  • 1Description

The Varavon Slidecam LITE 486 is a camera slider designed to support loads up to 33 lb (15 kg). It measures 19.1" long and features a carriage with three steel roller bearings for smooth and quiet motion. The slider track incorporates three sets of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes, allowing you to support it in the center or at both ends. Two removable height adjustable legs are also included for using the slider on the ground. The legs provide height adjustment for leveling, and are articulated, allowing you to adjust them for uneven surfaces.

The slider carriage features a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting screw with a large thumb wheel to tighten down available flat base heads. A friction break mechanism is used to apply tension or lock the carriage in place along the rails. The carriage incorporates a built-in bubble level that allows you to confirm the level of the track. The included oil seals are used to clean and oil the chrome plated track for smooth sliding. Included with the slider is a carrying case for transport or storage.

    Varavon SL-LITE486 reviews

    Slidecam LITE 486 (19.1") is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect slider I am using canon 70d and I checked many sliders but this is the best, very stable, very smooth

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from narrow and easy to pack could use a couple of improvements very smooth sliding action, no wobble, very sturdy but a bit on the heavy side for such a narrow slider (I was looking for maximum portability) also, would be nice to have some kind of leg attachment scheme that did not require screwing them in every time, perhaps folding legs (and ideally would allow attachment of wheels for dolly like shots but that is just wishful thinking) otherwise very pleased with this slider, easy to pack, nice and narrow and very solid construction, quality materials

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 19.1 I use this with a Slik 808 ball head and Canon 7D or 7D Mark II. One of the things I like the most is the shorter length. I've been looking for one that is more portable and this 19.1 seems to fit the bill perfectly. It even fits inside my SKB (similar to Pelican 1510) carry on size hard case which is amazing. It also seems to be constructed well, I like the case, etc. The only downside I could find was that at times while sliding it can hit a couple of not-so-perfectly-smooth spots. However it seems that if I run it back and forth a couple of times quickly it goes away. I don't really feel it is much of a sacrifice considering this isn't a really expensive slider. Not to mention I feel that most glitches in smoothness are user error not slider issues. I'm extremely happy with it. At this point I'm giving it 5 stars.
