Patent # US 9494277:

SEAMLESS MOTION WITH ROCKING-FREE STARTS AND STOPS, FAST SETUP TIME, LIGHTWEIGHT,  HEAVY LOAD CAPACITY, FLEXIBLE MOUNTING OPTIONS,PATENTED DESIGN AND ENGINEERING

Our camera sliders are the only sliders designed to handle all camera options — from DSLRs to professional cameras of any format. Unlike other sliders, ours does not require center support. Numerous mounting options are also available to accommodate any and all environments. Our wheel bearing modules are designed to forgo the need for lubrication and are machined from the strongest self-lubricating polymer available today.

Their low profile, lightweight, high-load capacity makes our sliders the quickest and easiest to set up on location. They are made of the highest-grade aluminum, brass, and stainless steel milling materials — all corrosion and rust-free.

The quality of motion with our patented hybrid sleeve bearing wheel combination is unsurpassed. It allows for rock-free seamless starts and stops as well as continuous motion at all camera movement speeds. The latch on the carriage is designed for quick release of the Hi-hat with the camera still mounted on the tripod head. This feature allows operators to either continue shooting in Hi-hat mode, in MYT Rover Dolly mode, or in setting the camera down while repositioning the slider for another setup. Structurally, our slider can handle extreme temperatures and the most severe adverse shooting conditions.

The 3-in-1 capability extends to our Skater dolly, enabling a seamless transition from one to another. Both camera slider and skater dolly carriage platforms have a 5.25-inch square spacing insert profile, allowing our Hi-hat to be lifted from our camera slider and instantly mounted on our skater dolly. All our accessories also work for camera sliders and skater dollies.

All our components are designed, engineered, machined and built in-house. Our camera sliders are designed by Filmmakers and Engineers for Filmmakers. It is often the first comment we hear when people first try our sliders. Making sure they can count on a reliable camera linear motion system for years to come is of paramount importance to us. Filmmakers can see and sense our equipment was designed for them by one of them. Hence our motto, Born out of Frustration, our registered Trademark.

Carriage

The slider carriage anchors to the rails with sleeved bearing blocks and glides using a hybrid rolling-sliding mechanism. Attach and secure a MYT Works Hi-Hat with the use of a quick-release latch or affix accessories to the carriage’s industry-standard threaded through-holes.

MYT Works Hi-Hat

Hi-Hats, used for mounting your camera to the carriage of camera sliders, are comprised of modular components including a mount, tray, handle bracket, and four rods. The camera mount can be quickly changed between 75/100/150mm doughnuts, and a Mitchell mount.

Hybrid Rolling Sliding Bearings

Our hybrid sleeve and wheel design achieves smooth, damped motion and precision control. The rolling element reduces the amount of force needed to make a move while the sliding element keeps the camera’s inertia under control, preventing overshoot and backlash.

Hi-Hat Quick Release Latch

Easily secure and release the Hi-Hat from the Camera Slider and Rover Dolly using our single-lever latch. A single thumbscrew located on the inside of the carriage adjusts latch pressure. If additional security is required, operators may also screw the Hi-Hat to the carriage using a set of MYT Works SRP Locking Bolts.

Magnetic Dampeners

Our new magnetic dampeners are integrated into the carriage frame with a one-piece bracket positioned on each end. signal the end of the camera move in either direction when operators are using constant framing through the viewfinder. They also prevent hard landings on the end trusses. These are now standard in all our Camera Sliders.

Custom Laser Engraving

Company name, information and/or specific characters can be laser engraved on the Camera Slider. All engraving is done in-house with our high-resolution laser engraver capable of handling metal surfaces. Engraving is done prior to assembly. Individual accessories can be engraved as well.

Diverse Mounting Options

Baby Feet, ⅝” Pins, 19mm Legs (with Rosette Caps), Tripod (with Truss-to-Tripod Adapter), Baby or Junior Stand (with Jr./Baby Stand Adapter), & various grip alternatives

Stud Caps with Locking Wingnuts

Prevent any 5/8″ stud, including light stands, from hitting the carriage with the stud caps located on each of the three static plates. Use the lateral wing nut to secure the dolly to the stud.

Double Extruded Rails

Anodized, double-extruded aluminum rails maintain rigidity at all lengths and eliminate the need for center-mounted stands. Low maintenance and corrosion-resistant.Your description text
