iFootage understands the importance of a product's build so we removed excess mass, dramatically reducing its weight and size. This design tweak makes our product increasingly convenient and less cumbersome to photographers who need to pack and deploy the unit frequently. These so called 'sharks' can be separated from each part in 10 seconds, taking only three minutes to complete the entire installation. It is easy to carry around and even easier to clean its components.It also benefits from modular design which means that there is no need to buy another setup for different scenarios.
High quality components
The Japan imported silent bearings last about five times longer than standard bearings, even with constant use over prolonged periods of time. Also imported, the synchronous belts provide high precision and torque, with excellent performance even in high load situations. The carbon fibre tubes and the three wheel locking system, make it almost impossible to be bent out of shape when the manufacturer load limit is respected. By far more robust than a traditional slider, Shark Slider S1 benefits from increased resistance and can be used under any weather conditions.
Shark slider comes in a standard package as well as a bundle. Your slider can become as long as 1,200mm or 1,800mm (from the original 790mm) with the help of the extension tubes.
Smooth camera movement
The flywheel provides a damping effect through its centrifugal force, allowing you to have smooth acceleration/deceleration for the camera movement. The belt and the synchronising wheel are perfectly connected to avoid any vibrations caused by the movement. Having a triangle structure means the slider gets maximum stability. The bottom plate is equipped with support screws so the structure doesn't wobble when the slider is mounted on the tripod. If smooth and quiet video shoots are what you're looking for, then the shark slider offers the perfect solution.
