Dolly Track End Kit
The dolly system is comprised of two track end brackets that ensure the pipe stays the proper distance apart. Track ends are designed to go into any standard 1 1/8" Junior receiver. Flip the track and bracket assembly over and support it with carpenter's horses or similar items of matching height or place it on the ground for low mode.
Tripod Head Adapters
We have specially made 75mm and 100mm adapters that fit most standard leveling heads with a Mitchell mount. The dolly comes machined with a standard Mitchell mount.
What to Use as Track
We supply 6' and 4' length pipe for use as track. However, you can use any pipe or round rigid structure with an outside diameter of 1.66" (42.2mm). This is the common size for 1 1/4" pipe or conduit. We highly recommend using Schedule 80 aluminum pipe. One supplier is ONLINEMETALS.COM. They have 6' and 8' lengths of Schedule 80 aluminum pipe in stock, no minimum order, and they ship all over the U.S. You can also use PVC pipe so long as it is supported mid-span to avoid sag.
The Dana Dolly can take everything from DSLR's to full 35mm cameras and will help you get that smooth tracking shot for your next project.
