Micro-manufacturing allows us to be nimble with our design process and therefore more responsive to the changing needs of our clients. Our small shop assembles to order to ensure quality control and better customer service. At MYT Works, we precision machine our own parts from solid aluminum and steel to build products that last a professional lifetime.
Our camera support tools are known for the following features:
Our sleeve and wheel bearings, spring-loaded wheels and fluidless camera heads are known for their smooth motion and clean starts and stops.

SEAMLESS MOTION WITH ROCKING-FREE STARTS AND STOPS, FAST SETUP TIME, LIGHTWEIGHT, HEAVY LOAD CAPACITY, FLEXIBLE MOUNTING OPTIONS, PATENTED DESIGN AND ENGINEERING
Our camera sliders are the only sliders designed to handle all camera options — from DSLRs to professional cameras of any format. Unlike other sliders, ours does not require center support. Numerous mounting options are also available to accommodate any and all environments. Our wheel bearing modules are designed to forgo the need for lubrication and are machined from the strongest self-lubricating polymer available today.
Their low profile, lightweight, high-load capacity makes our sliders the quickest and easiest to set up on location. They are made of the highest-grade aluminum, brass, and stainless steel milling materials — all corrosion and rust-free.
The quality of motion with our patented hybrid sleeve bearing wheel combination is unsurpassed. It allows for rock-free seamless starts and stops as well as continuous motion at all camera movement speeds. The latch on the carriage is designed for quick release of the Hi-hat with the camera still mounted on the tripod head. This feature allows operators to either continue shooting in Hi-hat mode, in MYT Rover Dolly mode, or in setting the camera down while repositioning the slider for another setup. Structurally, our slider can handle extreme temperatures and the most severe adverse shooting conditions.
The 3-in-1 capability extends to our Skater dolly, enabling a seamless transition from one to another. Both camera slider and skater dolly carriage platforms have a 5.25-inch square spacing insert profile, allowing our Hi-hat to be lifted from our camera slider and instantly mounted on our skater dolly. All our accessories also work for camera sliders and skater dollies.
All our components are designed, engineered, machined and built in-house. Our camera sliders are designed by Filmmakers and Engineers for Filmmakers. It is often the first comment we hear when people first try our sliders. Making sure they can count on a reliable camera linear motion system for years to come is of paramount importance to us. Filmmakers can see and sense our equipment was designed for them by one of them. Hence our motto, Born out of Frustration, our registered Trademark.
BORN OUT OF FRUSTRATION

Our team solves the unique technical dilemmas of camera professionals who seek excellence in camera operation. Our in-house design and manufacturing ensures that we have full quality control to deliver functionality and reliability in our camera motion tools.
Our location in New York City keeps us on the pulse of the industry on all fronts: broadcast, cinema production and independent filmmaking. All of our products are built and serviced at our Brooklyn location.
