reviews the 2 feet version of the Rhino Slider for DSLRs:
The Rhino Slider comes in two lengths – 2 feet and 4 feet. Here are the specs of the 2 feet version ($450):
The solid stainless steel rails are machined down to 1/10 of width of human hair to provide the smoothest, most reliable slide of any slider. 6 wheels, packed with 12 high performance bearings evenly distribute the weight of your camera setup. You can mount the Rhino Slider PRO on a single tripod with the included center mounting plate or on either end of the slider. The end platesalso have tripod mounting points to vertically mount it on a tripod.
Center mounting plate allows use with a single tripod
Locking all-terrain legs make leveling easy when not on a tripod
Micro adjustable feet ensure precise placement
Carriage brakes lock the slider carriage in place when not in use
2 mounting screws are included (3/8-16 & 1/4-20)
Rhino Skin keep your ball or fluid head from moving after mounting
Ships in a Rhino branded box
6 full bearing rollers (12 bearings)
Machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum and 303 Stainless Steel
Type III Hard Anodized (won’t scratch easily)
MADE IN USA
I guess the last part is the weight of the slider, and not its weight-bearing capacity. From the 4 feet model ($550) specs, the weight bearing capacity is 35 lbs. This means it can take larger cameras like a Canon C300 as well.
Here are three videos that go into detail on how the slider can be used:
One cool add-on is the Slider Pulley:
The Slider Pulley ($50) is designed for vertical and remote shots for your Rhino Slider. Included is a counter balance weight bag that can be used to assist vertial pulls or just as a handle.

My thoughts? The Rhino Slider is definitely one of the cheaper options available, and looks like a decent no-nonsense slider that does the basics right.
