A little while ago I received myRhino Camera Slider, months after backing their kickstarter project! I decided to make a full review video for the slider because I felt it was easiest to show you all of its features and take it for a test run in Melbourne to see whether it was worth the money
There are 3 different versions of the Rhino camera slider available:
|Rhino Slider||$400||~5lbs (2.5kg)|
|Rhino Slider Carbon||$475||~3lbs (1.5kg)|
|Rhino Slider Pro||$550||~10lbs (5kg)|
Here is my setup of the Rhino slider. I have mounted a Velbon PH-368 camera pan head which I bought for around $50 off ebay onto the carriage. The pan head gives me full control over the movement of the camera on the slider.
I paid $575 as a Kickstarter backer and received the Pro slider as well as a carrying case and a pulley system. The carrying case by itself costs $75 and the pulley system is priced at $50.
The carrying case is made from extremely tough material, has compartments for multiple sets of rails, a back strap and an internal handle for moving the carrying case around during your shoot.
One of the available accessories is a pulley system that attaches to the side of your Rhino camera slider and provides a means to easily move the carriage for vertical or slanted shots. In the bag, which doubles as a handle for the pulley cable, is the pulley cable which ends in a screw that connects to the carriage, a pulley wheel and a screw to connect the pulley wheel to the side of the slider.

Hi! What tripods are you using to support the Rhino Slider in the two tripod setup? In other words, since you are using two tripods, are you able to cheap out on them a little bit? I'm considering buying the Rhino Slider, but can't afford the extra cost of buying two additional heavy expensive tripods to support it.
Hi, I have one strong tripod and a fairly cheap one. I reckon you could get away with two fairly simple tripods, but it might be worth having a look at the Carbon Fibre version of the Rhino slider as it's a lot lighter.
