"It was always a pain carrying my slider on location. Sidebeam gets rid of that!"
Patrick Ang, Wedding Videographer
Designed to be portable from day one, Sidebeam compacts to just 14" long.
Travel everywhere with a full 48" slider in a backpack. Say goodbye to check-in luggage and keep your gear with you at all times.
Made from aircraft grade aluminum, the slider can hold 10 lbs. of gear.
Great for wedding and adventure videographers.
Patent pending reinforced hook connections enable you to assemble the slider in under 60 seconds.
With precision machining, the connected tracks offer a virtually seamless edge for smooth sliding motion.
Quick adjust legs allow you to adapt to uneven terrain without the use of any tools.
A 4' Sidebeam is the only slider that includes a 2' and 3'.
With a slider this versatile, you'll never have to buy into a fixed length system again.
How long does it take to assemble?
Assembling the 4' slider is easy and can be put together in about a minute or less once you get used to it!
How heavy is the slider?
The 4' prototype slider including the carriage weighs around 7 lbs. *Numbers are approximate and weight of the production model will be determined upon completion
How smooth is the motion?
We know that a slider without smooth motion is unacceptable. The connected seams are virtually unnoticeable and we're really impressed with its performance.
How much camera weight can it support?
The prototype is able to support 10 lbs. and final numbers will be released with the production model
Does the slider work with tripods?
The slider has a 1/4"-20 hole at each end, and both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 holes in each bracket, disposed every 12" of the slider.
Will there be a motorized option?
Yes. We are looking to release a motor kit in 2017.
