I made a video review because I was having difficulty finding a good visual review of this slider when I was considering purchasing it. In the video I give closeups of what comes with it as well as the little benefits of the slider that really make it great. Oh, and how well it actually slides.

The main competitors to the slider (that I have had experience testing) were the Cinevate Atlas 10 and Kessler Crane Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly. I find this slider matches (and exceeds in some areas) the quality of the Cinevate Atlas 10 and matches the Kessler Crane Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly in many areas. This is all accomplished with a product that sells for roughly $350 and arrives from Korea in 3 days.

*My 1/3 of the price claim was an average of the Cinevate Atlas 10's current cost of $630 (all terrain legs add-on) with the Kessler Crane Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly at approximately $1,200. Not exact but I didn't want a review title of "As Good As Cinevate and Kessler for 1/2 and 1/3 of the price respectively in regards to both companies equivalent offerings." :)

I'm excited to see what other accessories Konova comes out with and will update this review or post new ones once they are released.

I had been putting off buying a slider for quite some time. Then I had a shoot coming up where I needed a slider. I researched sliders pretty thoroughly, and was pretty gun shy about buying this "low cost" slider.

Yes, this is low cost compared to others. You have to realize that no matter what the other guys classify as a slider, you will not get anything good unless you get a slider with ball bearings in it. You can sure get sliders that are somewhat decent without ball bearings, but don't be complaining if they aren't awesome.

So I bought this based on various reviews and video shots I had seen. On top of it, I contacted the seller as I didn't realize it was going to take 4-8 weeks to get this thing from across the world. I had my fingers crossed that the seller would respond with good news, that the slider would come in a few DAYS, and that the slider itself would be as awesome as it had been portrayed.

Well, it came in a couple of days as promised (THANKS KONOVA!!!). It was easy to put the outside legs on, mount on my tripod, and attach my camera head. I took some test shots and pretty much have been walking around with a BIG GRIN on my face ever since.

To make a long story short:

PROS:
1. KONOVA shipped this to me in record time because I really needed it now, now, now. Thank you!
2. Set up was sooooooo easy. This is my first slider and I could've gotten easily confused. I had it out of the box and up on my tripod in use in about 15 minutes! It was still cold from the shipping!
3. It was perfectly adjusted and smooth as glass.
4. Construction is ALL highly polished and machined aluminum and metal parts. It is STURDY with no burrs or any sign of defects in workmanship.
5. It's absolutely gorgeous looking.

I was very impressed with this item. The machining is superb and it rolls very smoothly. And when it doesn't it's because of very tiny specks of dirt on the rails (which speaks to how tight the tolerances are), but it comes with two cleaning doodads that you pull down the rails to clean everything off, then it's smooth as silk.

I researched these types of sliders for awhile and for the money, this is by far the best choice. The Kessler Pocket Dolly works as well, but costs about $200 more. And all the others in this price range don't use roller bearings, instead using slippery plastic sliders on the car. When using a fluid head, DSLR with good lens, and monitor or other accessories, you really need bearings, otherwise the movement is not smooth all the way through.

Whoever designed this one were really thoughtful. There are multiple tripod holes, both 1/4-20 and 3/8 at three locations on the bottom and the same on both ends for vertical shots. With the car brake and the rail/bearing design you can do vertical shots, diagonal shots, and with an addition of the right tripod screws, you can flip it upside down to create wide in and out tracking shots that don't see the rails. (The car mounts to the tripod and the rail mounts to the camera, so the rail acts like a telescoping boom arm. Sweet.)

It comes with a padded case and two wide feet for both ends you can take on and off for lots more stability on the ground.

When I ordered, Amazon said it could be 4-6 weeks. But in reality it came in literally 4 days from Korea. Overall, I don't think there is anything out there nearly as good for the money.

This Konova slider is well made and much cheaper than alternatives. It's lightweight and slides smoothly. Note that it has to have weight on the slider to make it smooth. Without it though, the sliding plate brakes itself which is a nice touch. The carrying case is just big enough to carry the slider, so it won't be able to hold a tripod head.

I ordered this slider in January of 2014 and have had it for 2 months now. This is one amazing piece of construction. So far I've used this slider on two shoots and it performed flawlessly. This slider comes pre-oiled, so sliding along the track can be unpredictable and inconsistent at times. I researched some oiling techniques and some popular forums and found that using regular old Lemon Pledge furniture polish as lubricant works exceptionally well. I gave it a shot and was very impressed. Slides are smooth as butter!! This slider locked down to a solid tripod works wonders. I have noticed that if your camera is loaded with a heavy lens and a shotgun mic of some sort, it does tend to bow when slid to the very edges when a tripod is attached in the center.. Being that the track is thinner than more expensive sliders, it tends to be a little less stable, but nothing a second tripod can't fix! The legs included are very nice as well. The ratcheting feet are a plus, so using this slider on a counter top (hell, even stacked milkcrates) yields excellent results. I love this slider. I would highly recommend it. I would buy another one simply because I love it so much.
