Essential Info

Whether you're a beginning photographer or an experienced videographer the REVOLVE Camera Dolly with Friction Arm can help you better your craft. The Camera Dolly from REVOLVE has been designed for use on virtually all surfaces and locations to help capture smooth and dynamic video footage and photos. Its rotating axels allow for the Camera Dolly to move in a straight line, arc or full circle for 360° shots and the angle marking lines on each axel ensure they are perfectly aligned with the other. A wide variety of rotational, tracking, stop motion and time lapse shots are easily achieved thanks to the dolly's soft urethane wheels, rotating axels and friction arm mount. The included friction arm mount accessory securely holds the camera, such as an iPhone or DSLR, in place and can be adjusted and contorted to the perfect angle needed for your shot. The friction arm can be mounted to the middle of the dolly base (3/8" hole) or on either axel as each axel has 2 threaded 1/4" holes. Any camera, friction arm, tripod head, mount, etc with 1/4" or 3/8" threading will be compatible with the Camera Dolly. The threaded holes on each axel have a variety of uses from serving as mounting points for additional camera accessories to connecting of guide rods (included) for use with a rail.

Included with the REVOLVE Camera Dolly are 2 rail clamps that will secure 2 rails (sold separately) into place creating a track for the Camera Dolly to travel along. The rail clamps are compatible with any pipe, rail, rod, or wooden dowel that has an outer diameter up to 1-3/8". Suggested track materials by REVOLVE Camera are 1" PVC pipe (1.33" outer diameter) which is great for use up to 4' but the pipe may begin to bend at longer lengths. For longer tracking shots 1-3/8" outer diameter curtain rod is suggested as it is sturdier and best for use with heavier cameras. The REVOLVE Camera Dolly is constructed of hard anodized aircraft grade aluminum making it very lightweight and strong, protecting against wear and corrosion.

Hands-On Product Review
The REVOLVE Camera Dolly caught my interest immediately when I saw it. As an amateur photographer/videographer I am always trying to find new ways to capture different shots. The first thing I noticed when I received the package and opened the carrying case was the quality of the construction of the components; very industrial. Everything screwed together for a strong hold, and even the wheels glide effortlessly across any smooth surface. The universal smartphone mount was perfect for an iPhone 5 and a Droid RAZR M, however anything wider than those may not fit, (we did find out that a larger adapter is in the works). The smartphone mount is fully articulating with a screw clamp that allows you to put the phone in the perfect position you want. The wheels also rotate so you can make the dolly turn (adjustment lines are embedded into the base for precise positioning). With the smartphone in place, we tried several different shots rolling the dolly across the floor, going around the corner, taking a 360 degree product shot...we even grabbed a couple of pieces of 1" PVC pipe from the local hardware store and did some long run sliding shots (which worked better the second time after we forgot to install the friction arm). All in all, I think this is a really cool product that offers a new and innovative way to capture the perfect shot.
