When you don’t need the full range of motion provided by our Zebra, Gazelle, or Graphlite motion control rigs, our extensive line of motion control dollies could be the answer. Our Motion Control dollies come standard with 36 feet of track, and a Pan/Tilt or Pan/Tilt/Roll head, and can be used with shorter, or much longer track runs. Our new Cheetah Dolly is able to travel at a blinding 18 feet per second, for tracking the fastest live-action subjects, including professional athletes at full speed. Our dollies can be configured for narrow or wide gauge track, for doorway access, and can be used on curved or straight track.
Controls and Encoders
A variety of controls and encoders, including P/T/R wheels, hand wheels, pan bar, t-bar, and Preston FIZ controls, are available for performing realtime live-action moves, which can be precisely repeated.
Our Preston Interface allows us to precisely control Preston Lens motors, and interface with Preston 1 or 2 series hand controls, for familiar and reliable lens control. We also can supply our own complete Preston 2 kit for your next shoot.
