Varavon SL-LITE800 overview

  • 1Description

The Varavon Slidecam LITE 800 is a camera slider designed to support loads up to 20 lb (9 kg). It measures 31.5" long and features a carriage with three steel roller bearings for smooth and quiet motion. The slider track incorporates three sets of 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes, allowing you to support it in the center or at both ends. Two removable height adjustable legs are also included for using the slider on the ground. The legs provide height adjustment for leveling, and are articulated, allowing you to adjust them for uneven surfaces.

The slider carriage features a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting screw with a large thumb wheel to tighten down available flat base heads. A friction break mechanism is used to apply tension or lock the carriage in place along the rails. The carriage incorporates a built-in bubble level that allows you to confirm the level of the track. The included oil seals are used to clean and oil the chrome plated track for smooth sliding. Included with the slider is a carrying case for transport or storage.

    Varavon SL-LITE800 reviews

    Slidecam LITE 800 (31.5") is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass on this one! I just came off a one month 5D tourism shoot and this slider was rendered completely unusable after one week of use. There is no way this unit can handle the weight of the camera's Varavon recommends. The ball bearing unit repeatedly came loose and had to be retightened on a daily basis and at one point it just fell off completely during location changes. We respect our gear and maintain it daily....... but this slider will never be part of a serious shoot again! Love the weight and it's potential, unless you shoot with an iPhone, I would pass!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this track for use with my RED Scarlet..I needed something lightweight, compact, and durable.. This slider meets all of those needs. It is solid!! I was impressed on how high quality this track was manufactured, its cut from one solid piece of metal. There are no plastic or cheap parts on this slider at all. I have used other sliders in this price range before that have plastic components and they are awful, this track, for the money is the best thing going. Out of the box the bearings were ready to go! The bearings don't catch or get stuck any where and the best part is that the mount actually does not slide off the end of the track.. Meaning you just attached the camera to the slider. and you are ready to shoot. I recommend always having some WD-40 on you at all times just to ensure the track stays smooth. I would recommend this to anyone in the market for a slider under $500

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't ever misplace the quick release plate! God forbid that you would loose the quick release plate because Varavon does not have any replacements. You'll have to buy a whole new head. I tried to get a new quick release for over a year and they never did get one in stock.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Waste Your Money On This ! I bought one of these a while back. It is awful. The slider bearings are constantly losing pressure and require tightening. They customer service is bad. Definitely look into another brand of slider.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great but don't loose the plate! I love the slider (we have an earlier model). It works fine, but one of my students lost the quick release plate for it. I've spent over 4 months trying to get a new plate...from B and H, from Varivon, but nobody can get me one. I guess I'll have to buy the entire head $ Even the factory says they don't have any and they're back ordered.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for someone on a budget I use this for my one man film crew operation on a daily basis. This adds a lot of production value for a very minimal cost. It fits easily into its carrying case and is simple to set up and break down.This slider is probably best for someone using a smaller camera (DSLR, BMPCC, Sony A7s, etc)The slider takes a little bit of practice to perfect. I would recommend the user set up their shot and do a few practice slides to ensure stability and support before filming.If you are looking for a slider under $, this is it.My next step will be to purchase a +$ motorized slider for moving timelapses etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Product for Less Money I film and edit video content for CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and I needed a slider that was portable, but more importantly, smooth, steady and slick. That's why I bought a Slidecam Lite 800, and I wasn't dissapointed. Varavon makes a strong, reliable product that slides true and smooth.Their customer service is also superior to that of thier competitors.

It is made of solid aluminum and has super built quality. I love this product and Varavon's awesome customer service. Thanks to Varavon for making the product!
