The IndiSLIDER mini by studio 4 productions is a low cost 24″ glide track with some serious skills. With a price of around $100, it is a must for the indie filmmakers or even a great second glide track for professionals. The short “Melbourne 7D” that I shot was an example of the IndiSLIDER out of the box.
Set up is only about 5 minutes. The only thing you really need to do is screw the legs into the track, luckily the tools to do so come with the package.
I called and spoke with Tim from studio 4 productions, (aka indiSYSTEMS) and he told me about some exciting new DSLR rigs that they are releasing in the next few months. Mixing low price with durability is their goal, and the new rig will supposedly have a matte box, follow focus, and rail system.
