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!

                Just bought this large slider for my DSLRs, the Glidetrack HD in its 5 feet length. At first I thought I made a mistake, it was too long and difficult to carry around. But after my first shoot with it, it proved to be the perfect tool, as long as you're not wandering in the bush with it. It's better with a 2 tripods set up, way more stable, considering its length and weight, though. The slider by itself is very smooth, and this HD version accepts large camera set-up. And I used the last inches of the 5 feet travel.

                  Although I did enjoy the length of this product, once I hooked the redrock shouldermount and canon s10 up to the Glidecam it was not smooth at all.

                    Perfect for DSLR and medium size cameras. It's really easy to setup and use. The dolly movement is smooth and well controlled. Best used with two tripods, one on each end.

                      I use this as a relatively cheap alternative to a dolly, I find it works for 90% of my dolly needs (push ins, short trucks, etc). It's lightweight but sturdy, supports my EX1 rig with ease. It's amazing how much production value a slider will give your project.

                        Only thing about it, that I don't like is that it is a little loud, but other then that you can get some really GREAT shot with it!!!!

                        Comments about Glidetrack HD - 5 ft (1.5m):

                        I use this with my Canon 7D, Redrock Captain Stubling Kit, Redrock Tripod Baseplate, and a 701 fluid head (a fair amount of weight). The track itself is extremely sturdy, however the moving plate slides on a type of teflon or plastic skids. I thought there would be some ball bearings that make the plate zoom back and forth, however, there is not. This does not affect the functionality, but it does take some practice getting used to.

                        Also, I would suggest buying some quick release plates to quickly attach and remove the track from your tripod.
