E-Image ES-70 overview

  • 1Description

Create cinematic camera movements with the ES-70 27" Carbon Fiber Slider from E-Image. The slider may be used in multiple modes of operation and can support up to 15 pounds. It features a flywheel belt-drive system, offering adjustable resistance via a squeeze mechanism at the top of the flywheel. There's an included crank that can be used the traditional way upon removal of the flywheel. For tripod and stand usage, there are standard 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads on the bottom as well as a 5/8" stand mount receiver on each end.

The included outrigger feet are individually adjustable for leveling the slider evenly on different surfaces. The camera mounting platform is a large 5 x 5" and has a bubble level, and the tripod mount plate (underneath the rails) is 5 x 6", for sturdier tripod mounting. The slider also supports an optional motion-control accessory that will let you take advantage of the smooth belt drive for time-lapse shooting.

    E-Image ES-70 reviews

    ES-70 27" Carbon Fiber Slider is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Going Strong I've had an ES70 for about a year now. I've had to adjust the belt once or twice as it wears in, but otherwise it works great for me. I've also got it hooked up to a motor that I got in a kit, which makes movements super-smooth, but most of the time I just use it with a flat head and pan handle, and adjust the handwheel counterweights for resistance. Highly recommended if you have short slides, but make sure to take care of that belt!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's pretty good for a normal DSLR camera by itself I bought this over a year ago for my GH4 setup, and I was happy with it at first. I fiddled with the dials and the counter wheel to adjust the resistance, and when it was just the camera/lens the slider gave pretty good results. When I say pretty good, that's just what I mean...so the results weren't great, they still had some bounce to it, and it was difficult to get seamless sliding action. Now that I use an Atomos Ninja Flame to record to, the extra weight just makes the bounce worse. Now given this only supports up to 15 lbs., it feels like it handles even less, and forget about using a matte box and rails attached to your camera. You should have the slider mounted to two tripods or stands to get the most steady results, but let's be honest...it's kind of ridiculous looking having a short 27 slider on two tripods/stands...plus it takes up a lot of room and is difficult to get it perfectly level between stands. Lastly, one of the rubber feet keeps randomly popping off despite my best efforts to glue or tape it to the metal screw, yes I could probably replace it, but I'm tired of always having to replace parts on gear when I barely use that piece of equipment that often anyhow. Also, the rod that goes between the counter wheel popped out one day, releasing tiny ball bearings and washers that I can't put back in. So now the counter wheel cannot be adjusted. I'm selling mine for a fairly cheap price, which is disappointing since I bought it for over $500 and barely got any use out of it. I will definitely not be recommending this to anyone, and suggest looking into a better quality slider.
