Glidetrack HD - 39" (1m)

Product Highlights
  • Heavy Duty Mini Dolly / Slider
  • Produce Smooth Tracking Shots
  • Perfect for DSLR Video
  • Self-lubricating 16mm Rails
  • Anodized Aluminum
  • Setup in Less Than 30 Seconds
  • Light and Strong
  • Supports Cameras w/Rail Systems

The Glidetrack HD (Heavy Duty) brings a high-end look to small- and mid-sized productions. Designed as a sturdy and affordable alternative to more cumbersome dolly tracks, the Glidetrack HD gives you the power to create smooth, Hollywood-style tracking shots. Whether attached to a tripod (via the 1/4" or 3/8" mounting threads) or resting on its two scratch-free feet, the Glidetrack HD makes the most of its simple, industrial-grade design to deliver smooth-as-glass motion. Offering wider rails and heavier-grade construction, the HD model is ideal for medium-to-large DSLR/camcorder rigs using rod support systems, adding an exciting new ingredient to your visual cookbook.

A step above the SD model, the Glidetrack HD provides an even more rigid and stable foundation. Its heavier-duty extrusion makes it perfect for mid-size rigs that may include external monitors, matte boxes or support systems.
Use it with a single or double tripod setup, or standalone on its custom-made scratch-free feet.
The carriage can be locked in position using the small adjuster on the side of the carriage.
Set-up is a matter of seconds, then you're ready to shoot professional grade video from your existing DSLR kit.
By mounting your Glidetrack at one end, you can do pseudo crane moves on the fly.
By using two tripod heads, you can perform glides at an angle. Try that with a traditional dolly!

      Good for the price

      I've used it for a variety of shots from landscape to jewelry. It does what it is supposed to do, but there are no extras.

        As soon as I opened the box containing this Glidetrack track,I knew straightaway that I had a winning product. I have tried it on a Canon 7d and Sony Z7 and I am exteremely pleased by the results. The bearing system provides for a smooth slide and the solid construction adequately bears the above camera's weight.

            Running the glidetrack with a HPX-170 and a Letus 35. It works well. Not as smooth as butter, but does the job. Considering you can spend well over $1k on one of these, this performs for the price. I love the fact it breaks down easy and small enough to fit in my tripod bad (with tripod in). I use 2 light stands to support both ends. Overall, I'd would buy again

                What a tool. I suggest every filmmaker get a glidetrack. Minimal set up time with incredible results. really adds that extra element to your footage.

                          This slider is the best in the market, It is smooth, steady on a tripod or two tripods and gives a Hollywood dimension to your filming. Slide, tilt, pan in tandem and you have amazing shots.

                              It takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it you can avoid most of the stutter-stops and create a very smooth-flowing shot.

                              This is not news to most, but this is a heavy product and you need a heavy-duty tripod to handle the weight, especially when your camera is nearing the edge of the track. Otherwise, the tilt caused by the weight shift will ruin your shot.

                              It gets clumsy if you're moving around a lot with just one tripod and you can't take off the track easily. Watch out for walls.

                                I use it with a Canon T2i and it works good with that camera. Its easy to set up to my Manfrotto tripod head and legs. Its made of good quality materials. Its nice and smooth when you get up to speed but its very tricky to start a smooth move. An other thing don't like about it is that you really can't put a larger camera on it. I would love to put my OConnor 2060 on with with my HPX-500 but that would bend it out of shape.

                                  Comments about Glidetrack HD - 39" (1m):

                                  I use this slider to obtain those tracking shots without having to set up cumbersome dolly & track. It can "stick" a little, but with practice you'll get smooth shots every time.

                                    It uses easily because of intuition and is simple.

                                    To shoot a movie, it may be long a little more. I think 1m to be a little short.
