Kickstarter: CineSkates – DSLR Dolly

CineSkates are a set of three wheels that quickly attach to a tripod and enable fluid, rolling video in an ultra-portable package. CineSkates work specifically with the GorillaPod Focus tripod. A ballhead is also required… most small, strong ballheads will work great. Fortunately, JOBY, the maker of GorillaPod Focus and Ballhead X has agreed to include their products in the CineSkates System at a generous price!

Since DSLRs have become amazing at taking videos I have been thinking about purchasing a dolly but they are expensive and bulky. But with this new Kickstarter project called Cineskates its a totally different dolly solution. This Kickstarter project is in such high demand its gone past $100,000 more than the original $20,000 goal. The Camera Sliders attach to the bottom of a Gorilla pod (included), changing it into an extremely versatile and flexible camera dolly. With such flexibility and the adjustable BallHead, the CineSkates make it easy to achieve low and creative camera angles. I didn’t even think about how you can be creative and angle the Gorilla Pod legs to make the camera move in interesting ways, you can see it by checking out the video below. I already backed the project and can’t wait to get my hands on the CineSkates and test it out as I already have the GorillaPod Focus and X-Ballhead.
