A well designed slider which is strong enough to support RED & Alexa. 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. By utilising 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.
