    iFootage Shark Slider reviews

    Shark Slider Mini Complete with Soft Backpack is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't recommend this. I purchased the�iFootage Shark Slider Mini Complete with Soft Backpack from B and H and received it about three weeks ago eventhough I placed the order the first week of January. I tried to activate warranty and was unable to. Webpage suggested on warranty card does not exist or will not open. Additionally I have some strong concerns. The motion tilt head wobbles and does not produce smooth movement. The head turns slightly even when locked into place. I can provide video examples of this if needed. Additionally the Moco app is very buggy. The app gives me 'angle errors' and I can find no reason NOR explanation for why this is occuring. Additionally the target mode seems to not function properly. As I set target pan and tilt and the slider for some reason goes to another tilt value. As you can imagine I am very disappointed. Additionally, because its listed as a 'special order' item B&H will not accept returns or exchanges. THIS IS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well, the 2nd unit actually failed as well In the field... very large client... I had pre-programmed moves to make the shoot days more efficient... and it failed. Here is what happened this time (this was my second purchase after receiving one with a bad slider motor): The slide battery dies unusually fast, ok, realized that one of the batteries they sent me was not holding a charge. Ok, put a new battery in (Sony brand) and then the pan/tilt head would no longer allow me to Set A or Set B... so I power cycled both motors, restarted iPhone and still not working. Finally abandoned and just used manually for one whole day. Second day, I was able to get Manual controls to work (still no target control) but even then it would only go at FULL speed and it would not allow me to stop anywhere except the end of the rail. So, I worked around as best I could but NO WAY I am keeping this unreliable garbage.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I want to like it... but lots of issues At first the Target Control wouldn't work - it would just forever say "Preparing" in the iPhone app. Then it said it had a firmware update... so I tried and it stayed at 0%... forever. Finally figured out I could update firmware on the slider and the head by connecting to only one at a time. So, after that I thought it would work. Nope - got worse. This time, the slider motor started to randomly change directions when running and would shutter back and forth severely upon start up or upon stopping. And the head still says "Preparing". I have reached out to the company, but it appears that their support is based in China, so who knows when or if I will hear back. I will update back and give a higher rating if they solve the issue, otherwise, sending it back to BH and get a Rhino I guess, or something else. I love the concept - and the build feels appropriate to me for the price... if it only ACTUALLY WORKED. QC folks... QC!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The second one works... This is to offset a previous one star review. On the first there were issues, but the second one came in and was perfect. The unit is working as I initially hoped it would. The first unit I received had S/N that did not match what was on the box... so maybe BH sent me a return or refurb or something? I asked but they had no answers. And the manufacturer DID respond to me, and offered several ways to try and reset the slider motor until finally concluding it was just a defective motor. So they were helpful and the second unit is working well. If it lasts I'll update to five stars. NOTE - in tests so far, there are times when IBIS causes the image to shake and it isn't the slider. Then on some moves there are micro-jitters that IBIS will actually help with. Have to experiment, but seems stable for most moves. A

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Slider for DSLR or Mirrorless cameras I've used a ton of motorized sliders from Edelkrone, Rhino Camera Gear, Konova and others and honestly for the price this is the best one and it's very hard to beat! I love the modularity of this slider, you can go from small, medium to large in a matter of seconds by adding additional tracks. This doesn't use those horrendous belts like Edelkrone which always wear out and don't provide stable movement. I love that this slider is one of the very few that allows you to do elevator shots, you'll need to get a counterweight to help the motor but it's worth it and gives you a very cinematic shot that you can't do with others. The app is probably the weakest point, the good thing is they are constantly updating it and fixing all of the bugs, It's not perfect, but it gets the job done quickly, efficiently and it's very portable too! Overall i'm very happy with it and my only recommendation is to buy the L Plate to give you double the weight, it's worth it and only cost about $50.00. They should have just included it in this bundle. The only major problem I see is if you're using an Android phone as of writing this there is no support. This only works with iPhone, not an issue for me because I use both but if you don't have an iPhone you can't use it.
