TheCinetics CineMoco Dolly with V Wheelsenables smooth, motor-controlled motion on flat surfaces and also on SkateTrack (sold separately).
The CineMoco is a powerful and versatile motion control system that makes smooth repeatable moves for video, shoots photos between moves for time-lapse photography, and moves on command for stop motion animation. It runs from open source software and includes a built-in, 5-hour rechargeable battery. The CineMoco works best horizontally but can also do inclines of up to 10°. Most CineMoco functions do not require a camera cable.
The SkatePlate is a dolly frame with a retractable, quick-set-up design. Simply fold the 3 legs out and tighten the handles, and the SkatePlate locks in to a sturdy configuration. You can follow the easy-to-read illustrations found on the face of the SkatePlate to line up the wheels for straight shots or curves and use the gradated notches for optimum alignment every time. The SkatePlate is also compatible with CineSkates, CineSquid, and many other products (all sold separately) with Cinetics Connect technology. Any tripod head (ball-head, fluid head, etc) with a ¼”-20 thread is necessary for use.
The CineSkates V Wheels are made specifically to give you a smooth roll on flat surfaces and the Cinetics SkateTrack. They form a seamless connection with the SkateTrack and keep your camera rolling, no matter what surface you encounter. They utilize the Cinetics Connect platform for quick snap-on, snap-off assembly.
