reviews the Varavon Slidecam Lite:
It’s small, light-weight, thin and yet well constructed. Unlike some other budget sliders the Varavon uses metal roller bearings that run along rails concealed in a groove running down the middle of the slider. It is available in various differing lengths from 19 inches to 47 inches. The carriage of the Slidecam lite has a handy built in brake that can prevent the camera from moving. There is also a bubble level for making sure the slider is even.
…The Slidecam Lite usually attaches to just one tripod, in the middle, which is useful for a fast on-the-spot-slide when you don’t have time to set up two tripods.
…What it doesn’t have is the super smooth friction control or larger payload capacity of more expensive sliders – but for the price you can’t really complain.
Here’s another video of the slider with the Sony NEX 7:
Here are the details of the slider:
The Slider Lite range is priced from $180 to $489.
