The 4-Foot Slider is a popular model, as it offers the greatest flexibility. It’s small enough to get into tight spaces, yet long enough that it won’t limit your range of motion.
You have the option of being able to move the mounting from the standard centre position to an offset position that extends the Slider’s reach. This feature comes in handy when shooting car interiors or tabletop, as it allows the camera to reach deeper into the car or farther across the table.
The creative applications are endless. For a second-floor window close-up, the 4-Foot Slider can be mounted on a Condor or other aerial platform. The camera can then slide from a wide shot into the close-up, eliminating the need for a zoom. Mounting the 4-Foot Slider on a crane or other ride-able camera platform creates many other tasty opportunities, such as beginning or finishing an arm drop (or rise) with a nice move in or out.
