My Review of the DEV-1000 Camera Slider;


Glide Gear DEV-235 

23.5″ Professional Video Camera Slider

Developed in the USA, this latest innovation from Glide Gear, the DEV-235 camera slider was designed for professionals and hobbyists alike so that they could own a slider that was extremely versatile as well as achieving a new level of smoothness and silence unlike anything else available on the market. Made from aircraft grade aluminum, finished with space age nickel boron, and coated in our patented frictionless polymer to obtain a smoothness never before achieved with any sled based sliders. The new design of legs and feet are easily removed for mounting just about anywhere, and extremely versatile. The little rubber balls on the end can be adjusted to many various lengths allowing the Glide Gear Dev-235 to be able to sit on any kind of uneven terrain or even upside down against a wall. These legs are CNC machined with 0.005inch tolerances so they are tremendously stable and substantially sturdy. Made with 6061 aluminum and able to carry cameras up to 15lbs, the Glide Gear DEV-235 camera slider is rediculously strong for it’s light weight of 2.4 lbs.
