A favorite of camera operators, sound techs and grips alike, Matthews’ Sliders feature solid construction, modular versatility, and ultra-smooth and silent moves. Proprietary oversized roller wheels offer silky motion regardless of load or speed. Add to that, intuitive, two-screw adjustability and do-it-yourself field servicing and you’ve got a trusted set essential since 2014. And now, there’s a new accessory—the Steady Rest.
Choose 29", 35", 45" or 70" Sliders: These Sliders deliver more than just smooth camera movement to virtually any gearhead/fluidhead camera combo. They add stability in otherwise challenging lock-off positions. They get the camera over a ledge or windowsill without damage or harming talent below. They extend reach, providing offset mounting for the included rotating Mitchell swivel base that’s useful for tabletop, car interiors and other situations.
