Glide Gear GEM 235 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a dual-rail, belt-driven design, the Gemini Camera Slider from Glide Gear allows you to capture slides up to 38" with a slider that's only 23.6" in length. It accomplishes this feat by, essentially, pulling the rails of the slider along with the camera carriage as it moves. To take advantage of this functionality, the slider must be mounted on a tripod, as this allows the bottom set of rails to travel through the center mounting plate. When used on a flat surface or at ground level, using an included set of detachable feet, movement of the bottom rails is restricted, and the Gemini functions as a typical slider.

The Gemini supports a maximum load of 11 lb, with an optimum performance coming from loads weighing up to 6.6 lb. Additional features include a built-in handle easier angle adjustment and leveling when using a ball head, a built-in spirit level, and a tension-adjustment knob with locking feature.

    Glide Gear GEM 235 reviews

    Gemini Camera Slider (23.6") is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never have I reviewed my purchases... But since there are no prior reviews and I did a lot of research before making this purchase, I thought I owed a review to my peers.This is a real slider and excellent value. So many that I looked at both online and the local camera store, are cheaply made with lower quality materials and poor craftsmanship. Though on the shorter side, it is long enough for attractive slides, and very rigid and smooth. It was a little heavy for the ball head on my tripod, but that problem was easily fixed, and speaks to the quality of the build.I could go on, but bottom line is this is the best built slider I've seen in the sub $ range, it operates VERY smoothly and has a well made carrying case. I imagine that it will provide many years of service.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great. Don't get this. Invest in a ball bearing system. This is a friction based system and not very smooth. In addition to that, the rail shifts as you at the half way point, which is easily seen in footage. The shake is pretty visible. As cool as the idea of this is, it's not a smooth glide.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Very smooth. Great quality for the price. It works great on level surfaces, but if you need elevation you will need a tripod. It doesn't come with one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Great LITTLE slider. I used this with small HD video camera on a corporate video shoot and it was perfect to add some nice mostly smooth movement to shots that would otherwise be limited to garden-variety tilts and pans. This is not a super beefy slider for heavier cameras. But, it is nicely built, compact, portable, relatively inexpensive and pretty awesome slider.
