The RigWheels Camera Dolly Kit combines 4 RigWheels and 1 RigPlate with the appropriate mounting hardware for use together. RigWheels camera dolly kits and parts are designed for easy expansion and multifunction use. This camera dolly kit allows you to operate on smooth flat surfaces (such as a countertop or glass table) as well as on pipe. RigWheels camera dolly wheels will run on any smooth rigid pipe with an outside diameter between 1-1/8" and 2".
In addition to the variety of styles of movement you can achieve with this kit, you always have the ability to increase functionality by adding different parts. You can add 2 RigAxels with inline wheels to configure a RigSkate. Add a second RigPlate or a RigAxel with RigWheels and you can configure a captive rail camera dolly.
RigWheels are mounted to the RigPlate with common 5/16" or 8 mm bolts. As often as possible, common parts and hardware are used to modify and come up with different configurations.
This camera dolly travels extremely well. With the RigWheels removed, the flat 5/16" thick RigPlate can fit in many common places like a laptop pocket. The 4 RigWheels packed into their included travel bag are about the size of a portable hard drive. PVC pipe works well for applications when the pipe will be on the ground or a solid surface. Aluminum and steel pipe/tube are recommended for suspended camera dolly applications.
