DollyCrane SD

DollyCrane SD – £3250* + vat & delivery

The DollyCrane is an innovative Grip system combining the function of the camera slider and mini jib / crane. Once set up, the system can quickly change its function from camera slider to jib and back thanks to its unique construction.

The DollyCrane can be assembled quickly by just one operator using a standard heavyweight tripod. The DollyCrane will carry any camera/head combination up to 12kg.

Slider: By utilizing a movable counterweight, the camera can be tracked up to 160 cm, much further than in typical camera sliders. The slider rail can be set at almost any angle including vertical, and with the counterweight system, the camera can be moved up and down the slider with
minimal effort. As the camera moves in one direction, the counterweight tracks in the opposite direction, allowing for continuous perfect balance and control. The movement of dolly and counterweight is absolutely silent thanks to rubbered wheels.

In addition to the tripod mount, the DollyCrane can also be mounted directly onto the floor with the supplied adjustable legs.

Crane: When configured as a crane the camera can move parallel to the ground, and execute crane movements in 3 axis, up to a maximum lens height of 3m (depending on base tripod)

Mini-jib: In its mini-jib configuration, the DollyCrane operator can tilt, pan and move the camera 360 degrees around the base tripod with a maximum lens height of 3m (depending on base tripod)

The DollyCrane is supplied in two fitted soft cases.
