I own the 4' version of this one Reasonable Priced Sliders . Westside A V Studios which is made by a DVInfo member/sponsor. I've been very pleased with it.

Re: konova slider

Hi. Yes I think you could! Beware though the bearings have a little noise! Only slight and you can't hear over talking or music, but a quiet clip you could hear.

Thanks Steve, a bit concern now about the noise.

Re: konova slider

Its nothing major, but I presume a clip with no talking and no music would be a very very slight problem with the bearing roll, as I say I only slide with the music or talking over so its not a problem.

+1 on the Konova slider. Haven't noticed the noise when using mine.

Re: konova slider

I just ordered one of these so if it isn't as good as you guys claim I will be blaming you:-) I was considering another Gliderack Hybrid but the Konova is half the price so worth a punt.

Re: konova slider

Well worth it Nigel, I use it all the time now even in church during ceremony its that light to move around, you will need a tripod head with a 3/8 female thread to go the plate.

The standard one just short of the metre one!! Its great! Don't pay extra for the metre one unless you really need it? Cheers Stelios... Steve
