Once the sole domain of the high-end movie industry, a camera slider allows for very professional-looking image capture by allowing smooth and stable horizontal camera movement. This is a must-have effect that adds a ‘polished’ finish to your movie production.
No fewer than seven new camera sliders have been introduced into Kenro’s growing line-up of Sevenoak photo and video accessories. Three are designed for smaller cameras, three are for heavy-duty use, and one is a very clever combination dolly and slider.
Firstly, the three Compact Sevenoak Camera Sliders are designed to assist the user in creating good quality production shots on a realistic budget. They feature a smooth guide rail constructed of heavy-duty, anodised aluminium for vibration-free, quiet panning, giving effortless motion for camera rigs.
There’s a built-in spirit level for ease of leveling up and tension adjustment. The sliders can be attached to a tripod or used standalone, and are compatible with most camera and video heads. They are ideal for use with DSLR cameras or camcorders.
They are quick to set up and have foldable, adjustable feet.
Model SKLS60 is 60cm long, maximum load is 10kg. SRP is £101.94 inc. VAT.
Model SKLS85 is 85cm long, maximum load is 7kg. SRP is £122.34 inc. VAT.
Model SKLS120 is 120cm long, maximum load is 5kg. SRP is £142.74 inc. VAT.
For those requiring a more robust slider for heavier camera rigs, the Heavy Duty Sevenoak Camera Slider range is the perfect solution.
These sliders are made of heavy duty aluminium and feature precision bearings for smooth, quiet action. They can either be used standalone or across two tripods, and are compatible with most camera and tripod heads. They are suitable for use with DSLR cameras and camcorders.
Model SKHD75 is 75 cm long, maximum load is 15kg. SRP is £161.94 inc. VAT.
Model SKHD100 is 100cm long, maximum load is 12kg. SRP is £203.94 inc. VAT.
Model SKHD120 is 120cm long, maximum load is 10kg. SRP is £275.94 inc. VAT.
Finally, the Sevenoak Dolly Slider (SKDS60) offers four smooth-action wheels on a 60cm slider. With built-in adjustable folding feet, it can be used individually as a dolly or a slider, or using the combined features to create some really unique footage. It features heavy-duty anodized aluminium construction, a smooth guide rail with bearings, built-in spirit level and tension adjustment, and has adjustable axles. It can be used on a flat surface or mounted to a tripod.
Maximum weight capacity is 5kg. SRP is £122.34 including VAT.
Says Paul Kench, Kenro's managing director: ''Anyone getting into movie production knows that a slider is a ‘must-have’ piece of kit nowadays. When used well, it can give footage that amazing ‘Hollywood effect’. Sevenoak equipment is so beautifully made, yet so cost-effective. We are confident that these camera sliders will be very well-received.''
