Excellent Dolly

Lion heart, B&H Photo
31 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Very easy to push over flat surface. Not recommended for uneven surface such as tile floor, uneven blacktop or cracks. Well built, very easy to insert and lock in tripod legs. I'm very happy with this Dolly system and highly recommended.

Used for prosumer camera

  • Excerpt: This is a pretty good dolly. Not too heavy. Folds into a small package. Smooth rollers. As other reviewers pointed out, this is not for thick carpet. The brakes are very secure but low to the ground. It has a good look and feel.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Professional Quality

BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD

Mrbill, Adorama
25 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I use the dolly under my 25x100 binos on a Manfrotto 502AH head and 028B head. The rig is fairly heavy. While I could easily pan (say, 90°) I would be on the other side of the elevator crank. Physically turning the tripod is tricky as the rig is top-heavy. However, with the Dolly, I step on the pedal with my foot lowering the wheels, swivel or roll the whole rig to a new location, then effortlessly raise the wheels with the toe lever.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great For Astronomy, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: None

Well built piece of video equipment!

Rob (AKA The Old Dog), B&H Photo
29 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This dolly is built well and adapted well to my Diawa Slik DST 73 video tripod (also from B&H). I did have to use surgical rubber to insure positive lock to the tripod feet but was expecting that as this is a Manfrotto product and plan to get a Manfrotto tripod for it in the future when budget allows. But...it works well on smooth surfaces.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Professional Quality, Rugged
  • Cons: Not for rough floors

"Must-have Gear for the professional"

26 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I have been using this Dolly in wedding, party, concert, etc. It helps seamless movement to cover every activities. Central pedal locking is one of the best features it has. I would give 5 star for this product had it built with little larger caster wheel.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight

Pleasantly Surprised

V the situation, B&H Photo
15 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I couldn't afford an expensive dolly and just wanted something that made the camera mobile for certain set ups. I saw this on B&H and thought why not. By the look of it in the picture I was expecting a small flimsy aluminum thing, but was pleasantly surprised by when I got it. It's not flimsy it's well made beefier than I expected. Tripod sits perfectly on it. I am very impressed with the breaks.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

harika

  • Summary: güzel bir ürün tek bir yerden tekerleklerin kilitlenmesi ve yere sabitlenmesi gerçekten çekimlerde kolaylık sağlıyor daha öncede vinten in dolly sini kullanmıştım ama stüdyo içinde tekerleklerini kilitlemek ciddi sorun oluyordu
