24May Pico Dolly with Self Contained Motorized Trailer


Tweet
Here’s a look at a prototype motorized trailer sent to me today and it’s attached to a PNC Pico Dolly. Still a prototype, it’s supposed be universal and have some mounting options to attach to several different dollies or maybe even sliders? The idea is to have a motorized push cart to have consistent movement [...]

28Dec Sneak Peek Cinema Skater DSLR Dolly


Tweet

A quick look at the new Cinema Skater Video dolly that can support larger size cameras. On the dolly you’ll see the huge Manfrotto 501HDV fluid head. There is no possible way this head would mount up on the smaller Pico Flex Dolly, so if you’re looking for a dolly to support something like a [...]

23Nov DIY Motorized Pico Flex Table Dolly


Tweet

Great job from Vimeo member Oliver for this DIY motorized Pico Flex Table Dolly. It’s a direct friction based drive wheel, which doesn’t require much torque. The dolly rolls very easily with little effort from a motor. I was testing out something similar several weeks ago using a pulley wheel to a continuous rotating servo [...]

22Oct Flexible Tripod Rubber Suction Spiked Feet

The FotoPro Transformer flexible tripod (released sometime last year), has optional replaceable feet that can be swapped out from standard rubber balls, to suction cups, to magnetic, and also spiked feet. The different options screw in through standard ‘1/4-20 threaded inserts’. This particular flexible tripod is good for cameras weighing under 3lbs (lightweight cameras), or [...]

31Aug NEW – Pico Flex Table Dolly


Tweet

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 [...]

19May Camera Dolly Skater – Three Wheelin’


Tweet

Is a three wheel dolly better than a four wheel SpiderTrax dolly? It’s definitely more difficult for the average DIY’er to tackle, and unless you have clear markings on the wheels, setting the rotation can be a bit tricky. There’s one thing that a three wheel dolly can do that a four wheel can’t, and [...]

Lensse Cam.Wheels Dolly
It’s bound to happen, so here’s another version of a ready made rotating video dolly newly to the market. This one comes from the little known company Lensse. Obviously it does what other rotating dollies can do, but unless it’s wider than what appears in the photos, the narrow stage doesn’t seem [...]

26Sep I’m late, but should be worth it.


Tweet

Running a bit late on the shoot today, but we wanted to have a rail longer than a 4ft. slider. Ran over to Home Depot and quickly assembled a raised dolly track fit for the SpiderTrax Video Dolly. Everything comes right off the shelf, clamps together securely, pretty portable (except for the long rails). The [...]

11Sep Lull – by Jeremy Mayhew


Tweet

Just caught a cool video shot on a Nikon D300s from Jeremy Mayhew. Jeremy has been using the SpiderTrax rotating video dolly quite a bit, and has found ways to use it outdoors quite effectively. I’m really impressed with the quality from this Nikon D300s considering it’s not even a 1080 shooter. The look on [...]

Here’s a link to the cheese plate that was used.

Two months [...]

26Jul SpiderTrax Dolly – DIY Footage


Tweet

Modeled after the SpiderTrax Rotating Video dolly from PhotographyandCinema.com, YouTube member ZelenPol pulled off some really fun footage. This is a fine example of the types of video footage you can capture with the SpiderTrax Rotating video dolly, that you can’t achieve from a camera slider. I just recently shot a video / photo shoot [...]
