Flexible Tripod Rubber Suction Spiked Feet
October 22, 2011


Tweet

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 [...]

Pico Flex Dolly on Rails
October 1, 2011


Tweet

Disclaimer:: The Pico Flex Dolly was not designed to work in this manner. Use in this manner at your own risk.
The Pico Flex Dolly has already been motorized with lasers, so what else can we expect? Here’s something quite odd. This is just something I happened upon and although it’s not perfect, maybe it [...]

Pico Flex Dolly Sample
September 14, 2011


Tweet

I was really hoping to inspire some point-and-shoot’ers to use the Pico Flex Dolly with a lightweight camera, but it seems everyone is going straight to the big DSLRs! LOL. Here’s another fine example from YouTube member judgejgamertag a.k.a innerchie.com, showing some very nice rolling footage samples. Not bad for a $65 tool.

NEW – Pico Flex Table Dolly
August 31, 2011


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 [...]

Camera Dolly Skater – Three Wheelin’
May 19, 2011


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 [...]

Small Camera Monopod Tilt Head
April 20, 2011


Tweet

With the new Sunpak Carbon Monopod and Velbon Ultra stick in the house, it’s time to add a little tilt swag. I opted to try this small tilt head (no pan) to still keep things short and tight. It’s pretty much the same design you’ll find on certain Manfrotto monopods, but a third the price [...]

Konova’s Mini Video Photo Fluid Head
March 23, 2011


Tweet
Konova is now pushing a small Fluid Head for their SpiderTrax-Like Rotating Video Dolly or their popular Camera Roller Bearing Slider. This new little fluid head could be slightly compared to the Manfrotto 128RC or even the very nice Calumet Video Fluid Head. Obviously for a cheaper price, and possibly not at the same level [...]

DIY SpiderTrax Rotating Dolly
March 10, 2011


Tweet

Vimeo member Switch Flick uses pieces from a Flycam Nano to make a DIY Spidertrax Rotating Dolly. Axles are a bit long on this first version, but it looks pretty legit with attention to details down to the bolts (much like I used in my setup). Of course, this is all assuming you’ve already dished [...]

Wow, the store front really expanded for this tiny eBay seller. I’ve had my eye on them for a while now as they had a few interesting items. Today they just really loaded up with a bunch of new items. Two of them are some serious clones. First most interesting item is the ‘mysterious’ clone [...]

Test Drive SpiderTrax Clone – Korean Dolly
February 19, 2011


Tweet

The original SpiderTrax Dolly is no longer available via PhotographyAndCinema.com, but the Korean company Konova copied the design pretty much dead on. This would be the better alternative aside from making one on your own. Here’s some friends working with the dolly during Valentine’s day. They let the dolly control all the camera movements with [...]

Lull – by Jeremy Mayhew
September 11, 2010


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 [...]

The guys over at Calixte Works are at it again. This time putting together a video about their DIY version of the Spidertrax Rotating Video Dolly, all video shot and Dolly built ‘inside’ the local Home Depot. Crazy guys, but looks like a simple and inexpensive build for some quality rotating video footage. The rotating [...]

Wow, very cool examples of what type of footage you can achieve with the SpiderTrax Dolly design. Here’s another simple build video of how parts from a normal skateboard, Cheese Plate, and Quick release adapter were put together for those slider and rotational shots.
Here’s a link to the cheese plate that was used.

Two months [...]

SpiderTrax Dolly – DIY Footage
July 26, 2010


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 [...]
