Varavon SlideCam EX PLus overview

  • 1Description

The Varavon SLIDECAM EX Plus 1000 Camera Slider is a 3.3 ft long slider with removable balancing legs. For surfaces not wide enough to support the legs, you can remove the legs and sit the slider on its feet, which are shaped like spinning tops. The slider's width is 3.5 inches, wide enough for the slider to be secure on its top-like feet and to not easily flip over as you slide a mounted rig. Maximum load capacity is 44 lbs. Ruler markings along the length of the slider will help with slides that would benefit from precision. A bubble level integrated into the top plate will help determine how evenly the slider sits. The top plate features a 1/4" screw and accepts any fluid head with a 1/4" thread and also accepts cameras directly. The slider weighs 9 lbs; lightweight, but also heavy enough to be even more securely positioned on a surface.

    Varavon SlideCam EX PLus reviews

    SLIDECAM EX Plus 1000 Camera Slider is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good construction, average performance I bought this product hoping that it would be a significant step up from my $20 home made slider and a solid investment to last me for the next year or so. Out of the box the build is solid and feels quite good to handle, however at first it didn't slide as smoothly as I had hoped. I thought it might have to be worn in for a while, so i gave it the benefit of the doubt and went back to the excitement of finally owning a proper slider. I noticed it had two screws below the slider plate, I had no idea what they did as the package did not come with instructions nor could I find any details on Varavons website or through anywhere else for that matter. One of them also came bent and is only able to screw partially in place. After several months of use it did improve, but the change was minimal; it's very jerky and doesn't have a consistent slide, often it hits little jerks as if the wheels are out of alignment, and it shows in the footage. You can get rid of this temporarily by sliding it back and forth 10 or so times... but it's a constant issue. As for the actual performance aside from that, I can't say its much better than my home made one; its often difficult to get a smooth, consistent slide. I'm sure it would do better if it had a motor, but I think I'd rather save that money to upgrade from this. Also just now looking back at what I should have received, it didn't come with the balancing feet, they could have come in real handy. Overall it's well built with below average performance. Maybe I got a bad batch, I'll take it up with Varavon and try let you know how it goes (Probably should have done this sooner). For now I'd recommend looking elsewhere.
