The Matthews-Slider is a camera platform that is extremely sturdy and lightweight owing to its innovative open frame construction, giving you many options for incredibly solid, fast and extremely quiet camera movement for an affordable price. It is both camera operator and grip friendly, being virtually maintenance free and totally field adjustable with few basic tools, which makes it safe getting the camera off a ledge or window-sill.


It can work upside-down for low-angle shots, support more than one carriage at a time for A and B camera shots, and it has a positive lock at 90 degrees when in use on most dollies (Chapman, Fisher, Panther, etc.). Fully factory assembled, the system will accept any gear head/fluid head/camera combination.
