I need to know if a 45 degree curved slider exists, instead of just a straight one?

Anything from 2 feet to 6 feet long?

If someone could help ASAP I would GREATLY appreciate it!


Thanks everyone!

Alex, never seen a curved slider in my time; as far as I know they're all straight lengths.

Hello Alex,

I have not seen a curved slider (yet)

What I do have available is CamRail on a curved track, 45 degrees, approx 2 meter trackinglenght, radius of 1m20. It is an item rarely found, used to be manufactured 15 years ago by a danish/swedish company (?). I have it available from the netherlands, but shipping is not worthwhile I think.

If you describe the shot you are looking for maybe more people can help you: rotating tables, small dolly-curved-track, rotating UBanghy's/outriggers on a dolly or underslung on a crane. Also camera weight can be important.

Good Luck,

Onno
