Is the slider carriage from the Glide Gear DEV-1000 compatible with this rail, and vice versa?

They are not. These sliders are not interchangeable with their parts.

question

Is it possible to use a Magnus VT-400 head with this slider?
Asked by: Anonymous
I recommend two tripods with the longer sliders - when I used one in the middle with a mounting plate larger than the VPH-20 I had a significant amount of leaning which results in a 2 to 3 degree slant in horizontal plane. Moving the slider with two tripods is a pain, but much more stable and keeps horizontal plane as desired.

question

The spec sheet says that the DEV 470 works best with loads under 6.5 pounds, but I am wondering how it really fairs in practice. Would a D5300 with a Nikkor 50mm 1.8G and a 502HD head (total of 5.5 pounds) be too heavy for it? Or should I go with a lighter head?
Asked by: Anonymous
I think you should be fine. Personally I tend to only use it for perfectly straight slides that are parallel with the action and almost never use a tripod head. When I do one that has a bit of weight to it is better.

question

The spec sheet for DEV 470 says that the slider works best with loads under 6.5 pounds, but I am wondering how it really fairs in real life situations. My rig will be around 5.5 pounds (D5300, Nikkor 50mm 1.8, and Manfrotto 502HD head). The heaviest item in my rig is the head, should I go with a lighter head, or will the slider be able to handle 5.5 pounds properly?
Asked by: Rovan D.
Between 5 and 6 pounds seem to be the right weight for this slider. Only once I placed close to 7 pounds on the slider and it didn't bend or anything like that but the slinding took some extra pushing.

question

Do I need a pan/tilt head to mount my camera on the slider, or can I just mount the camera on directly?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, you don't need to use a head. There's an adapter included that will accommodate a direct mount of your camera. However, not using a head means the camera will sit flat against the rail. No way to aim it. I would advise against a direct mount because there's no flexibility. On the flip side, you'll want to use a very lightweight low-profile head because this slider can't handle much weight. A tall or heavy head will have too much leverage and not allow the slider to glide freely enough for a smooth shot.

question

Can you mount this on a tripod?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unless it is a set up shot I have an assistant hold one end steady on one tripod as I hold the other and slide the camera. It is possible to mount it to a tripod, however, as a fulcrum, the angle will tilt. using two-tripods makes it more steady. I use this method with commercial work, however, with weddings, I don't have time to mount, change, remount, and go.
