Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

Ended up purchasing the Shark Slider from Camera Motion Research located in N.C. Should be here in a couple of days. They gave a $25 discount.

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

Any reason as to why they gave you a $25 dollar discount?

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

I posted a question to users on another forum and they read it. I guess they want my business.

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

Arrived today. Very high quality materials and construction. Very quiet. Much, much smoother slides than my other sliders. Will be testing it out next week.

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

anything further on this slider? Looking at it myself ...

How do you think a Sony EX1R would do using it?

It's awesome. I've got half a dozen. Love em. Should be fine on the EX1. Buy it and don't look back.

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

After using the Shark slider for a little over two months I am still loving it. I got mine from the only U.S. distributor Shark Slider. Fast shipping and I have yet to have any need for support. I hear there are some intimations out there so beware.

Re: iFootage Shark Slider S1

Have seen a few imitations (I think) .... Gear Contact is where I have been looking ..... its a direct link through iFootage

Can this be flat mounted to a tripod without a head ?...
