A 42″ (1 metre) slider. This is the stainless steel version that is heavy-duty yet still compact and versatile.
It can take a weight load of 50lbs (22kg).
We at 09 Rentals love this Evo Pro for many reasons; the sturdy rails and the smooth carriage is one, but when combined with the included flywheel it makes every slider move you do a total breeze. No longer will you get camera judder or slowdowns in your slider speed as you try to get that perfect shot. The flywheel helps to carry the carriage with your camera on top from one end to other and makes your end mark easy to hit with a nice feathered stop.
Additionally, take off the flywheel and add the Rhino motion enabling live control, motion control or time-lapse.
As well as including the Rhino Flywheel we also include the Manfrotto 516 head.
Why this head?
This flat-based head is the perfect head for heavy loads, with a load capacity of 29lbs (13kg). This will take our fully rigged Red Epic camera with PL primes.
We provide 2 x monopods for mounting either side of your tripod. This will help stability and bowl slipping.
We recommend 3 options for mounting this slider when using it with a tripod:
- If placing your tripod centrally in the slider then please use the monopods provided for stability either side of the slider.
- Lighting stands can also be used at either end once you have placed the slider on your tripod. The mounting plates have options for both 1/4 and 3/8 studs as well as c-stand mounting.
- For heavier loads we recommend the use of two tripods at each end of the slider which would then be weighted at the bottom with sandbags.
- If you wish to attach this to a mitchell mount we have an attachment for this as well.
This slider does not come with a tripod. We recommend a 100mm bowl tripod that will support both your shooting rig and sliders weight.
A 100mm bowl riser for a tripod head can be supplied if you wish to use a separate head or one of your own.
(When hired with the Miller 55 tripod we will provide a shorter locking nut.)
