NEW – Pico Flex Table Dolly
August 31, 2011
Since the inception of the SpiderTrax dolly, there have been quite a few iterations from a number of different companies. Those units on the market were either still pretty large, or built with poor quality. This time around, I wanted to focus on flexibility and portability. I tried to achieve the highest quality possible, in the smallest footprint, and still make it the most affordable for the community. So today i’m showing you guys the Pico Flex Table dolly. It’s still based on the 4 wheel two axle design which I showed a few years ago on the SpiderTrax. The reason for this is because it is much more time consuming to properly align any three wheel design (in case you were considering one). There’s no need to look into any other table dolly system as this one still performs as good, and traveling with it is even easier. You’ll also be quite happy with the initial price.
Although you can spin your dolly around like a madman, when used slowly they can create some interesting footage. Here’s a two year old video I shot when experimenting with my first dolly. Just slight rotation moving slowly on a table.
It’s as small as you can go, while still being able to mount a regular sized Fluid head and support a normal sized Canon DSLR. The main purpose of this product is to just have fun and get creative shots. There are three threaded mounting points to attach friction arms which allow for the lowest possible angle in a camera, as well as adding a number of accessories. Of course if you want to sling a DSLR upside down (as shown in the video), you can counterbalance the weight with another accessory (notice the LED light in the video used with the upside down DSLR).
Pico Dolly w/ Zacuto EVF as Monitor. Also 240 LED Video Light.
The Pico is complete fun for iPhones, GoPro cameras, Small Point and shoot HD Video cameras (like my HX9V), and Micro Four Thirds. Perfect for that new Sony NEX-5n, NEX-7, or even Olympus EP-3. You can purchase the Pico alone, which is a great price. There’s a bundle with a friction arm which brings the price up slightly. The Pico Flex Skater Table Dolly and Accessories are available now.
