for a 35mm adapter.
It's great to watch the demos for slider products, but most of the demos seem to be shot with adapters, with "making the sale" in mind....

I make these sliders and I have some video on the bottom of this page:
Reasonable Priced Sliders . Westside A V Studios

And there are a few more on another page linked from the one above.

All those are shot with Sony EX1 and EX3 and a 5DmkII.

The river shot is the 5D. The others are just standard lenses on the XDcams.

These sliders work very well with Sony Canon JVC or Panasonic standard lenses.

If you have any questions, contact me:

even thought i sell sliders, i would recommend that you invest your money in getting a 7d or 5d first instead of a 35mm adapter. imho a dslr will make more of an impact to your final product than any slider.
