What types of camera sliders are there?

You can narrow your search for a camera slider on eBay by choosing a specific type. The type of slide cam you choose may depend on the type of camera you already own. Some common types of manual or motorised camera sliders you can find on eBay are:

  • Action - These types of slides go with action cams to help you get great shots while you are on the move. The action cam will usually attach to a helmet or chest mount, and the slider can expand your photo range.
  • Handheld - If you aren't into crafting photo opportunities on the move, you can pair your regular camera with a handheld slide or tripod.
Can you buy new and used options from eBay?

eBay offers several brand new camera slides for your perusal. You may wish to purchase a used slide cam instead. Purchasing a used one may allow you to get an item of similar quality for a cheaper price. In some cases, a used slider may operate just like a new one but have slight cosmetic differences that are not present on a newer item. A refurbished slider has been restored to factory condition, but it may not feature its original packaging, instructions, or other documents.
