Because it has the longest reach, the 8ft Original Slider™ offers options other models can’t.


The 8ft Original Slider™ is perfect for car shoots. Previously difficult shots are now a piece of cake. And hard-to-get camera angles are suddenly easy. With a locked-off camera mount, you sometimes find yourself trapped. But with the Original Slider™, you can adjust camera positions on the fly.

Perhaps you need to be just a few inches tighter to really sell the shot. Or a couple feet wider for a quick variation. All this fine tuning can be painfully time consuming. And that doesn’t make anyone happy. However, with the Original Slider™, these adjustments are easy.

You might not think that the 8ft Original Slider™ would be the right size for an interior car shot, but it works great. It allows you to start outside the driver door, slide across the steering wheel, continue massaging the console, then the glove box then continue right out the passenger door. Rigging the 8ft Original Slider™ for this application is a snap. Another option is to rig the 8ft Original Slider™ up high. You can suspend it by way of junior mounting pins then under-sling the camera. This allows the camera to slide across the hood or windshield.

Mount the 8ft Original Slider™ underneath a car chassis to get dramatic angles that would otherwise be impossible.

We also have available a motorized unit controlled by a hardwire Preston Micro Force. This rig lets you reposition the camera on the fly for hands-free movement. This is particularly helpful when you need to distance the crew from a potentially dangerous or awkward scene.


Nothing beats the "Original"
