Many of you are now receiving your replacement blocks from Varavon for the Slidecam Lite Slider. To address some questions on how to replace and assemble the new block, I made a quick video explaining the process. The new block features a side break rather than the middle break that sometimes would get caught in the tripod mount holes on the slider.
The only tool I needed for this quick fix was a hex wrench.
Varavon now as a FREE replacement for the Top Block of their Slideam Lite Slider. Check out the Varavon site to see how you can exchange your existing Slidecam Lite Top Block (HERE).
If you use EMS for Shipping (click here), although you pay the $25 shipping fee, you receive a FREE Sling Follow Focus and there is a short delivery time.
When the Standard Shipping method is used (click here), you will pay only a $6 shipping fee, however you will not receive a free Sling Follw Focus and the ship time will take longer.
Varavon is doing the replacement because they now produce an updated and optimal quality of roller for their popular Slidecam Lite Slider.
