An excellent, silky-smooth, open-framed camera platform for professional video production; the Slider is tough, easily maintained and rock-steady. The modular design can be operated in an inverted position, and the Slider's sheer flexibility, multitude of tethering points and ease of operation - even at the most difficult of angles - open up swathes of innovative possibilities to the imaginative director.
Matthews Studio Equipment complements your creativity with Matthews-Slider: A camera platform that is extremely sturdy and lightweight owing to its innovative open frame construction. It is both camera operator and grip friendly, being virtually maintenance-free (just keep it clean!) and totally field adjustable with few basic tools: one 7/16" spanner and a set of Allen keys.
It can work upside-down for low-angle shots, can support more than one carriage at a time for A and B camera shots and it has positive lock at 90 degrees when in use on most dollies (Chapman, Fisher, Panther, etc.). Each carriage can support up to 80kg - bracing of tracks might be necessary. The system uses proprietary wheels with ABEC5 stainless bearings with ceramic balls which make it very fast and extremely quiet.
The Matthews-Slider comes in four basic sizes: 29", 35", 45" and 70" (74cm, 89cm, 114cm and 178cm), of which this 35 inch model is the most widely used.
Fully factory assembled, the system will accept any gear head/fluid head/camera combination. It comes complete with Mitchell swivel base, Mitchell carriage, Mitchell 2" riser, filler plate, slim design locking handle, a set of levelling legs 0" to 6-3/4" (2x4", 2x6"), extra 3/8-16" screws and a set of spanner wrenches. The Matthews-Slider comes with numerous 3/8-16" tapped holes for rigging and securing. Additional accessories available from Matthews (bowl adapters, rigging spigots, et cetera). Conveniently sized to fit in Pelican1700 series long cases
The Matthews-Sliders not only give extremely smooth camera movement, they also add stability in otherwise challenging lock-off positions. For example, getting the camera off a ledge or window-sill and trusting that it won't hurt your talent down below.
The design is completely modular, allowing offset mounting of the rotating Mitchell base to extend the reach of the system. This feature may be used for table top, car interior and many other situations. The Matthews-Slider gives you many options for incredibly solid, and quiet camera movement.
Matthews Studio Equipment is the original ‘Hollywood’ grip supplier to the film and video industries they are well known for innovation, durability and build quality.

- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
