Thanko - Camera Slider Long Rail to shoot smooth moving images

Thanko's new Camera Slider Long Rail allows you to take a smooth sliding shot, which is hard to do while you hold a camera in your hand.

There is a threaded screw hole at the center and also at either end of the rail to attach your tripod stand(s). By using 2 tripod stands and set them at different heights, you can change the angle of the slope any way you like.

Since a set of feet for the rail comes with the Camera Slider Long Rail, you can place the rail with the feet on the ground and shoot a moving image close to the ground.

Camera Slider Long Rail will make you more creative and give you multiple shooting ideas.

  • Size: 1240x240x135mm
  • Weight: 3.1kg
