    47" Professional Camera Slider is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just about usable I have used this slider once so far, with mixed results. As long as you don't need to turn the camera while sliding, it's not too bad - I'm using a fairly light camera (Panasonic FZ1000) and a Davis & Sanford FM18 head. Pulling the camera sideways with its neck strap works pretty well. However, if I grab the head's handles and try to turn the head while sliding, there is a lot of slop on the slider, where it also rotates a bit. There's not a close fit where the rails run through the slider's plate. It's also rather light, so I've needed to add weights to stabilize the slider. So, it's usable for some shots, but not really a pro-quality tool.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price Positives: It works well and is the best deal I've found for a slider. Negatives: Considering how important it is for smooth motion that a slider track not be dinged up, I was really surprised at the minimal packaging. It came in a cloth bag inside a standard cardboard box with nothing else. That said, I've used it a couple times and didn't notice any major bumps in the slide action. I used it with two tripods and a tripod head for the camera and also used the feet that come with. I would not recommend using just one tripod in the center to hold it up because it would be very unstable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent, but Fails in Key Areas I have quite mixed feelings about this slider. It's fairly smooth and quiet for the price, and despite the long 47 length, it's very portable. Comes in a nice case with handle for carrying, laying flat with the feet detached. Setup is quick and easy...a couple simply turns to attach the feet to either side of the slider. Attaching a 6D with 50 1.4 (light setup) and started to find some issues. The sliding plate itself definitely wobbles a bit. If you move it directly from the plate you can minimize this, but using an arm, I was getting side-to-side wobbling. Not good. Lastly, attaching this 47 slider to a single tripod basically doesn't work. You can attach it to 2 on either side, but it's just not rigid enough to work on a single tripod. The edges slope down dramatically. This is an issue that would be solved by just using a shorter version of the slider, which I may consider. Also BEWARE - you can't use the Manfrotto 561 monopod head on this slider since the modified version of the 701HDV head on the monopod does not have fluid pan movement. The head just sticks in one location and can't be panned while fully secure. I attached a ball head from another tripod and it worked fine. Not the slider's fault, I know, but thought I'd mention it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1/4 The slider WORKS GREAT. That's not the problem. The problem comes with the 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 adapter. I bought this slider alongside the S6 Benro head. Worked great for the first couple of uses. After that, I put the S6 head on as usual and when I went to take it off, the adapter became lodged within my S6 head. I had to use a vice grip to take it off. This is because the 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 adapter included isn't anchored correctly on the Glide Gear plate. I will return it if the adapter becomes lodged within my S6 head again, it's causing the Benro S6 head to strip a little bit. Not bad for now but definitely something to watch out for. Like I said above, the slider works perfectly fine, I believe the best slider for the price. But having this adapter lodging into my heads doesn't help me out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for its price After checking out all the reviews and forums, I decided to go with this slider. When you enter the DSLR world it comes to say that you can't do without a slider. You can make a slider for 20-40 bucks, but why bother when at this price range you get a pro slider. Its plastic and metal parts are strong. Slides well. Light weight. My only issue is that towards the center it has a slight curve(slight) thats why i gave it a four. For its price it delivers...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely Worth Buying Be warned that this slider does not come with a way to attach your camera to it. It requires a tripod head. This slider works great. The set up was very simple and I was using it within minutes of opening. There's a little bit more resistance than other sliders I've used, but I really like it. If you use this with a tripod head that includes a handle, you will have 100% control over your camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth the price just need a few improvements I just received this product and used it immediately on a project. The highlights of this slider is how easy it is to set up and slips in a case that makes it very convenient while travelling. It does need a couple improvements. 1. Because of its length, the slider exhibits slight bending with a camera like the BlackMagic Design or RED cinema cameras mounted on a heavier fluid head. The other issue I have is the friction noise coming off while I make a fast camera movement.
