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' 80cm length. The camera mounting platform, is equipped with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded screwfor 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 6cmm slider weighs only 4.5 pounds, comes fully assembled with a set of Allen wrenches and a carrying case with shoulder strap.

WARNING! TERRIBLE SLIDER!

By

I bought this slider about 2 months ago and now it is useless to us. The first shoot we had, the nubs on the legs fell off. To Level the slider is next to impossible.. We use Canon 7d(s) and 5d(s) with L series lenses and it is the furthest thing from smooth! We used lighter lenses and it did not make a difference. This slider would be great if there was no weight on it! The slider itself hardly stays on the track without shaking which completely defeats the purpose!! You are far better off with purchasing the DLC Camera Slider which we ended up doing after this one was became useless to us. THIS IS A TERRIBLE PRODUCT and I am warning you as one film maker to the next! I hope this helps whoever is interested in this product.

Great for the Price! - Very Smooth!

By

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. The adjustable legs are great once you have them fully balanced.

Questions about this item:

Clint S  what slide do you recommend for my Sony camcorder?
Andrew R  That would depend on the model camcorder you own. For a small camcorder this unit may be suitable, however larger, professional class camcorders would require something a bit more substantial. Without knowing the model camcorder you're referring to it's difficult to provide accurate guidance.
Clint S  Thanks for showing interest in my question and the brand is the Sony HXR-NX5U, If you could reccommned a slide system for me it would be greatly appreciated.
Joseph S  I am looking to put a slider on the tripod. Would that be possible with this slider?
DENISE L  Yes, as long as the tripod can support the weight of the slider and camera, etc. I have used it on the tripod and it worked fine.
Shopper  What type of slider is this? friction or ballbearing? No info listed on Adorama site. What is the build quality like?
