Varavon SL-V 1000 overview

  • 1Description

The Varavon Slidecam V-1000 Camera Slider is approximately 39" long and features three ball bearing sliding rollers. 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 rough surfaces.

The slider weighs under 6 lbs and supports up to 44 lbs of weight, The slider carriage features a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting screw with a large thumb wheel to tighten down available flat base heads. It features a friction break mechanism that can 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 track is pre-indexed so you can measure and repeat your move precisely. The included oil seal is used to clean and oil the chrome plated track, and you can use the included carry case for transport of storage.

The slider platform rides on three wheels with sealed bearings, and it is captive in the track bed. This allows you to flip the track over and get that inverted shot, without worrying that the carriage will fall off the tracks.
The end caps of the track feature 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes that allow you to mount the included articulating feet, or other available accessories.
The 6mm diameter rails are chrome coated to protect them from rust and corrosion.
The track is light and strong, featuring machined holes that relieve excess weight, and provide additional strength.
The track comes inscribed with a graduated ruler, so you can mark your moves and make them repeatable.
The feet are removable and attach to the track using a large easy to use spin wheel.
The removable feet feature two points of articulation providing 180° of horizontal position adjustment, and 90° of vertical adjustment.

    Slidecam V-1000 Camera Slider (39") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good for the price, few minor issues. This slide is being used by students at a college film program.( I'm a tech there) It delivers what it promisses. It is smooth, and pretty straight farward. The quality of the build is good, excelent for the price. The minor issues are these: 1. needs adjustment out of the box. it's close but you'll probably want to tweek it a little. Once you do it's realy smooth! 2. adjusment is done with a set of loose allen wrenches that will likely get lost as there is no spot/pocket for them in the kit. Also the directions are minimal but it's easy to figure out what needs to be done. 3. the bag barely fits the slide after the legs are attached to the slide.( I don't think anyone would want to seperate them everytime you shoot) In fact you can't fit the slide in the bag with the legs folded in and locked. You have to fold them in and leave them unlocked for the little extra squeeze that gives you. it's not that big of a deal but if you are going to provide a bag for your product it should fit the product. Also you will probably want to get a tripod head for it and that will definetly not fit in the bag. ALL THA SAID, i would still reccomend this slide for anyone looking for one at a decent price. it's a good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Entry-Level Slider I picked this slider for the price and simplicity. It is easy to use since it is basically a single piece of machined aluminum with stainless steel rails and bearings inside. I wanted to experiment with slider shots and I didn't want to invest in a motorized slider. This is perfect for that. It gives me smooth slides (once you adjust the slider head to suit your camera) without breaking the bank. The instructions to adjust the slider head are a bit quirky but there are a couple YouTube videos that explain it very well. I don't make movies or short films so I am far from an expert on this stuff. I create videos for my tech YouTube channel and wanted something that wouldn't be too expensive but worked very well. I am very happy with this slider and would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice quality Well worth the money. Excellent build quality and strong enough to hold a 6d with 70-200mm while center mounted to a single tripod. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality product! I tried out many sliders, such as Konova, Cinevate, and Kessler. Those still have nice quality, but its pricey. This Varavon Slidecam V is way cheaper than those other brands and it also has great quality. Varavon's customer service is awesome too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I would have given it five stars if they would have included a 1/4 post along with the 3/8 one it came with or told me I'd need one in the description. We had to buy another fluid head since most cameras mounting thread is 1/4. We could have gotten the adaptor, but I was frustrated so I just bought another tripod head to be done with it. The slider is smooth and works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I've been using this for my own productions with a Nikon D610 and it has been great! It handles the load of a video tripod head with my rig with follow focus on top. I don't have any complaints, it works well and does what it is supposed to: Smooth slidin'

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I would buy it again. Great product for mid to light weight cams. I use a Sony FS5 on it (5 lbs) and it has no problem. Very smooth and compact for travel.
