B Hague has introduced a new Pro Cam-Slide using a roller within the sleeve that it claims will create "easy smooth camera movements far superior to standard sleeve bearings used by other suppliers."
This is thanks to its use of the latest Igus Hybrid Roller Bearings running on an Igus WS-16-60 Linear Rail. The rail is 1metre long, and the camera is mounted to a sliding carriage allowing users to create "super smooth tracking shots".
The carriage is supplied with both 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch threaded screws to attach a video head or ball head to the carriage. The camera can also be attached directly to the carriage.
On the side of the carriage is a carriage lock, which will hold it in a set position. The lock can also be used to add drag to the carriage if required.
Two rail supports are also supplied, one for each end of the rail, for use on a table or the floor, and they also prevent the carriage from coming off the end of the rail. The rail supports have four self-aligning adjustable feet for use on uneven ground.
