About this item

The Digital Juice Orbit Micro is a fun, compact portable dolly system for video-capable cameras that allows you to capture smooth professional low-angle or tabletop tracking shots on any smooth surface - without the hassle of larger, more expensive equipment. This sturdy affordable dolly option is easy to set up and use for both straight and curved dolly action shots. Its two axles, each with two inline skate-type wheels, can be adjusted with a quick turn of the ergonomic screw knob on each side of the base plate so that the wheels glide smoothly in a straight line, or in a tight or gradual arc up to 360 degrees.

The compact 6-5/8" x 2-3/8" aluminum base plate contains three 1/4"-20 threaded holes where you can mount your camera or ball head/camera combination as well as any compatible accessory needed such as articulating arms, portable lights, viewfinders and monitors. Put your smartphone, small camcorder, point and shoot, micro 4/3 or full DSLR camera to work in a whole new way and add motion to your usual static shots - without the jitter and shake of a handheld camera.

The Orbit Micro allows you to shoot from new perspectives, letting you experiment with low angles, close-up tabletop work or stop motion animations, or simply giving you that stable tracking shot you need in situations where traditional tracks and dollies won't fit or are too heavy and expensive to use.

Key Features

  • The Orbit Micro platform is extendable beyond providing a tracking camera mount
  • The camera itself can be mounted to the base directly using the removable 1/4"-20 post included, attached on the end of an articulating arm or placed on top of a compatible ball head to give you more flexibility and precision with your camera angle
  • The entire lightweight Orbit Micro unit is made with high quality materials and offers an amazingly sturdy and stable smooth rolling platform. The base plate and thumbscrew knobs are made of high quality aluminum with a matte black anodized finish
  • The two adjustable axles on the Orbit Micro can be set to allow you to track in straight or curved lines. The arc of the motion can be set (using the 2 locking ergonomic thumbscrew knobs) for broad open curves or for motion in a full 360 degree circle around the subject
  • The Orbit Micro is compatible with a wide variety of small camcorders, point and shoots, DSLRs, smart phones and micro 4/3 cameras. In some cases you may need to counterbalance the weight of your camera with another attached accessory, making the additional mounting holes doubly useful
