Varavon has improved their Slidecam Lite Slider by resolving some minor issues that now make the newest version even better. In the video above I compare their original Slidecam Lite rail design that was equipped with a passthrough 1/4-20″ and 3/8-20″ hole to their newest design which leaves the slider rail as a single solid metal piece with the 1/4-20″ and 3/8-20″ threads at a dedicated base plate for mounting. In the original version, the holes could pose as a problem when the older braking system was sitting low. Another Slidecam Lite update is the placement of the brake. Now, the carrier brake pad is located on the outside of the trolley which is easier to access.
I shot this video in Maui this February with the Sony NEX-7 on a Slidecam Lite.
The Slidecam Lite is one of the smoothest, most affordable, and most portable little sliders on the market. The Slidecam Lite is available in 24″ (2 feet) and 32″. You can find the Varavon Slidecam Lite following the link (click here).
