4’ Slider by Modern Studio

We are proud to carry this new heavy duty 4’ slider. It travels along the track very smooth and has a 150mm Mitchell swivel base to mount it onto a tripod or, if you prefer, screw on legs so that it can rest on the floor. In addition, it accepts your favorite 150mm Mitchell base heads (O’Connor, Sachtler etc.) to provide excellent camera control.

Easy Rig 2.5 (700N) and Easy Rig 4 Vario (400N)

Easy Rig
We carry two varieties of the Easy Rig system to make hand holding your camera all day easier. The Easy Rig transfers the weight of the camera from the shoulders and arms and places it on your hips. Our Easy Rig 2.5 (700N) can accommodate heavier cameras up to 35 lbs. (like an ARRI Alexa with on board battery, prime lens, matte box, monitor and FI+Z) and our Easy Rig 4 Vario (400N) is designed for lighter cameras up to 21 lbs (like the Red Epic with battery, prime lens, matte box, monitor and FI+Z).

Cineped Rotational Slider

Cineped Rotational Slider
The new 42" Cineped Rotational Slider is more than just another slider, it allows for the usual slider side to side movement as well as pan and arc on a horizontal axis to or from your subject! It is solidly built with quality heavy duty materials so that you can deliver a steady move every time. In addition, the Cineped is super stable up to 6' high and can hold up to 95 lbs of camera on either end as well as up to 650 lbs. at its center! Needless to say, weight limitations are not an issue! Finally, it accepts 150mm Mitchell mount heads, 150mm Sachtler ball heads and 100mm ball heads.
