The Prosup tango slider is possibly the best slider I ever worked with. The slider comes as a fully equipped kit fits very nicely and compact in a beautiful pelicase (with wheels!).
Building up the slider is easy and once it stands, you can quickly move it from one place to another. I sometimes even attach tripod wheels to it – so you can just roll it from one angle to another, apply the brakes and start shooting with a happy and healthy back.
With the included floor spreaders i often put it straight on the ground or on some apple boxes, it’s quick and easy to level out when required.
When mounted on a tripod, there are 2 monopods included that make sure the sides don’t tip over. Working with these monopods is so much easier than with bigger tripods – For example; Recently I was filming a short documentary for Dremel. When we we’re filming in a narrow hallway, i could easily extend the slider onto the stairs and just have the monopod support it there, allowing for an awesome transition shot from behind a door.
After shooting, the monopods and tripod are easily removed allowing it to be transported through narrow hallways.
I love sliders – they allow for beautiful movements and perspectives you can’t easily achieve with other tools. And the Prosup Tango is one of the smoothest sliders i’ve ever worked with.
