PortaRail Camera Slider Rail
Our new PortaRail collapsible camera slider rail is now available. The track/tubes are the strongest and most accurate collapsable rail that we have seen on the market. Constructed from high-grade 6061 aluminum for rigidity and machined to a tolerance of .001″, sections of track connect seamlessly via threaded connectors (you will not notice a “bump” when rolling over them). Sections are 40″ (1 meter) long. The 6061 aluminum is much stronger than the architectural aluminum that is sometimes used for similar applications. The stronger material provides much more rigidity which means a more solid system with very little flex. At 80″ the camera slider rails have less than 1/8″ of flex with a 40 pound load placed at the center. Each piece goes through a 6 step process to make them straight enough and round enough for precision camera movement.
4 sections total (80″ per side) is typical for most setups but you can add as many sections as you need for longer shots. This product can be used with many other “speed-rail” type sliders and dollies with a similar OD. The outside diameter is 1.65″ (41.9mm).
