The Smoothy Radius/Curved and Linear Camera Slider Kit from ALZO is a kit comprised of the Smoothy radius and linear curved camera slider basic, a video camera quick release, a universal camera slider brace support with small clamp, a Smoothy camera slider table leg set, and a motor drive kit. This kit can be used for interviews, B-roll videos, and commercial product presentations.
The slider has a 40" run and can convert from curved radius to linear sliding by changing the track attachment to the base beam. It is constructed from a lightweight, rigid aluminum track and allows for 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 thread mounting of camera quick releases plates, except for the basic model. The motor drive automates camera motion with auto-reverse magnets positioned on the track.
ALZO Smoothy Radius and Linear Camera Slider
The ALZO Smoothy Radius and Linear Camera Slider is an excellent tool for interview and B-Roll video, adding talent-centered camera motion; it is also very useful for 'A' camera in commercial product presentations. The slider has a 40 inch run and can replace time consuming track and dolly for many shots. This slider easily converts from curved radius to linear sliding by simply changing the track attachment to the base beam. The slider is constructed from a lightweight, yet rigid aluminum track that mounts to a base beam with thumb screws in either curved or straight. The stainless steel nylon wrapped bearings assure an ultra smooth action and very long life. The slider camera bed allows for 1/4 inch x 20 or 3/8 inch x 16 thread mounting of camera quick releases plates; with the exception of the basic model, a camera quick release is included. For best results, we recommend using a Pro video tripod with a load capacity over 5 pounds, like the ALZO Pro-Pod V. Another support option is to use 2 light stands screwed into the ends of the slider, which is the most stable slider mount. For the ultimate lightweight and rigid camera sliding, we recommend adding the ALZO Camera Slider Brace Support to a tripod. The slider can also be placed on a table or any flat surface by adding the ALZO Slider Table Leg Set accessory; this is a stable solution, but height adjustment is more difficult. The load capacity for the Smoothy Slider is up to 3 pounds of camera weight. The center tripod mount includes 1/4 inch x 20 and 3/8 inch x 16 threaded mounting holes. In addition, the base beam ends include 1/4 inch x 20 and 3/8 inch x 16 threaded mounting holes on the bottom. These mounting holes allow for attaching the ALZO Camera Slider Brace Support.
ALZO Video Camera Quick Release
Add this quick release to the ALZO Smoothy Radius Linear Slider for secure camera mounting. Quick release plate is 2 inches x 3.5 inches and includes camcorder anti-rotation pin. Includes 1/4 inch x 20 and 3/8 x 16 camera screws, 2 bubble levels, 3/8 x 16 mounting screw with hex key.
ALZO Smoothy Camera Slider Table Leg Set
When you want to operate the ALZO Smoothy Camera Slider on a table surface, you will need these legs. They attach to the ends of the slider with the included 1/4 inch x 20 thumb screw. Each leg includes 2 height adjusters to stabilize the rig on uneven surfaces.
