Featuring 8mm steel rails, the Varavon Slidecam S 900 is a camera slider that lets you add smooth linear motion with loads up to 48.5 pounds. The track measures 35.4" long, just under 2" wide, and features index markings on the top of the rails for precise and repeatable start and stop points. The slider platform rides on three roller bearings for smooth operation, with an integrated brake letting you secure the carriage in place at any point along the rails for locked-down shots or when transporting the slider.

The platform features a 3/8"-16 mounting screw for attaching a ball head or fluid head, with a thumbwheel at the side of the platform used to tighten the head to the carriage. Threaded mounting holes on the at the ends and underside of the track allow for mounting on tripods stands. For ground level or tabletop shots, the slider features a folding leg system with adjustable feet provides leveling and two points of articulation, so you can support the slider on almost any hard surface, smooth, or uneven.

An included rail cleaning device fits snugly on the rails and cleans them of debris, so you can avoid pitting of the rails or track wheels. The included carry bag and shoulder strap allow you to pack up and take your slider with you, making it a completely portable solution.

    Slidecam S 900 (35.4") is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rides on cheap plastic For the money we did we expect, but to see that it slides on a rail with two cheap pieces of plastic, I was not expecting that. The plastic was almost immediately chipped whenwe took the slider off the rail to install the camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Big Improvement Over Friction Based Sliders A year after I started shooting virtual real estate tours for a national reality firm, the company required all videographers to use slider shots in every virtual tour. So, I naturally bought one of the cheapest sliders that I could find at B&H (because B&H don't sell junk). I eventually became proficient using my first friction based slider, but there was always a lot of camera shake on either end of the slider footage, due to that technologies' limitations. I'd been getting more calls for work as the weather has warmed, so I decided to up-my-game a little bit and purchase a bearing based system (Slidecam S 900). I'm really glad that I made the investment and even though this slider is a few inches shorter than my original slider there is more useable footage from every take. Solid construction and very smooth operation. Easy to operate and easy to create professional looking results. The only reason for the 4 Stars is because of this version's 35.4 length - I don't really need the longer Slidecam, but I would probably give it 5 Stars if it's as well engineered as this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product I bought and received it few weeks ago, and first thing I thought was It is really smooth. At this price point, it is definitely the best slider in the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this product June 2014, but it still works as new. It just looks like Konova's, but well, I like it more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good slider The screw/attachment interface isn't the best to use in the field, but overall good slider
