The Cheapest Professional Slider for Youtube?

It’s not easy making professional videos with cheap gear. Sometimes you have to invest a bit to step your game up. That’s where the Manfrotto Slider comes in.

 

Manfrotto is very well known in the camera world. The brand makes tripods, sliders and other camera gear. However, it’s not cheap. This slider costs more than 400$, but is worth the money if you’re looking for an upgrade in your camera gear. The slider is very well made, very sturdy and is off course very fluid.

PROS

  • Very fluid
  • Very well built
  • You can tighten or loosen the friction to get different clips
  • It can be mounted on a tripod
  • Comes in a carrying sack

CONS

  • Not cheap
  • A bit heavy
  • No ballhead included – you will need to get this separately (but can use a Gorillapod or other cheap ballhead)

VERDICT

The camera slider from Manfrotto is sturdy, fluid and works great. It’s not cheap and it doesn’t include a ballhead (which you will need for your DSLR) so that’s a bummer. However, if you shoot movies for a living or really want to invest in your gear, than a good slider is a must have. This Manfrotto slider comes as close to a professional camera slider as it gets for the price. You can find the slider here.

Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
