If you’ve spent a lot of time on the site, you’ll probably know that i’m very happy with my Konova Slider, but the price has jumped up over the last few months. The Konova Slider is a great buy but I’ve gotten a number of e-mails asked if there is anything cheaper out there.

The answer is yes. If you are in the market for a new camera slider, you might want to take a look at the Motion Slider 36. This slider doesn’t have the linear bearings that the Konova enjoys but with practice you can achieve about the same results.

Cost is probably the most important part for many of you, and the Motion Slider 36 clocks in at about $160. That’s still a little high for something like this, but you end up with a 36 inch slider that can achieve very nice results if you learn to use it right. The video above gives you an idea of what you can accomplish if you master the Motion Slider 36, and if you’re willing to practice, this could be a great way to go. Especially if you’re on a budget.
