Cinevate’s Dolly “Ballare” (Patent Pending) uses a unique wheel system that not only follows curves and non-parallel track, but also tackles uneven (bumpy) track without derailing. Designed to carry in excess of 500lbs, it features dual stance adjustment for use both with a jib (wide), or as a doorway dolly (narrow). There are no less than 44 ball bearings, 16 purpose designed wheels, and a full stainless steel fastener set used with the result that the system is incredibly strong, and smooth.
Construction is 100% CNC milled/formed aluminum with the result that the unit (less 100mm bowl/mast) weights a scant 46lbs. The optional 100mm bowl/tower attaches in seconds with no tools and extends from 28 to 53 inches. It is designed to support both a camera and a jib (coming soon!)
The dolly will ship with two pipe couplers to seamlessly join two 1″ ID tubes together. We use schedule 40, 25mm ID PVC pipe as it bends very nicely for use with curved setups. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery until we get production fully ramped.
