Libec ALX Camera Slider Overview

The Libec ALX S12 is a 47" long camera slider that features two integrated 75mm ball bases with flat bottoms, allowing it to be supported by a pair of 75mm bowl fluid heads as well as flat-base heads. When used on tabletop or flat surface using, the slider has a maximum load capacity of 33 lb. For smooth and wobble-free operation, the carriage features eight roller bearings positioned on the rail top and along the sides at angles. A spring-loaded friction knob allows you to adjust slide tension, while a brake knob will lock the carriage in place at any point on the rails. Using a supplied hexagon wrench, you can adjust the pushing force that the ball bearing exerts on the rail.

At each end of the slider, there are 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads and a rosette for attaching various accessories. If you will be using the slider on the ground or tabletop, the slider features built-in legs with height-adjustable feet to accommodate non-level terrain. For compact storage, the legs fold up against the side of the slider, securing in place using thumb knobs. Unscrewing the knobs completely allows you to detach the legs completely and swap out the 47" rail for separately available 15.5" or 32.6" rail lengths.

It has a Capacity of I believe 33 lbs. It has this almost a Fluid Feel to it so it can stop with out that bump at the end. The 28 was only available at NAB. Now in June 2015 the 45 is available so I got that one also. I'm a rental house and they are popular.

question

can i mount this slider on one allex tripod ?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you used just one typical tripod for the Libec ALX S12 Slider it would not be for long. With your first move to one end, your camera would crash to the floor.That is becasue the ALX S12 at 43.5 /110 cm is too long for one typical tripod. You need two stands of some sort for it or use it on a table top. See the two mounts underneath the slider for attachment to confirm this.If you were using the short ALX S8 Slider (28 ), then one tripod would be fine.
