DollyCrane combines the function of
the slider, crane/mini jib and tower.

Once set up, the system can instantly change its function
from slider to crane / mini jib and back thanks to its unique construction.

DollyCrane Slider

Dolly

The mobile counterweight allows the camera to reach as far as 160 cm which is much more than in other sliders. Also the angles of operations are virtually unlimited – up to 60 degrees and 90 degrees vertical. The effort required for the movement has been minimized thanks to the counterweight system – when the camera heads one way, the counterweight goes the other assuring the perfect balance and, as a result – full control. This feature is unique in our camera crane. Moreover, the dolly and counterweight movement is very quiet.

DC Slider Crane

MINI JIB

The crane configuration gives such possibilities as the movement of the camera parallel to the ground in 3 axis. The crane can be moved up to maximum of 3 meters which depends on the tripod base. Additional feature includes locking the camera on a given subject (not being fixed in a given position) through easily adjustable parallelogram bar. The camera crane working as a jib gives the span of operation of 160 cm horizontally plus 360 degree scope of movements of the jib arm. There is also the possibility to tilt or pan the camera.

DollyCrane Tower

Tower

With the simple removal and repositioning of two handles, the DollyCrane HD becomes a tower allowing for an exact vertical camera move through the full range of the 160cm track. Minimum and maximum heights of the camera moves, when mounted on the tower, are dependent on tripod configuration. The counterbalance system maintains a steady resistance to camera moves reducing the possibilities of irregular movements during the start or finish of a camera move.

counterweight system


As the camera moves in one direction, the counterweight tracks
in the opposite direction, allowing for continuous perfect balance and control.

And that's what makes DollyCrane so unique!





PATENT PENDING

 

All the required hardware is included with this state-of-the-art, technologically advanced system
making DollyCrane the premier choice of professionals worldwide.

DollyCrane Angles

 

A special positive-locking feature, which keeps the camera in a given position, both off-axis or vertical,
makes creative imagining simple. The border heights of the camera crane depend on the tripod’s height.

LOW PROFILE TILT PLATE

The new, low profile plate for the FloatCam DollyCrane and DollyCrane HD, car mount systems, and many other devices, provides a stable platform when fluid movement is not required. Quite often, when doing timelapse or motion control imaging, it is important to keep the camera steady in a predetermined, locked-down position. The Low Profile Plate allows you to make precise positioning to both pan and tilt functions before securing the camera to begin your shooting sequence. It lowers the center of gravity on the camera package to ensure stable, solid imaging. The Low Profile Tilt Plate can also be used on car mount systems and other applications where camera lock-down is preferred over camera movement.


It comes with a 3/8" tapped flat base. Weight: 1kg (2.2lbs), Dimensions: 14 x 17 x 6cm (5.5"L x 6.5"W x 2.5"H); +- 30 degrees of tilt.
