About Flashpoint

This portable camera slider provides the perfect base for your video tracking and stop motion needs. Constructed from rugged aluminum with a matte black, non-reflective anodized finish, the Flashpoint Slider offers silent, smooth tracking along with flexible mounting options and no-hassle maintenance.

Dual 1cm rails, set approximately 2.5cm apart, ensure vibration-free linear movement along the rails' 100cm length. The camera mounting platform is equipped with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded screw for full compatibility with cameras and ballheads. For convenience, a quick release plate is also recommended. The platform's manual locking clamp holds the carriage firmly in place when necessary and is used to increase or decrease friction for the ideal slide movement.

With its four, individually adjustable legs and non-marking ball feet, the Flashpoint Slider can be placed level on uneven ground or used for tabletop shooting at various heights. For additional height, the ball feet can be unscrewed so the legs can be placed at a right angle.

For convenience, the legs flip up out of the way and lock in place when not in use or when the slider is mounted to a tripod or lightstands via its multiple standard 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 tripod threads. The slider can be placed on a tripod via its center plate or, for even more stability, tripods or lightstands can be placed at either end of the rail. Overhead shooting is easily accomplished via top-positioned tripod threads for mounting the slider camera-side down.

The Flashpoint 100cm slider weighs only 4.5 pounds, comes fully assembled with a set of Allen wrenches and a carrying case with shoulder strap.

Great for the Price! - Very Smooth!

It is probably the best slider that doesn't use barrings. Very smooth if the camera is light enough.. If you use it with a heavier lens it does cause it to stutter.

Garbage

I used the product in the woods to shoot mountain biking and B-roll for some stock footage. The slider was super light and was easy to carry. Unfortunately once you set it up it is truly the biggest piece of Garbage on the market. The slider gets stuck on the rails, the slider consistently has play and is not close enough to the rails giving you a wobbling image. I would not recommend this product to anyone, not even a kid who has a go pro. If you need a slider don't waist your money on this one.

Good for the money

Not as smooth as wheeled sliders, but a good, affordable starter.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can these sliders be combined to make longer track?
CHRISTOPHER E  I haven't tried taking it apart to confirm, but I have looked at it closely for that purpose and it does not look like it can be. There may be a way to jury-rig it, but nothing native it appears.
Shopper  So, can I mount this slider on my tripod that has a 1/2 ball head mount and my 1/2 ball head?
Andrew R  The slider can be placed on a tripod via its center plate or, for even more stability, tripods or lightstands can be placed at either end of the rail via its multiple standard 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 tripod threads.
