Doubling as both a slider and shoulder brace, the Glidetrack Shooter HD - 20" (0.5m) brings high-end polish to run-and-gun video productions. Designed as a sturdy and affordable alternative to more cumbersome dolly tracks, the Shooter HD gives you the power to create smooth, Hollywood-like tracking shots as well as stable handheld footage. Whether attached to a tripod (via the 1/4" or 3/8" mounting threads) or resting on its two scratch-free feet, the Shooter makes the most of its simple, industrial-grade design to deliver smooth-as-glass motion.
When handheld shooting is required, the entire lightweight unit transfers easily from tripod to shoulder, its dual handgrips pivoting downward for two-handed support. A soft shoulder pad adds comfort and friction to keep shots stable and secure, aided further by a removable center handle. With its wider rails and heavier-grade construction, the HD model is ideal for medium-to-large DSLR/camcorder setups using rod support systems--which means accessories such as monitors, matteboxes, and audio equipment can come along for the ride.
Doubles up as a shoulder brace for 5D, 7D, GH2 and similar DSLR-type cameras and larger camcorders.
Adjust from floor-mounted slider, to tripod-mounted slider, to shoulder support in seconds!
Hand grips also act as levelers for uneven surfaces. They can be adjusted without tools in a fraction of a second--just press the button and turn, then release to lock!
Handles can be adjusted in an instant to whatever position you like using one hand. For standard Glidetrack sliding mode just flip handles up in line with the track, and you're set to go!
By using two tripod heads, you can perform glides at an angle. Try that with a traditional dolly!
Includes central handle that can be added/removed quickly to offer an even greater degree of flexibility when in shoulder mount mode. When not in use, just drop it in your pocket!
By mounting your Glidetrack at one end, you can do pseudo crane moves on the fly.
The carriage can be locked in position using the small adjuster on the side of the carriage.
Rear foot locks in behind your shoulder to brace/triangulate against. Fits easily in your luggage for transportation/travel.
