Manfrotto Camera Slider 60cm (23.6")
The 23.6" Camera Slider from Manfrotto is a sturdy, portable solution for adding short-length tracking shots and subtle motion to your videos with loads up to 22 lb. It features high-precision steel ball bearings and quiet PSU polymer wheels for smooth camera carriage slides and an adjustable friction system to dial in the right amount of resistance for each slide. The carriage has a maximum travel distance of 18.4". The slider is constructed from machined anodized aluminum and weighs 4.83 lb. It can be setup on any flat and level surface or mounted on a tripod via the 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads at the center and ends of the tripod.

Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base
The Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base is an affordable yet remarkably fully featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads). This head is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The 502AH comes in two versions—the "AH" flat-base version such as this, and the "A" ball base version which is separately available.
The weight capacity is 15.4 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads due to matte boxes or DSLR rig configurations.
The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar.
Pan drag and tilt drag are continuously adjustable from 0 (no drag) to the maximum level
