The IndiSlider is a unique piece of production kit. This video is my attempt (I'm no on-camera talent!), to try and share how I use it. I don't mount it the way it's supposed to be mounted, so this is just my way of doing it! I find I get more versatility mounting it this way. Including using it as a 3 foot jib once it's mounted! There are drawbacks, there is a slight tilt as it slides along the path this way, and ground shooting is difficult with the plate stuck on the bottom, but I explain a solution to that!
The Indislider tends to slightly slow down in certain spots along it's path. I find keeping the rails clean really helps. Wipe them down before each use with a lens cloth.
UPDATE: I've removed the 5th braking block from the bottom of the slider, the one with the turn knob on it. This seemed to be causing much of the binding I was experiencing. You need to remove one of the end blocks, then slide the whole plate out, the one that falls loose is the one you want to remove. Give it a try, your mileage may vary!
This is shot in 720p 24fps on an EX1. I show my V1 with a Letus extreme and Zacuto rails being mounted on the slider.
I'm not endorsing in any way this device. I just want to share my experiences with it.
