The Glidetrack SD is the original slider that offers a complete package perfect for beginners and pros with lighter rigs. The SD was designed and tailor-made for the new generation of video capable DSLRs as well as smaller prosumer camcorders. Lightweight and portable with a small footprint, the SD easily complements your setup and offers you tremendous flexibility and diversity in your shoots. In addition, the ease of use combined with a quick set up speed means that the SD opens up new possibilities to videographers whilst on a shoot. Instead of just having a tripod, you suddenly have a creative goldmine at your disposal that will add high value shots to your production. As with all Glidetracks, the SD is made to the highest build quality possible with the best components available. Built to last with a guarantee of quality, you can be sure that the SD will meet and go above your expectations. More
The Glidetrack SD is based on a 10mm rail with a 40mm wide slider car. It is light and strong – capable of handling kit up to 4kg. At the heart of the Glidetrack system lies an industrial grade rail and bearing system. The rail is made of hard anodized aluminium and the bearings themselves are of industrial grade self lubricating plastic that makes them extremely insensitive to dirt and dust ingress and corrosion resistant, which cannot be said of traditional bearing systems. The bearings are extremely hard wearing and are rated to run for many thousands of kilometres of travel before needing replaced. Your elbow will wear out before they do!

Comments about Glidetrack SD - 0.5 Metres:
Brilliantly simple idea, and easy to use. The metal rail is a nice piece and the feet are stable. With 2 sizes of threaded hole underneath it will mount to most tripods and chuch a small head on top for ultimate control.Could be longer, but then it would cost more and not be so transportable,
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Glidetrack SD 0.5M
from Sheffield and Morzine
About Me Mountainbike Videographer, Professional
I work as a videographer for a professional downhill mountain bike team, so i purchased the Glidetrack SD to create more interesting shots. I use it with a Canon 5D MK II and a Canon 60DInitially, i had a few issues setting up the Glidetrack. I found that the bolt on the bottom of the sliding plate caught on the tripod bolt, meaning that there was a jolt halfway along the slider. I solved this easily though by putting a washer in between the tripod and the rail. Another problem i had was that the motion wasnt that smooth to start with, and there was to much resistance in to get a smooth shot. Again this was easily solved though, i simply sprayed the rail with a bit of GT85 and slightly loosened the allen key bolts on each corner of the slide plate. Once i had solved these minor issues the Glidetrack worked flawlessly. The 0.5m length is spot on, and enables me to create shots that look like high budget bike film shots. You can also use it as a stabilisation shoulder rig if you slide the camera to one end, point it forwards and put the other end on your shoulder.
