  • Ideal for DSLR Video

As with all Glidetrack camera sliders, the Hybrid offers a sturdy and affordable alternative to more cumbersome dolly tracks, giving you the power to create smooth, Hollywood-style tracking shots. But this slider brings improved levels of smoothness to your camera movements by combining both traditional Drylin self-lubricating bearings with individual roller bearings. Unlike typical roller-bearing systems--which use dirt-attracting grease and noisy metal bearings--the Hybrid's specially designed rollers utilize an open architecture that's self-lubricating, dry-running, and can be easily swapped out or disassembled for cleaning. Cleaning is also easy: simply hold the parts under tap water or a quick blast of air--no tools required.

The unit's newly designed rubber feet are not only adjustable, but allow for shooting on inclines, uneven ground, and even upside down. Whether attached to a tripod (via the 1/4" or 3/8" mounting threads) or resting on a tabletop, the Hybrid makes the most of its simple, industrial-grade design to deliver smooth-as-glass motion. Its wide rails and heavy-grade construction make it ideal for medium-to-large DSLR/camcorder rigs using rod support systems, bringing a high-end look to productions large and small.

Incorporates both sliding AND roller bearings
Industrial grade rail made of hard anodized aluminium
Use with a single or double tripod setup, or standalone on its custom-made scratch-free feet.
Requires 4-5 times less force to move than the traditional Drylin liners.
Open architecture design uses individual, greaseless, self-lubricating plastic bearings and liners, which are quickly and easily swapped out if required.
Optimal performance ensured as the carriage can be taken apart, flushed, or blown clean then be ready for shooting in no time.
Adjustable high-grip, nonmarking rubber feet quickly compensate for uneven ground when shooting.
Can be used for a huge variety of shots, including: horizontally, vertically, on inclines, even upside down!

          Comments about Glidetrack Hybrid - 20" (0.5m):

          I had no previous interaction with this product before i purchased it. I took it to one shoot and it was not as easy to manuver and as smooth as i was hoping it would be. seems like a solid product, well build, but its functionality was not overall what i had anticipated. if i bought from Glidetrack again, i would try another product.

            Comments about Glidetrack Hybrid - 20" (0.5m):

            As a wedding videographer, the 21" GLIDETRACK HYBRID is a perfect fit for my quick run-n-gun shoots. I keep it mounted on my tripod most of the times, and at any time I can pull a smooth slide. At the same time, I can quickly unmount the slider and sit on the ground for some quick low slide shot. I have a manfrotto quick release place mounted between the tripod and the 21 GLIDETRACK HYBRID. Stroingly recomment this baby!
