First shoot with new GlideTrack Hybrid

Howdy...

Just bought a new GlideTrack Hybrid. It arrived the evening before a shoot I thought I'd use it on, so this video was shot after just taking it out of the box. The slider footage is shot with a 5D and a Manfrotto ball head.

FYI: This was a budget shoot, with available light and less than 90 minute to get it done. I think the slider really added a touch of class :-)

Thoughts?

Very nice work ben,
Was that shot entirely with the slider?
Thanks,

Well, not the non-sliding shots, but all the slider shots were shot with the slider...

Re: First shoot with new GlideTrack Hybrid

I've been extremely impressed with the new hybrid carriage that just came frim Glidetrack.
I've been using it with my Canon XF300 - and for such a heavy camera, I was able to make smooth tilts as well as pans during a slide with no snagging or jerking from the bearings.
That wouldn't have been possible with the old bearings.
