Glidetrack Now Shipping New Glidetrack SD Hybrid Shooter
December 22, 2011 -- Glidetrack today announced the new Glidetrack SD Hybrid Shooter, a camera slider that doubles as a shoulder support. The weight and balance of the product makes it perfect for
the newer breeds of DSLR’s, such as the Canon60d, 550D/Rebel T2i, Nikon D90 and the Canon 5D Mk II, which can also shoot video. The SD Shooter Hybrid is identical to the previous model with the exception of a new SD Hybrid carriage.
The SD Hybrid carriage features both sliding and roller bearings, making it 4-5 times easier to slide than the
traditional Drylin liners. The Glidetrack SD Hybrid Shooter is available in two lengths: 19.68" (0.5m) and 29.53" (0.75m).
SD Hybrid Shooter carriage consists of:
Igus hybrid bearings
Hard anodized, aluminium, high precision extruded industrial grade rail, eight self lubricating, and dry running roller bearings.
The dual functionality of the Shooter SD Hybrid offers tremendous
flexibility to the film-maker as you can operate and transfer from a
tripod to a shoulder mounted or floor mounted setup easily and quickly.
This aspect is made even more apparent considering how lightweight the
SD Hybrid Shooter is.
This makes the SD Hybrid Shooter a completely unique product in the
portable dolly market and for those looking to bring diversity and
flexibility to their composition; the Shooter is the core piece of kit
that will complement your setup.
