The Digital Juice SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System (40") allows you to capture quick, smooth short-run dolly shots up to a distance of 34.5" (87.6 cm) using camera rigs with up to 30 lb (13.6 kg) optimum weight. It eliminates the need to carry a full dolly system and track to capture the shots.

With a weight of 7 lb (3.175 kg) and a width of 40" (101.6 cm), the Slyder Dolly is easily portable and can be used in small rooms for quick positioning of the camera with relation to your subject. Mountable on different surfaces such as tabletop, ground-level, or tripod, the system offers smooth camera movement on a horizontal, angled, or vertical axis. By pointing the track at the subject, you can move the camera and bring the items in and out of focus. Eight oil-filled bearings, harmonically matched to the custom C channel, ensure smooth movement of trolley unit over the rails.

Using the trolley plate, you can attach multiple accessories such as articulating arms, LCD monitors, microphones, ball head adapters, quick release plates, and high hats to the SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System. The 2-tiered bearing design of the tracking system allows you to attach the trolley unit below the rails for capturing inverted images. An integrated brake/damping system enables you to park the trolley when not in use and also creates variable resistance for smooth slow shots.

Custom extruded high-grade aluminum construction makes the SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System strong and durable.

    The only reason that I am not giving this 5 stars is because of the fact that the first slider that I received was not adjusted properly - the carriage was less smooth on one portion of the rail, resulting in a slight sticking point. B&H was awesome, and sent me another...

    The second slider was adjusted properly when I received it. What I ultimately figured out is that I could have just kept the first one, and adjusted the bearings on the carriage... I am sort of glad that I got a replacement anyway - it let me know for sure that this was not a defective product - it was just not adjusted properly... It is very easy to adjust the bearings btw.

    The Good:
    When adjusted properly, this is the smoothest slider that I have used! I really like the fact that it can be used on an incline, upside down, and really on any angle since it has bearings on the top and bottom of the rails. This is a huge plus for me coming from a MYT Works slider that could only be used completely horizontally.

    This slider is pretty light weight, especially for the size, is very well made, and feels very solid.

    The rails that the carriage rides on are on the inside of the slider - so they are pretty protected from being scratched.

    Not So Good:
    The bearings are metal, stainless steel I believe, and the rails are aluminum. Metal on metal... This results in a bit of noise, but not too bad when loaded with camera, and traveling at actual speeds that would be used in a shot. I am a bit concerned about the metal on metal creating flat spots with increased use, but this is pure speculation at this point. This is sort of a good and bad topic - being metal on metal, it is super smooth, but it also creates a bit of noise, and again, the wear concern...

    Overall, this is an excellent slider, at a great price, and I highly recommend it. It is super smooth when adjusted properly, is very well built. It seems like it will last a long time. It will work at virtually any angle, and will be smooth while doing so. It also comes with a very nice case.

    This slider does not provide smooth shots. I purchased one, had to return it because the sled rocked in the tracks and the machine-ing of the tracks is not smooth. The slider is bumpy and does not have smooth motion. I tried three sliders, after a fight with Digital Juice and B&H about returning them - and all three sliders were poor quality. I could not get smooth shots with this dolly. The bearings are rocky, and the rails have defects. It is a cheap slider and you get what you pay for. I would not recommend this to anyone. I have tried with EX-1, 5D, and C300 on this slider, and it doesn't matter the weight of the camera - the movement is not smooth - it's sticky and bumpy.

      Great product at a great price. Quality is just as described. The glide is smooth and quiet. Still need to order the high-hat to mount my tripod head and Sony Z5u video camera. As usual, B&H does it best!

          Comments about Digital Juice SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System (40"):

          If you are looking for a small slider dolly that won't break the bank this is an excellent choice. I encourage all to stay away from friction 'sliders' that merely run on plastic pads that ride on a metal rail as it will not be as smooth as you'd like and wear will only make it worse. The DJ slyder runs very smoothly right out of the box. The carriage can experience some bumps but once you get used to how to move it along the rail and make sure it's seated properly before starting a move this is a very smooth dolly that can add a lot of production value to your shots. Essential accessories are the tripod head adaptor, a small flat based tripod head and the leveling legs. If you'd like to do dolly inward and pullbacks with easy setup then the hi hat and a bowled head are also a good idea. While c stand adaptors are available I've found a sturdy tripod holds the 40' dolly mounted in the center.

            I've had opportunities to use many comparable products in the same price range and this one is my favorite. It produces a very smooth shot every time and the friction can be adjusted to help achieve the desired speed of your movement. For the price, you won't be disappointed. You'll definitely want the adapter accessory. Not sure why they don't include it to begin with.

              I had high hopes for this thing and for the past few months and i've been trying to give it the benefit of the doubt but alas, I cannot . this thing sucks.

              In theory its great. i love the design concept but it falls short in execution.

              Aluminum. Light weight, yes, but it dents super easy so you get uneven tracking shots, even if you sand out the dents with super fine, 400 grit sandpaper, which you will probably have to do.

              metal wheels on a metal surface? forgot about using on quiet interviews unless you go REALLY slow.

              The sliding piece that you mount a head to can't be tightened enough so it doesn't get loose when using anything more than just a camera. Cheese plate, rails, follow focus? Nice try buddy, but you'll have to keep hard pressure on the slider so it doesn't rock side to side or back and forth.

              I should've known better.
              Can't use this on pro jobs and expect usable quality.
              If you're gonna go cheap, go cheaper than this, its simply not worth the headache.

                      Pure garbage. Perhaps I got a defective unit. If that was the case, then Digital Juice should have been more helpful. They have no number to call for technical support, only a slow-to-respond email service which just kept me running in circles. So I took it upon myself to try and fiddle with the unit seeing if I could get it to work properly. I've concluded that the issue is with their slyder dolly is in their bearings. They are not smooth. It seems like they should be right out of the box, but when you actually mount a camera rig (or even camera by itself) the shots are wobbly, more so the quicker you move the dolly along the rails. I could hardly get a smooth shot moving it very slowly. I expect that when you lay down almost half a grand for a slider, you get smooth shots. I did not and therefore I cannot give this product anything but 1 star. I'd give it zero stars based on their "customer service" if I had the option. Terrible product for what you pay and I'm not impressed with the company making it. First return I've ever made to B&H. PS - my homemade slider I built before buying this one was superior.

                      The is a great slider, but it is very noisy for most indoor shoots that are recording audio. I purchased this slider mostly to shoot music video's with so the noise that it generates is not an issue. This slider would have gotten 5 stars if it were silent.

                          After extensive research and limited pockets, I was lucky enough to stumble across this SlyderDolly. I'm using it for a short film I'm working on and it works very well with two tripods. I mount my Canon 5D on the slider with a Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head with Flat Base. It works like a charm.

                          When I used it for a tracking shot on a table, there was a wobbly motion... but nothing that couldn't be taken care of with some form of weight (sandbag, etc.). I didn't have anything on me at the moment and I still managed to get a steady tracking shot.

                          Thumbs up for it's functionality... especially at this price range... a steal!

                            I have been looking for a slider for a while.
                            Finally I settled on the SlyderDolly, this is an excellent slider, at a great price, and I highly recommend it. It is super smooth when adjusted properly, is very well built.

                              Great movement. Durable build. Great carry case included. Noisy slide however. You would not be able to use it in a quiet setting while recording audio.

                                40" Slyder is well made and provides smooth movement even with heavier cameras. With a 20 lb. broadcast camera on a high-hat, I found it easier to use and more stable than a Kessler slider I had rented. A fast move is noisy however. In an quiet sound recording situation you need to slide slowly and carefully to not hear the noise of the rollers. The 36" sliding range is relatively small compared to other models, but on the plus side it is very compact and easy to transport. And that range is still very effective in many situations. The leveling legs accessory provide a very stable platform even for a large broadcast camera with Sachtler Video 18 head on the high-hat (another accessory). We used it in a meeting room situation placing it on a small folding table that made it easy to quickly move the set-up from one part of the room to another -- and it put the camera at just the right height. We've also used the slyder with the C-Stand adapters, but I was a bit disappointed that even with top quality C-Stands the set-up had some wobble -- it wasn't unusable, but you had to operate with care. It may be okay with a lightweight DSLR, but I would not suggest using the tilting function of the C-stand adapters with a heavy camera and high-hat -- just too much torque for that. Also, even with the shortest Avenger C-Stands available, the lens height is too high for many sit-down interview scenes with the camera on a high-hat. Apple boxes would be a better(but more cumbersome) platform. If you need to execute no-compromise, Hollywood style moves and have the time and crew available to set it up, there are better slider options available. But the DJ Slyder is a good value and can add some easy to acheive production value for documentary, small crew, and on-the-go projects.

                                  This slyder is so easy to use and so smooth. I spent alot of time doing research on slyders and was recommended this one and I am so glad I made this purchase from BH!

                                    Smooth slider. Well constructed. There is noise if you intent to record audio while shooting and sliding the camera. I rely a lot in this Brand name. The sad part was when I went into the webpage of DJ and saw a refurbished 64" at the same price i paid for this new 40".[$] is a little bit price but once you get the slider with the bag and begin using it you will like it.

                                        I have been sitting on buying a dolly slider for a while now. My main goal has been one of the Kessler models (sadly, not available on B&H) and their amazing motorized control systems for long exposure stuff. But, I needed something simple... now, and for less than $3,000. A lot less. Finally I settled on the SlyderDolly. So far, very pleased. The carry case/bag that comes with it is more than adequate, and the dolly itself is excellent. Nice design, quality build. The description mentions being able to tighten up the bearings for slower movements. This works fine, but not perfectly. You do get a bit more noise when you do this. Problematic if you are shooting interviews in a smaller room. But, if you keep them loose, it's virtually silent. I plan to keep them loose and simply work carefully. For around $400 it's not worth complaining about.

                                        I look forward to using this indefinitely. Even if I upgrade to another higher end kit this will continue to serve as an extremely valuable tool on any shoot.

                                          The only reason that I am not giving this 5 stars is because of the fact that the first slider that I received was not adjusted properly - the carriage was less smooth on one portion of the rail, resulting in a slight sticking point. B&H was awesome, and sent me another...

                                          The second slider was adjusted properly when I received it. What I ultimately figured out is that I could have just kept the first one, and adjusted the bearings on the carriage... I am sort of glad that I got a replacement anyway - it let me know for sure that this was not a defective product - it was just not adjusted properly... It is very easy to adjust the bearings btw.

                                          The Good:
                                          When adjusted properly, this is the smoothest slider that I have used! I really like the fact that it can be used on an incline, upside down, and really on any angle since it has bearings on the top and bottom of the rails. This is a huge plus for me coming from a MYT Works slider that could only be used completely horizontally.

                                          This slider is pretty light weight, especially for the size, is very well made, and feels very solid.

                                          The rails that the carriage rides on are on the inside of the slider - so they are pretty protected from being scratched.

                                          Not So Good:
                                          The bearings are metal, stainless steel I believe, and the rails are aluminum. Metal on metal... This results in a bit of noise, but not too bad when loaded with camera, and traveling at actual speeds that would be used in a shot. I am a bit concerned about the metal on metal creating flat spots with increased use, but this is pure speculation at this point. This is sort of a good and bad topic - being metal on metal, it is super smooth, but it also creates a bit of noise, and again, the wear concern...

                                          Overall, this is an excellent slider, at a great price, and I highly recommend it. It is super smooth when adjusted properly, is very well built. It seems like it will last a long time. It will work at virtually any angle, and will be smooth while doing so. It also comes with a very nice case.
