The Cinevate 5 ft Atlas 10 Camera Slider with All-Terrain Legs will help you get smooth sliding shots in pretty much all directions and in various styles.
Positioned on a flat or more-so flat surface, it'll get you smooth one-directional glides, and since the glides run on a high-quality ball-bearing system, with enough effort, you can accomplish steadiness across the entire 5 ft distance of every glide. The included all-terrain legs will let you place the Atlas on most any type of surface, even on two large bumpy stones, with one under each leg. The legs resemble spider legs and can spread wide or close in narrow. When wide, at the play of a few knobs, they loosen to compensate for any unevenness beneath them. Once you find the right balance, just tighten them.
The Atlas has 7 tripod-mount plate locations on its underside. The same shots you can get laying the Atlas on a flat surface, can be achieved elevated off of that flat surface -- simply place the Atlas on an optional tripod. You can center it on one tripod, or you can put a tripod under each of its two ends, for more secure support. Whether on one or two tripods, you can choose to position it slanted and get professional-looking slanted glides. And where you point the camera will additionally determine how exotic a shot the slanted glide will produce. If you've got a sturdy tripod, you can choose to mount one end of the Atlas onto it, only one end, and then tilt the Atlas into as vertical a position as possible, and you've got yourself a vehicle for smooth, vertical glides. If mounted the same way -- on one end-point, you position the Atlas horizontally (imagine a fishing rod), you can then slowly swing it from side to side to get very effective panoramic crane shots, especially if you're shooting from an elevated position, like from off of a balcony.
The Atlas will work with any standard 3/8"-16 head. It is made of CNC aluminum and steel and is coated with a non-reflective, black satin anodized finish for a very quality look.
