    What is the best mid range slider in your opinion? Looking for something around 30"-36"

    Of course! It's a nice one!

    What about 6ft long? Here's mine:

    (cat non included)
    Demo video:


    Cost roughly less than 75$ including the bearings, bolts and the square aluminium tubes.

    That's quite the rig based on your picture, however, I do need something that will center mount on a tripod

    Then I guess ZaZaCast's option is still the best. Nice, Smooth, Portable and Affordable solution.

    any Igus based slider will work fine just as long as you don't overload the camera. I have a two and three foot Igus rail and swap out the base. You can get them on Amazon or direct from Igus. You will need a head to mount on the base. The Zaza looks good as well. Is that a Igus based system?

    Check out the MYT Works site. I have a 4ft medium slider and I use it with my AF100 and my Varicam. It's a great slider.

    I have the same one - and in the studio I centre mount on a heavy duty set of sticks with a 150mm ball. Out in the wild I'll use one or sometimes two smaller sticks with 75 or 100 mm balls, or sandbags, or apple boxes, etc… http://mytworks.com/
