Excerpt: I love this little tool! It has 2.4 in of forward/backward motion and 1.2 in of side to side motion. There is no perceptible lash in the system. This will be sufficient for a good many amateurs who like to shoot macro from time to time and don't want to spend anywhere from $250 to $650 for a slider. I heartily recommend this.
Excerpt: My current use for this product is what else Macro photography. However I just tried a little Macro video with this piece of equipment, and I have to say I am pleased with my purchase. Now this unit is not the most expensive one out there, but for the price it does a good job. If you have looked at other units and some of the cost for them, you know what I mean. So if you need a low cost slider...Just purchase and, ENJOY.
Excerpt: This slider is well made & functions very well. The adjustments on the track rods are precise & there wasn't slippage with the tract tilted down to 45 degrees. The problem I have with it is that it is too flimsy for my gear (D800 + Zeiss macro planar 100mm.
Excerpt: Great tripod head for macros and focus stacking. It is easy to use, lightweight and well built. At first I did not like that the two adjusting knobs were too close together but you get used to it. That was really the only downside at the beginning.
Excerpt: This focusing slider is very well built with smooth action in all directions. If you do not like both adjusting knobs on the same side it's very easy to remove the top slider & turn it around so the top knob is on the other side with the included allen wrench. I have no play at all with my setup which also includes quick release plates between the ball head & slider & between the slider & camera. For this price it is well worth it.
Excerpt: I bought this. And I use this. … It is very lightweight, and there is a real drawback in that it is not very stable with my equipment. The movements with the adjusting knobs are very stiff, and the stiffness makes it a little difficult to adjust the tracking I wish. Even though I am using this, and I will not throw it away, I feel that I should have spent more money, and purchased a better tool.
Excerpt: the nobs on the left are too close to each other. the side to side action worked well but the front to back action left me believing the screw was warped. knob very hard to turn. no measuring lines helpful for photo stacking. I recommend you keep on looking. I returned this product.
