In this review, we will con­sid­er a slid­er from Ando­er.

The man­u­fac­tur­er Ando­er spe­cial­izes in the man­u­fac­ture of var­i­ous pho­to / video acces­sories and has already man­aged to gain pop­u­lar­i­ty due to its good qual­i­ty prod­ucts and low prices.


Comes with a hex wrench, a spare ¼ thread with a 3/8″ adapter and two spare wheels.

The slid­er is made of alu­minum alloy, the build qual­i­ty is excel­lent. On the plat­form of the car­riage there is a screw with a ¼ inch thread, rub­ber strips to pre­vent the cam­era from slip­ping and a liq­uid lev­el to set the hori­zon.

At the bot­tom of the car­riage there is a bolt with which you can adjust the ease of the car­riage on the rails or fix it in a cer­tain place. The dis­ad­van­tages include the incon­ve­nient loca­tion of the bolt, it would be much more con­ve­nient if it was locat­ed on the side.

The low­er car­riage has 2 tri­pod head mounts with ¼” and 3/8″ threads.

There are retractable legs on the sides in case the slid­er is used with­out a tri­pod on an uneven sur­face. The legs do not have a lim­iter (you can com­plete­ly unscrew it) and I will attribute this to the minus­es.

Dimen­sions: rail length — 49cm, total slid­er length — 52.5cm, height (with twist­ed legs) — 6.3cm, with max­i­mum unscrewed — 7cm, slid­er width — 8.8cm.
slid­er weight: 1.5kg.

The main advan­tage of this slid­er is that when used on a tri­pod, the work­ing area increas­es from 49cm (when used stand-alone, not on a tri­pod) to 86cm. The move­ment is car­ried out thanks to bear­ings and a nylon belt.

The man­u­fac­tur­er claims a max­i­mum load capac­i­ty of up to 8kg. The slid­er works great with my cam­era, which weighs 1.5kg.

Based on oper­at­ing expe­ri­ence, I can say that this thing is very use­ful and nec­es­sary for video­g­ra­phers, but it requires some skill to shoot real­ly beau­ti­ful shots.

This slid­er great­ly sim­pli­fied and diver­si­fied sub­ject video shoot­ing. Before that, I had to make and use impro­vised means, like this:

Video demon­stra­tion of the slid­er:

+ well thought out and imple­ment­ed retractable sys­tem;
+ high build qual­i­ty;
+ good equip­ment;
+ the pres­ence of the lev­el;

— incon­ve­nient loca­tion of the car­riage lock bolt;
— no leg restraints;
— no block­er (to stop the slid­er in the right place).
