Polly Dolly Freewheel Camera Dolly System. NAB 2013.


Here is a quick take on the new Polly Dolly Freewheel dolly system. This is one super smooth dolly system. It takes very little effort to start and stop the dolly. The system also has stop motion marks. This would be a great alternative for a small studio or rental house. The Polly Dolly will set you back around $3500 US.

Here is a rip from the polly systems website.

Polly is designed to create smooth and stabilized camera movements in a special and innovative way. A flywheel gear – made of high-grade steel – simultaneously accumulates the kinetic energy and stabilizes the movement. With a camera and a video-head mounted on the top (3/8” adapter included) you can achieve constant and ultra slow tracking shots with a fingertip. Polly works on every flat surface. A scale on the flywheel enables super-precise stopmotion dolly shots, too. (Width: 200 mm; Height: 200 mm; Length: 280 mm; Weight: 7 kg)
