Capturing footage on the go…

The Glidecam Track and Dolly system and CobraCrane Quick Jib are production tools with an assembly time of under 15 minutes. Pair that with a Canon DSLR to capture amazing footage with minimal setup, production cost and a high production value.

What is the Glidecam VistaTrack?

The Glidecam VistaTrack is a track and dolly system with lubricated double-row ball bearings that enable smooth, vibration-free camera movements. This particular slider supports up to a 10lb pay load on its feet and up to 30lbs when mounted on 2 tripods. (You must order an extra release plate for a two tripod setup) You can find the product at BH Photo Video here.

What is the CobraCrane Quick Jib?

The CobraCrane Quick Jib is a single arm jib for small camcorders. There is a 4 inch extension kit included that allows the jib to reach heights up to 12 feet. While the model we have is not the smaller backpack jib, you can still carry the entire unit with weights backpack style. This is also a one-person setup which took no more than 10 minutes to complete. You can find the product at BH Photo Video here.

We used our Canon 5D Mark III with both the 10-48 inch Glidecam VistaTrack and the CobraCrane Quick Jib out of the box. Take a peek at the test footage in the video below:
