Many filmmakers and videographers are looking for an affordable and portable camera dolly system to add smooth tracking shots to their productions. The Rail Runner camera dolly system is a versatile, and portable camera dolly system that delivers the benefits of a skate dolly combined with the smoothness and versatility of a rail dolly. With its exclusive “rail hugger” wheel system, the dolly can be used on any flat surface for orbiting, low angle, and tabletop product shots; or the dolly can be mounted on rails or ride on wood planks for ultra-smooth long tracking shots.
Smooth Rail System
The system consists of a dolly and two rail ends. The user can use inexpensive ¾ inch PVC pipe, electrical conduit, or even schedule 40 iron pipe in lengths up to 12 feet as rails. The rail ends are easy to pack and transport and can be mounted on tripods, baby pins, C-stands, lighting stands or used on the ground. The inexpensive rails can be acquired on location at a home improvement or hardware store to avoid transporting. The rails and dolly can be rigged in a variety of configurations to get shots that usually require heavy and expensive dollies or cranes.
