Ooh is this not a funky little skater dolly that you could take home to your parents and not feel guilty about using in front of them. The CineSkates are made from injection molded plastic, soft urethane, hardened chromium steel, low profile black-oxide steel hardware, and other secret herbs and spices and the CineSkates slider dolly should be tough enough to handle a payload of around 2.5kg 5lbs. The CineSkates project is in its Kickstarter stage right now but things are rolling along so quickly with the funding and development you can expect to purchase a CineSkates camera slider at the end of October.
CineSkates are a set of three wheels that quickly attach to a tripod and enable fluid, rolling video in an ultra-portable package. Watch the video to see what they are capable of… CineSkates were used to film it!
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!
