    Velbon Super Mag Slider reviews

    Super Mag Slider is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 105.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Velbon Super Mag Slider As one would expect, you get what you pay for. This product is perfectly functional and gets the job done. There is a bit of play in some of the parts but nothing too serious. Depending on the position of the lateral slide, the adjustment knobs can dog pile, making it a rather obnoxious to work with. Another con is the lack of any kind of measuring marks should you be so inclined to focus stack. It is fairly bulky and heavy, but relatively sturdy except at the extreme end of distention. All in all, this is a less expensive devise for accomplishing the same thing a more expensive kit could, though it is a bit of a hammer amoungst scalpels.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must For Macro Photography I've read some negative opinions toward this product in some forums but nobody was saying what exactly was wrong with this product. Well, with a price that's hard to beat, I gave it a try and I feel that's well spent money. I've received it for just a month or so but have taken it with me out on river and my bug shooting studio at home. After about 120 pictures from indoor to outdoor shooting, I will not hesitate to recommand this product to anyone I know. However, this product is not perfect. I had to adjust the nuts on the slide rail to get the best fit. It seem to glide smoother one way than the other and there's a little give at the adjusting nut. For the price I paid, I can live with that.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from One major fault This slider is well made & functions very well. The adjustments on the track rods are precise & there wasn't slippage with the tract tilted down to 45 degrees. The problem I have with it is that it is too flimsy for my gear (D800 + Zeiss macro planar 100mm.) The sliders are visibly bend with the weight of my camera & lens ...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great value I found this slider to be far better than expected, considering that most of the other sliders available were much more expensive and didn't seem to have any significant advantages. It was very easy to set up (under 5 minutes), with the clear instructions. It was very sturdy and held my Canon D5 Mark II tightly. In case anything loosens up, the slider comes with two tools to make adjustments. None were needed in my case. I had the same results on my three, very different tripods (which are necessary for this unit). Operation was simple and the unit was excellent for making fine focus adjustments. The two directions of travel (horizontal and depth) limited irritating tripod adjustments. I give this slider high marks - worth every penny.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful piece of kit One of my real likes is macro photography. I had been making do with moving the tripod and or subject to get things just right so I finally said enough was enough get a set of macro rails. The beauty of these rails are that they can be micro-adjusted in both the forward / back and left / right planes which to me has proved to be a great benefit. They are strong and hold a Canon 50D with 100mm F2.8 LIS macro lens fitted with 3 extension tubes and ringflash at all angles with no problem whilst still allowing me to make micro-adjustments in all directions.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as intended I do some fairly simple macro shots at times and this works great for me. Slider is smooth and quite durable. Able to hold my 1D series camera with ease. Only issue, as others have mentioned, is the knobs are too close together. I sometimes turn the knob that controls lateral movement instead of the one for front to back movement. This is a slight problem when doing shots for focus stacking. I just have to be a little careful and work a little slower. Otherwise does the job well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value. I'm an ex-machinist who's relatively new to photography. I know tools a lot better than I know how to take a good photo. For an amateur (or even a professional), this is a really excellent product. Macro-rails consist of X and Y movable tables - a ubiquitous configuration in the machinist trade. The X axisgoes right and left, the Y axis is towards and away from the operator. The ones on this unit move via Acme-threadedrods and captured nuts. They're well machined and work smoothly, with very little backlash, (slop). The guide-rodsare also smooth. The screw-in guide bushings seem to be made of some kind of high-tech nylon, very cleanly made, and seem to work best when only lightly tightened. A neat feature is that you can separate the top and bottom tables with the supplied Allen wrench. Underneath the top table (Y), there are both 1/4 and 3/8ths-inch threaded holes for mounting just the top table to a tripod. Allowing for both 1/4 and 3/8ths mounts buried where most people will never find them is genuinely indicative of the thought and care that went into product. I think I sound like I work for the manufacturer... I've seen Professional models that are around $500. I have seen a version for $160, but I had a bad experience with them and they no longer exist. To my mind, I couldn't have hoped for a better product for the money. I have a Canon 30D (with a 40D coming via Fed-Ex as I type), and a 100mm Canon macro lens. There's always a chance of getting a defective unit, but sans that, the Mag Slider is a real steal, and can do exactly what I want and need it to do make very fine manual-focus adjustments once I've set things up to be relatively close. The tolerances, fit and finishon the Slider are extraordinarily good for the money, and even good enough for a Professional. There's nothing worse than a tool that doesn't quite do what it's supposed to, You can't get any more basic than the Mag Slider, but it's accurate, stable and easy to use. Expertise: Lots with tools, not so much with photography

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skeptical at first...not any more My current use for this product is what else Macro photography. However I just tried a little Macro video with this piece of equipment, and I have to say I am pleased with my purchase. Now this unit is not the most expensive one out there, but for the price it does a good job. If you have looked at other units and some of the cost for them, you know what I mean. So if you need a low cost slider...Just purchase and, ENJOY.
