Re: Witch do you think is better?

If you're really loading up your camera rig with rails, follow focus, mattebox, etc, my vote would be for the DJ Slyder. I own one and it does well with moderately heavy camera rigs. If you're just going to use the naked camera on a ball head or something, I think all of them would be fine. The DJ is more expensive once you accessorize it with the necessary mounting solutions.

It will be just camera and ballhead. Thanks!
How does the DJ Slyder work with small loads like DSLR?

Re: Witch do you think is better?

The DigitalJuice model works great for me if I'm really loading it up, but that also makes it less portable and heavier to carry around. If you just have a lightweight DSLR, you don't necessarily need as big of a slider. The DJ slyder works just fine with small loads, but if I had the choice, I wouldn't want to use it if there were other, more compact options.

Re: Witch do you think is better?

Many thanks for info :) As i said, the EX1R with ball head would be the maximum load. So i choosed the new Konova K7 because it`s lighter, has feet more suited for all terrain and... they offer free shipping for Europe. I hope to be a good choise because i still think the DJ it`s better quality...
